The Kissing Booth was a surprise success for Netflix and helped launch the careers of stars Joey King and Jacob Elordi. The pair are back as Elle Evans and Noah Flynn for some more teenage angst and heartbreak. Now they are coming back to Netflix again for fans to enjoy in the second instalment of the Kissing Booth franchise.
When is The Kissing Booth 2 arriving on Netflix?
The Kissing Booth 2 is arriving on Netflix on July 24.
The movie was filmed over summer and autumn last year, and clearly all the editing and post-production was finished so it could be unveiled this year.
The film will likely be released on Netflix at midnight PT because the company’s headquarters are located in California which falls into this time.
This is the time Netflix releases all of its Original films and show as well as syndicated content its bought from other broadcasters.
Netflix will be released the series globally in one go and the time of release will vary depending on your geographical location.
As a result, fans in the UK can expect to be able to watch the film from around 8am on July 24, however, for keen viewers it is worth checking at midnight BST in case the film arrives at midnight in the UK as well.
What is The Kissing Booth 2 about?
The next film in the franchise is based on The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance by Beth Reekles, the second in her book series.
In the first film, Noah left to go off to college, while Elle was left wondering whether the pair would make it as a couple.
While they are evidently still together when the movie starts, the official synopsis suggests it is not going to be smooth sailing,
The synopsis reads: “Elle Evans just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn.
“But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year.
“She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee, and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco.
“When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl, Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs.”
Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Taylor Perez have joined the cast as Chloe and Marco, respectively, so these two may be the thorns in the side of Noah and Elle’s relationship.
As well as them, Joel Courtney is returning as Lee Flynn, Noah’s brother and Elle’s closest friend; Meganne Young as Lee’s girlfriend Rachel; Molly Ringwald as Mrs Flynn and Bianca Bosch as Olivia.
The Kissing Booth 2 arrives on Netflix on July 24 at midnight, which may be closer to 8am for UK viewers
