The first The Kissing Booth, which came out in May 2018, was based on the Beth Reekles self-published coming-of-age novel. The film, directed and adapted by Vince Marcello, became Netflix''s most rewatched movie in 2018.
It followed Elle (King), a teenager whose romance with high school senior and bad boy Noah (Elordi) puts her lifelong friendship with Noah's younger brother, Lee (Courtney), at risk.
The sequel picked up with Noah at Harvard and Elle in her senior year of high school.
The film sees Elle taking care of a long-distance relationship, enrolling into her dream college with best friend Lee, and a close friendship with a good-looking new classmate Marco (Perez). But as Noah becomes close to a college girl (Richardson-Sellers), it is a test of trust for the couple.
