The Kissing Booth 2! Joey King and Joel Courtney Announce Hit Netflix Movie is Getting a Sequel
Get ready for a lot more kissing!
Stars Joey King and Joel Courtney celebrated Valentine’s Day on Thursday by announcing that their Netflix movie The Kissing Booth is getting a sequel with a silly video of them building an actual kissing booth.
“YUP!!! WE ARE GETTING A SEQUEL!!!” King, 19, captioned the video on her Instagram.
Courtney and King play life-long best friends Lee and Elle who are tested by Elle’s secret relationship with Lee’s older brother Noah (Jacob Elordi) — even though it’s against the rules of their friendship. But after Noah and Elle inadvertently kiss at a kissing booth Elle set up for the school, the two are forced to reckon with their feelings while trying not to hurt Lee.
Netflix announced that all three actors will be returning for the sequel.
The original left off with Noah and Elle confessing their feelings for each other before Noah moves away to go to college at Harvard, with their relationship ambiguous.
The Kissing Booth first premiered on Netflix in May 2018 and became an instant hit, with subsequent movies like Set It Up and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before cementing the streaming platform as the go-to for modern rom-coms.
