‘The Kissing Booth 3’ Plot
The Kissing Booth 2 left Elle with a big decision about her future, so the final movie will pick up with her facing her choices. Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s the summer before Elle heads to college, and she has a secret decision to make. She has been accepted into Harvard, where boyfriend Noah is matriculating, and also Berkeley, where her BFF Lee is headed. Which path should she choose?
The first two Kissing Booth movies are based on the novels by Beth Reekles. But unfortunately for any fans who are hoping to look to the book for hints about The Kissing Booth 3, there is no third book yet. Instead, according to Reekles, The Kissing Booth 3: One Last Time will be released at the same time as the movie. In an Instagram post, Reekles wrote, “I was able to work closely with Netflix for TKB3 and though I can’t say anything yet on the storyline (sorry!) I will tell you… it’s gonna be totally awesome. I really hope you guys love it, too.”
The good news is that the wait for plot details won’t be too long. By next summer, Elle’s fate will be revealed.
