After what feels like one million, trillion, gazillion years, Netflix has finally blessed us with the trailer for The Kissing Booth 3, the final instalment in the franchise. And I’m happy to report that it looks like total brain ice cream, as in just a fuck-tonne of sugary sweetness with minimal drama. LOVE to see it.

Film #3 was shot at the same time as the second movie at the end of 2019, which meant production was mostly unaffected by the pandemic that shut down most of Hollywood last year.

The final movie in the much adored teen trilogy picks up during the summer before Elle (Joey King) heads to college, and she’s facing the hardest decision of her life.

Will she a) move across the country with her hooooot boyfriend Noah (my husband Jacob Elordi), or b) fulfil her lifelong promise to go to college with her bestie Lee (Joel Courtney).

Dun, dun, duuun. 

And yes, the college in question is Berkeley because only the top, top, top schools (Yale, Harvard, Stanford) exists in these perfect worlds.

Also, guess who conveniently makes a return to help Elle figure out what she wants? Marco Valentin Peña, of course, played by the handsome Taylor Zakhar Perez. Will Elle break his heart again? Look, probably.

The Kissing Booth 3 premieres August 11 on Netflix.

Ahhh, there’s nothing quite like a bucket list movie set on a beach with a Jacob Elordi in it to make me forget about my troubles in life.

You can find the first two movies in The Kissing Booth franchise on Netflix now.

And, if the Kissing Booth isn’t enough for you then check out this yarn I slapped together during Melbourne’s lockdown last year. I basically ranked 46 of Netflix’s original rom-coms from the very worst to the very best.

I had nothing else to do.
