You may be left wondering, “Wait, that’s it?” after watching the third instalment of Netflix’s The Kissing Booth franchise and immediately start looking for information about a potential fourth instalment.
The Kissing Booth 3 is the third and last film in Netflix’s teen romance franchise, so you may not discover anything.
Elle (Joey King), everyone’s favourite regular adolescent, just wants to chill out this summer before heading off to college.
The situation becomes more difficult, however, as she must decide between attending Harvard, where she could be with her boyfriend Noah (Jacob Elordi), and attending Berkeley, where she could be with her closest friend Lee (Joel Courtney).
We won’t give anything away, but the movie doesn’t quite live up to the promise of its title in the last moments. For a detailed dissection of that ending, check out Decider’s The Kissing Booth 3 finale explained.
There will probably be a void in the hearts of the fans. The question is, will they succeed in getting what they want? What we know thus far regarding a potential sequel to The Kissing Booth is as follows.
Is KISSING BOOTH 4 in the Works?
Most likely, no. As the third and final film in the Kissing Booth series, 2020’s Vanity Fair featured an interview with Noah’s actor, Jacob Elordi, in which he was adamant that he would not return for a fourth movie. That, my friend, is the final kiss he will ever give you.
There’s also the problem of a dearth of primary sources. The Kissing Booth, a Netflix original series, is adapted on Beth Reekles’s novels of the same name. With the completion of The Kissing Booth 3: One Last Time, Reekles concluded her trilogy.
Reekles announced on YouTube that she would not be penning a fourth instalment of The Kissing Booth because “it was time to say goodbye to them.”
Never say never, as Justin Bieber famously stated, even if it seems improbable. The conclusion of Kissing Booth 3 doesn’t fully resolve the story arc between Elle and Noah, suggesting that it could go on.
Perhaps Netflix will want to keep the momentum going because the movies have been so successful. All you can do for the time being is watch the first three films repeatedly. Now it’s time to start kissing!
