Where to Watch
The Kissing Booth is a movie available for streaming on Netflix. This film is a Netflix original, and therefore due to the streaming rights, the movie will not be available to watch or stream on other OTT platforms. Due to the growing competition, Netflix would keep as many movies as their exclusive to fight their competition and have more audience. The movie can not be purchased either because that would eventually lead to the loss of audience from Netflix.
Can we Expect a Sequel?
After the end of the third movie, The Kissing Booth, season four seems to be unlikely and after the actress of the three films, Joey King, called the third movie “and end of an era.” However, these are her statements and not from the creators of the films because The Kissing Booth trilogy has grown a very strong fan base, and the third sequel of the movie has been on the most-watched lists on Netflix since August 11, 2021.
The fans of the show definitely want more of the movie, and the vague and unclear ending of the movie might lead to a fourth sequel of the fan-favorite movie. The third movie ends with an epilogue set in six years in the future where Elle and Noah met for the first time in years they broke up before college. As the picture came to an end, the couple had flickers of their old love as they went on for a motorcycle ride.
This ending has made the fans come up with their own theories and how the story would take place in the next phase of their lives. However, despite all the crazy theories formulated by the fans or the rumors circulating the internet, Netflix has not yet confirmed the fourth sequel of the movie or some other form of continuation, such as a TV series.
Joey King told the Nerds of Colour, “It’s very moving to say goodbye to a character you’ve been playing for this many years, and also playing this personality through such significant moments in my life.” The cast members of The Kissing Booth gave similar statements in Vanity Fair and Entertainment Tonight. An overall, we never know about a sequel of the movie as there is a massive fan following of the movie all over the globe, and the fans can expect a sequel or announcement about the movie in a few years.
