The most-watched OTT platform, Netflix, released the trailer of much-anticipated sequel, The Kissing Booth 2. It advanced further from where the original film left off, with Noah in college at Harvard and Elle returning to high school for senior year. Unfortunately, their long-distance relationship takes a new turn after Elle met a “charismatic new classmate” named Marco, played by Taylor Zakhar Perez, and Noah befriended a “seemingly-perfect college girl” named Chloe, played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers, according to the official plot. The trailer of the sequel also came up with a new line, “Rules can be broken but so can hearts”.
Netflix indicated the arrival of ‘The Kissing Booth’ sequel on Valentine’s Day of 2019 but without mentioning a formal date for the premiere. But then, Joey King revealed The Kissing Booth 2 release date in May of 2020, during a “Kissing Booth Secrets Live” online event. The event also included a fan Q&A, movie trivia, and introductory interactions with Perez and Richardson-Sellers, who will be seen essaying new love interests in the sequel.
While the session was in full swing, Perez also gave a view into the upcoming sequel and said that his role, “a musical and charismatic new classmate,” would “form a close relationship” with Elle. All three actors dropped hints at the new connection, stating that would result in creating plenty of drama for the couple. Fans can be certain Elle and Noah’s long-distance relationship will spark with new twists and turns and shenanigans into the mix.
The rom-com, The Kissing Booth, is based on the novel of the same name by Beth Reekles. Reportedly, she self-published it on Wattpad. The second book in the series is the growing distance and dives into the ways Elle and Noah’s newly-committed relationship is challenged by geography and new love interests.
The instalment preceeding the second part of the film was released in 2018 and was an instant hit despite receiving negative reviews from the critics. The Vince Marcello helmed film followed Elle (Joey King), a quirky, late-blooming teenager whose emerging camaraderie with the high school senior Noah (Jacob Elordi) changed her lifelong friendship with Noah’s younger brother Lee (Joel Courtney) in danger.
