Netflix is giving fans of “The Kissing Booth” a very sweet Valentine’s Day present: news of a sequel.
Yes, the “The Kissing Booth 2” is currently in production, with stars Joey King, Joel Courtney and Jacob Elordi all set to return for the follow-up to the streamer’s 2018 rom-com, Netflix announced on Thursday.
Debuting last May, “The Kissing Booth” is based on the Beth Reekles self-published coming-of-age novel that tells the story of a high school girl who is forced to confront her secret crush at a kissing booth.
“The Kissing Booth 2” will be directed by Vince Marcello with a screenplay by Marcello and Jay Arnold. Producers include Marcello, Michele Weisler, Andrew Cole-Bulgin, Edward Glauser. The film hails from Komixx Entertainment Inc.
The sequel is currently in production and will be released on Netflix. No premiere date has been set.
Netflix released a report of the 2018 original Netflix films that were the most rewatched by their viewers last December, and the streamer says nearly half of all the people who watched the teen romances “The Kissing Booth” and “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” ended up rewatching the films.
