“The Kissing Booth 2,” the sequel to Netflix’s popular teen rom-com, will debut on Netflix on July 24. The follow-up — again starring Joey King, Joel Courtney and Jacob Elordi.
King shared the news Thursday night during a live event on YouTube, where she was joined by fellow cast members to share secrets about the upcoming movie. "That's just days before my birthday. What a beautiful birthday present!" King said. "I'm so excited."
“The Kissing Booth” became a breakout hit among teen audiences when it premiered in 2018. At the time, Netflix reported that it was one of its most-rewatched original films that year. Though Netflix rarely provides statistics in context, the company’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said “The Kissing Booth” was “one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world.”
The Kissing Booth was released by Netflix in May 2018, following Elle (King), a teenager whose budding romance with high school senior and bad boy Noah (Jacob Elordi) puts her lifelong friendship with Noah's younger brother, Lee (Joel Courtney), in jeopardy. The movie was a huge commercial success for the streaming service.
The Kissing Booth 2 picks up with Noah at Harvard and Elle in her senior year of high school. She'll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with Lee, and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.
The original film follows King’s character, a high schooler who runs into trouble when she starts to fall for her best friend’s older brother. The sequel’s tagline is “Rules can be broken, but so can hearts.”
