Joey King Says the Cast Wants to Return for Another Round The Kissing Booth 2 will be released on Netflix on Friday, July 24. But you might be up all night depending on where you live. Typically, the streaming platform drops new content at the same time — 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m. ET), as Netflix is based out of California. It's possible some TV shows and movies may be delayed. However, it's likely fans will be able to watch The Kissing Booth 2 around 3 a.m. ET on July 24. What 'The Kissing Booth 2' cast says about the sequel film Whenever viewers decide to tune into The Kissing Booth 2 on Netflix, the sequel's cast seems confident in the new film. "This sequel, if I may say so myself, I think is better than the first movie," King told The Hollywood Reporter in July 2020. "We wanted to give fans something to remember. Something that is even bigger and better than the movie that they fell in love with initially. Something that exceeded all expectations and still remained true to the absolute fun, loving, ridiculously silly nature of the first movie." She continued, "I just think that — not to toot our own horn — but I kind of think that we might have hit it out of the park or whatever." But does a better sequel necessarily mean The Kissing Booth 2 delivers a happily ever after? It depends on who you ask. "Why not? I think so," Elordi said when Entertainment Tonight asked whether Elle and Noah will be endgame. "I reckon, I would say so." Meanwhile, King cast her doubts, noting there will be obstacles ahead. "Just like Elle says in the trailer, she always thought they were [endgame]. But things change, things happen," King said. "I don't know where their story will take them. But I'm so excited that we get to see Elle and Noah in this movie. I think Noah and Elle are iconic and I think it's exciting for fans to be able to see them again." No matter what happens between Elle and Noah in The Kissing Booth 2, it seems fans will enjoy the ride starting July 24. So happy streaming. Check out Showbiz Cheat Sheet on Facebook!
