Based on the book The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance by Beth Reekles, the second film finds Shelly ‘Elle’ Evans with a bit of a bumpy year ahead after a great summer with boyfriend Noah (Jacob Elordi). With Noah overseas after being accepted into Harvard, Elle enters her high school senior year navigating a long-distance relationship, deciding on what college she wants to apply to, and dealing with the complications that arise with the arrival of a handsome new guy at school, Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez). And yes, there’s another kissing booth for charity on the horizon.

The Kissing Booth writer and director Vince Marcello returns at the helm for this follow-up, co-writing the screenplay with Jay S. Arnold. Also starring Joel Courtney, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, and Molly Ringwald, The Kissing Booth 2 will be streaming on Netflix from July 24th.

Official synopsis for The Kissing Booth 2:

Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi).

She’ll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs. Director and screenwriter Vince Marcello returns for The Kissing Booth sequel, based on the “The Kissing Booth” books by Beth Reekles.
