Now that it is official that The Kissing Booth 3 is definitely happening, cast-member of the film, Taylor Zakhar Perez, has revealed how challenging it was for him to keep matters about the third film secret while promoting the second film.
In a recent interview with Variety, Perez remarked, “It was the hardest thing. This was my first time really doing press for a film and I’m a very straight-up, authentic kind of guy. So when it comes to lying, straight-up lying, not even working around it, I was like, ‘Oh, my God, how do we do this?’ And we’re sworn to secrecy with Netflix, and I straight up just really had to lie. But I don’t know when it’s coming out. All I know is 2021.
According to various sources, the third installation of the Kissing Booth franchise has already been filmed. In that case, it could indeed be released in 2021 without additional delay.
