Courtney and Scholink recently attended the premiere for Netflix’s hit rom-com film To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. While posing on the red carpet for photos, Courtney looked sharp in a black and blue suit, while Scholink opted for a dark blue dress.

Courtney will reprise his role as Lee in The Kissing Booth sequel. The original film follows the story of teenager Elle (King) whose budding romance with a high school senior, Noah (Jacob Elordi) puts her lifelong friendship with Noah’s younger brother, Lee (Courtney) in jeopardy.

The film is based on a book of the same name by Beth Reekles.


King teased the sequel in July telling PEOPLE what fans could expect.

“So many fan favorites are back and you can expect a lot of crazy things to happen in Elle and Lee’s friendship, as well as in Noah and Elle’s relationship,” she said.

Courtney previously starred in the lead role in the 2011 sci-fi film Super 8. His television credits include roles in the CW series The Messengers, which ran for only one season in 2015, as well as one episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
