Netflix’s The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys franchises will be ending this year.
When the streaming platform announced its 2021 movie slate, they confirmed that each of the franchise’s third movies would be the last.
Both rom-com trilogies have done really well on Netflix. When the original The Kissing Booth and The Kissing Booth 2 were released they were among the most-watched films in the country. The same went for the first To All the Boys film, which Netflix called one of the “most viewed original films ever with strong repeat viewing”.
The Kissing Booth franchise follows Elle Evans (Joey King) and Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney) and the drama that takes place after Elle falls for Lee’s brother, Noah (Jacob Elordi). In the second film, Elle and Noah are dating and their relationship is a bit rocky after Noah leaves for Harvard and Elle meets a new potential love interest played by Taylor Zakhar Perez. In The Kissing Booth 3 Elle will have to decide if she’ll attend Harvard and join Noah or join Lee at UC Berkeley.
The To All the Boys franchise centers on Laura Jean Covey (Lana Condor) whose secret letters end up in her crushes’ hands. She plans a faux relationship with one of the crushes, Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), that turns into real feelings. The second film follows Lara Jean and Peter’s relationship after one of her other crushes, John Ambrose McClaren (Jordan Fisher), comes into the equation. She must decide which one she wants to be with. The third film will have Lara Jean going on two life-changing trips that will make her question what her life after graduation looks like.
The films haven’t been given a release date yet.
