When is The Kissing Booth 2 Coming Out on Netflix?
From The Cinemaholic:
‘The Kissing Booth’ is a romantic comedy in its truest essence. And just like most of the movies of this genre, it disregarded the critics’ feelings and went straight for the heart. Based on the book of Beth Reekles, ‘The Kissing Booth’ came out on Netflix last year. The story revolves around two teenage best friends Elle Evans and Lee Flynn, and Lee’s older brother Noah. Elle and Lee are best friends right from their birth, quite literally. They have strong rules in their friendship but teenage hormones threaten to put emotions before clauses.
‘The Kissing Booth’ featured a vibrant and young cast. Joey King, Joel Courtney, and Jacob Elordi starred as the young peeps conflicted with changing sparks. The movie received a fair share of negative responses from the critics but the audience was more kinder to it. It currently has a 17% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes. ‘The Kissing Booth’ was termed as a shallow attempt at good old high school romance and a step back as a misogynistic movie.
But these things don’t matter to Netflix as it was one of the most viewed movies of 2018 for the streaming behemoth. Apart from ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ which was a grand winner for both the audience and critics, ‘The Kissing Booth’ charmed the masses only. It was also the most re-watched movie in 2018 on Netflix. Its incredible viewership record prompted Netflix to announce the sequel to the movie in early 2019.
‘The Kissing Booth 2’ will also be based on a Beth Reekles book. For the sequel, the movie will follow the book, ‘The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance’.

But for that, we need to rehash our knowledge of the first movie. The sequel directly follows the events of ‘The Kissing Booth’ so let’s look at what happened in ‘The Kissing Booth’.
