Sunday was a big day for The Kissing Booth fans! Not only did the film win big at the People’s Choice Awards 2020, Joey King also revealed that The Kissing Booth 3 will premiere in summer 2021.
King bagged an award for ‘Comedy Movie Star of 2020’ at the ceremony and gave fans the good news during her acceptance speech.
“This year has been so weird. I’m not gonna be the first person to say that tonight on this stage,” she started.
“But the fact that our movie and my character brought some laughter to everybody at home, that makes me smile. That makes me feel so good. That makes me feel so happy. I want to thank our director, Vince Marcello. I want to thank Netflix. And, also, I told myself that if I won, I would share a very exciting piece of news with everybody.”
“So I want to tell you that The Kissing Booth 3, our final installment, is going to be released in summer 2021. I’m so excited! I wish it was tomorrow,” King said. “I really wish it was tomorrow. Thank you guys so much! Thank you for loving this movie and for loving this character as much as I do. It just means so much.”
Besides Joey King’s award, the Kissing Booth 2 also won ‘Comedy Movie of 2020’.
All that we know about Joey King’s The Kissing Booth 3
In the first installment of The Kissing Booth, we saw Elle Evans (Joey King) fall for the high-school jock, Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). Her romance started to jeopardize her relationship with her childhood best friend, Lee (Joel Courtney) and a lot of drama followed.
In the sequel, Elle was finishing high-school while Noah had moved to another country for college. As the couple tried to figure out long-distance, we had the handsome Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez) complicating matters of the heart.
And in Kissing Booth 3, Joey King’s Elle will be caught in another conundrum – about where to attend college. On one hand, she has an offer from Harvard, also where her boyfriend is attending college. And on the other hand, there’s Berkeley, where she and Lee always planned to go. What will Elle choose?
Netflix released a short teaser for the third movie back in July. In the promo, Elle declines a call from the Harvard Admissions Office as she’s enjoying the summer with Noah and her friends. Now that’s something!
There’s more! The entire cast, including Taylor Zakhar Perez and Meganne Young, will return for the third and the final installment.
Luckily, Kissing Booth 3 was shot at the same time as its prequel, meaning that the coronavirus pandemic that almost brought Hollywood to a standstill had little impact on its filming.
