The Kissing Booth 2: Everything We Know So Far

From NetflixLife: The Kissing Booth 2: Everything We Know So Far

Everything we know so far about Netflix’s The Kissing Booth 2 starring Joey King, Jacob Elordi and Joel Courtney!

The Netflix original film The Kissing Booth premiered on Netflix during Netflix’s “summer of love” in 2018 and was a massive success. The film is easily one of the most popular Netflix romantic comedies to date, and because of that, the film is getting a sequel!

That’s right; Netflix is making The Kissing Booth 2. The streaming network announced a sequel was in the works on Valentine’s Day earlier this year.

Fans are obviously desperate for any news about the film, so we have share everything we know about the series so far.

Check out the official announcement below!

Release Date

This is the most important thing fans want to know: When is The Kissing Booth 2 coming to Netflix?

Well, we don’t know the exact release date yet because Netflix has not announced it. But, don’t worry. We have a pretty good idea when to expect The Kissing Booth 2.

The Kissing Booth 2 started filming earlier this summer, and it usually takes about one year to film, edit and promote the film before it hits Netflix. Right now, we’re thinking The Kissing Booth 2 will be released in the late spring (May or June) or summer of 2020.

At the time of publishing, I’d expect the film later in the summer, but because of the subject matter and school tie-ins, I could see Netflix pushing this out at the end of the school year and beginning of summer if they can.

Stay tuned for the official release date!

Is The Kissing Booth 2 based on a book?

As many people know, The Kissing Booth is based on the book of the same name by Beth Reekles. There is no sequel yet, but Reekles is working on that sequel! Reekles announced the news on Twitter earlier this year that The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance is in the works.

Reekles also added that the film will be based on the book, as well. The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance will be released on Jan. 2, 2020.

So, yes, The Kissing Booth 2 will be based on Reekles’ new book, which, again, will be released in January 2020.  You can pre-order the book now on Amazon and other book stores.

What is The Kissing Booth 2 about?

That’s the other good question at this point. Things were in a relatively good place for Elle, Lee and Noah at the end of the first film.

Of course, Noah was going off to college, though, so there’s bound to be some big-time drama. According to a report from Deadline, Noah might have a new girlfriend or new love interest, which means Elle and Noah are probably not together or things are on the rocks.

The Deadline report shared the news that Maisie Richardson-Sellars will play a “seemingly perfect college girl.” That’s not a good sign for Noah and Elle.

To make the long-distance relationship even more complicated, there’s a new guy that might’ve caught Elle’s eye. According to the Deadline report, Taylor Perez stars as Marco, who appears to be a possible love interest for Elle.

We’ll see if Elle and Noah’s relationship will survive!


It looks like most of the cast is back for the sequel, according to the deadline report. Of course, Joey King, Jacob Elordi and Joel Courtney will be back, but Molly Ringwald, Meganne Young, and Carson White will also return, according to Deadline.

I’m sure there will be even more new cast members for the film, as well.

That’s all we know about The Kissing Booth 2 so far! Stay tuned for more news about the sure-to-be hit Netflix original film!
