When will The Kissing Booth 2 be released on Netflix?

So far, there is no exact confirmed date but filming has officially wrapped which means it won't be long until it hits Netflix.

It sounds like the film will be based off the upcoming sequel to the original novel, which was written by Beth Reekles. According to Reekles, The Kissing Booth 2: Going The Distance became available to read in January 2020.

The Kissing Booth was released in May 2018, so expect the film to drop around Summer 2020.

What happens in the plot of The Kissing Booth 2?

According to the synopsis of The Kissing Booth 2: Going The Distance, Noah and Elle's relationship is about to get 10 times more complicated thanks to their new long distance status. Noah is now at Harvard and Elle is completing her senior year at high school with Lee.

The synopsis for the upcoming book reads: "Elle Evans seems to have finally tamed hotter-than-hot bad boy Noah Flynn, but now they're facing a new challenge. Noah's 3,000 miles away at Harvard, which means they're officially a long-distance couple - and it's tough.

After all, there's only so much texts and calls can satisfy - and when Elle sees a post which suggests Noah's getting friendly with someone else, she's devastated. On top of that, it's hard to ignore new boy Levi. He's gentle, sweet, cute - and definitely interested in Elle. With her heart on the line, what's a girl to do?"

There may be several small elements in the film that differ from the book (like 'Levi' now being called 'Marco') but the storyline will likely take a similar shape.

Oh, and just incase you were wondering... there will be more Dance Dance Revolution battles too. Joey King revealed to the LA Times that they're even more intense than before: "It is so intense and the first movie you thought we had hard DDR, well, just you freaking wait for the second one," she said.

Jacob Elordi will return as Noah Flynn and Molly Ringwald will be back for more scenes as Lee and Noah's mother.

Joining the cast for the sequel are Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Taylor Perez, both playing new characters who end up putting a bit of a strain on Noah and Elle's long-distance relationship.

IMDb also lists Meganne Young, who played Lee's girlfriend Rachel, as a returning cast member.
