In 2018, we were blessed with Netflix‘s Summer Of Love. It introduced us to so many of our now-favorite actors. So many to stan, so little screen time to stan from. But never fear, we have been blessed. Two of our favorites – The Kissing Booth and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – are getting sequels! This is what we know so far…
The Kissing Booth
If you didn’t watch The Kissing Booth last year… did you even know Netflix existed? Or movies at all for that matter? Well if you haven’t seen it, you really should. There’s a reason why it was Netflix‘s most rewatched movie of 2018.
It was where we first fell in love with Joey King as she portrayed Elle Evans, navigating high school life with her BFF Lee (Joel Courtney) until she fell for his older brother Noah (Jacob Elordi). Would you believe there’s a kissing booth involved? Wild. Who would have guessed?
We won’t ruin the ending if you haven’t seen it, but you should probably catch up before the sequel airs.
The Kissing Booth 2
Although there is no confirmed date or title change for the sequel, we do know the movie has already finished filming, from a post that Joey shared on Instagram.
Although not much is known about the plot for the sequel, we do know two new characters are joining the cast! Maisie Richardson-Sellers joins as Chloe, and Taylor Perez joins as Marco, and according to Netflix, they “are love interests…but not for each other…“
With a book sequel coming soon, author Beth Reekles has confirmed the movie and book will have similar plot lines. The book sequel The Kissing Booth 2: Going The Distance is
“Elle Evans seems to have finally tamed hotter-than-hot
bad boyNoah 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 newboy Levi. He’s gentle, sweet, cute – and definitely interested in Elle. With her heart on the line, what’s a girl to do?”
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Based on Jenny Han‘s novel of the same name, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before also ranked as one on Netflix‘s most rewatched films of 2018, in second place! It’s obvious why – Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) really are the cutest couple around (narrowly beating Lara Jean and her scrunchie).
The already announced sequel, To All The Boys PS I Still Love You, is set to air February 12th 2020, but in a surprise Instagram post, Lana and Noah announced they’ve been filming back-to-back for a third movie!
To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
No plot details have been revealed as of yet, but if To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You is anything like the book, trouble may be in store for Lara Jean and Peter. Arriving at the end of the first movie, John Ambrose McLaren knocks Lara Jean‘s door, with her letter that had been accidentally sent, and a bouquet of flowers, to reveal he had feelings for her too.
And when Lara Jean, Peter and John arrive at the same party, a love triangle is formed. Will the movie see the same plot? Only time will tell. The title certainly suggests it…
John Ambrose McClaren has also been recast for the movie, and will now be played by Jordan Fisher.
To All The Boys: Always And Forever, Lara Jean
Although likely to be based on Han‘s third novel, details are again unknown for the plot of To All The Boys: Always And Forever, Lara Jean. But if the film follows the timeline set in the third book of the same name, the movie can be expected to explore Lara Jean and Peter‘s relationship as they reach their final year of high school.
As the couple consider their future after high school, the longevity of their relationship is questioned, and they look to university. However, even the first movie borrowed elements from the second and third, so there’s no confirmation this movie won’t go in a slightly different direction too.
All we know is we’re impatient and excited to find out – if only to see if Lara Jean gets any new scrunchies.
