If you can’t wait to find out what happens to Elle, Noah, Marco, and the rest of the crew, you’re not alone in wanting The Kissing Booth 3 release date — and star Joey King knows it. As noted by JustJared Jr., the actor shared the news about the forthcoming third installment in the series when accepting her People’s Choice Award for Comedy Movie Star.
“I really want to thank all the people that voted … you guys. It’s so awesome that you guys voted for me,” Joey said. “This year has been so weird. I’m not going to be the first person to say that tonight on this stage, 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.”
The good vibes were strong and Joey couldn’t resist sharing the news of The Kissing Booth 3 release date. “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 Kissing Booth 3, our final installment, is going to be released in summer 2021!” she announced. “I am so excited, I wish it was tomorrow! I really, really wish it was tomorrow! Thank you guys so much! Thank you for loving this movie, and loving this character as much as I do.”
Here’s what we know for sure about the third movie. The entire cast will return, even Jacob Elordi, who keeps coming up with new insults about the films. We also know that it’s the final film in the series, and that it’s the “culmination” of the coming-of-age story for the main characters.
“Although their paths are entwined, each has their own journey with a set of challenges that they need to overcome before closing the chapter of their lives that was adolescence and beginning their new journey into adulthood,” director Vince Marcello told Variety earlier this year. Will Elle and Noah stay together? Will her friendship with Lee stay strong? Will there be more Marco magic? We’ll find out next summer!
