While we don’t have an exact release date, we do know that The Kissing Booth 3 will arrive in 2021 on Netflix.
The first Kissing Booth movie arrived on May 11, 2018 and the sequel on July 24, 2020, so it’s a shorter wait for fans.

So that’s Joey King as Elle Evans, Jacob Elordi as Noah Flynn and Meganne Young as Rachel back in the role, as well as Molly Ringwald as Noah and Lee’s mother Sara and Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Noah’s Harvard friend Chloe.
As we discovered in the sequel, Chloe has no romantic intentions with Noah and the whole earring was just a misunderstanding.
Taylor Perez will also be back as Marco and he’s likely to cause some trouble for Elle and Noah as he still holds feelings for Elle. At graduation, his friend is seen telling him that Elle isn’t worth it, only for Marco to respond when his friend has gone: “Yes, she is.”
The cast had already cheekily hinted at a third movie as King revealed before the sequel was released
“Me and the cast have been talking and we want that so bad and we’re kind of relying on the fans to help us out. They loved the first one so much and they’re the reason that we got a sequel,” she explained.
“So in the event that they love this one and they make it known to the world and to Netflix, our fingers are crossed that Netflix will give us a third film since that is the thing that we need actually gravely.”
This was clearly astute ploy, since Netflix didn’t have to realize that the spin-off was a hit before green-lighting the third film. Which is acceptable, given that a lot of the cast needed to return to the story.
Perez affirmed that he needs the third film to give “equity for Marco” as far as his romance of Elle, however Elordi is immovably in camp Noah, obviously, saying:
“I have an inclination that on the off chance that you get told no, you should take the, no, you know? Take the L man, surrender. Like, disregard her, you know?”
The Kissing Booth 3 plot
If the sequel’s ending didn’t make it clear, the third movie’s synopsis confirms that it’ll revolve around Elle’s major decision:
“It’s the late spring before Elle heads to school, and she has a mystery choice to make. She has been acknowledged into Harvard, where beau Noah is registering, and furthermore Berkeley, where her BFF Lee is going. Which way would it be a good idea for her to pick?”
In any case, where will she pick? Elle figured out how to fix things up with Lee in the wake of deceiving him about applying somewhere else, however can her relationship with Noah endure on the off chance that she doesn’t go to Harvard?
Talking about the cliffhanger ending, Joey King said: “She’s really good at getting herself into a pickle, that’s for sure…
“Elle has a lot of figuring out to do, and she figures out a lot during this movie. And then, in the end, she gives herself even more figuring out to do, which is crazy. We don’t know what’s going to happen… I don’t know why she does that.”
Elordi added: “She’s scared to tell either of them because it’s such a difficult decision. She probably feels a lot of pressure from both parties, which is just unfortunate.”
There is a Kissing Booth novella written by Beth Reekles called, Road trip but unfortunately for fans, it takes place during the timeline of the sequel, so there are no answers to be found there.
