Netflix is taking another trip to The Kissing Booth. Multiple outlets including Deadline reported Sunday that a third movie in the hit teen rom-com franchise has already been filmed with stars Joey King, Jacob Elordi, Joel Courtney and most of the original cast. King revealed the news herself during a YouTube livestream event with the cast.
"It's true!" King told viewers over the weekend. "You guys, I just want to thank the fans for their tremendous support and the love they have shown us and the amazing franchise. From the first movie to the second one just coming out on Friday. I mean, the explosion of love have been so real. And it's because of everyone on here that this all happened, really."

The movie was reportedly filmed at the same time as The Kissing Booth 2, which hit Netflix on July 24. Deadline reports that King, Elordi, and Courtney will be joined by Taylor Zakhar Perez, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Meganne Young and Molly Ringwald for the third film. Vince Marcello, who wrote and directed the first two movies, helmed the third and penned the script with Jay Arnold.
Along with the surprise news came an exclusive clip from the upcoming film. In it, Elle (King) and Noah (Elordi) get flirtatious after she declines a call from the Harvard admissions office. They're joined by Lee (Courtney) and his on-again girlfriend Rachel (Young) for a poolside hangout. At the end of The Kissing Booth 2, Elle is faced with a decision regarding her college plans—join long-distance boyfriend Noah at Harvard, or best friend Lee at Berkeley.
The Kissing Booth 3 will likely diverge from Beth Reekles' book series, which was the basis for the first two movies, as there isn't a third novel. The movie will hit Netflix in 2021.
