“The Kissing Booth 3″ Release Date Confirmed at Netflix

Great news for everyone who loves The Kissing Booth — the release date has finally been announced.

In a summer movies trailer, Netflix detailed many exciting projects on the horizon, including a release date for Addison Rae’s forthcoming He’s All That remake (August 27!). They also included Zoom footage of The Kissing Booth stars Joey King and Joel Courtney watching a tiny snippet of their movie — featuring the pair jumping off a cliff into the ocean.

“My gosh dude that was so cool,” Joey exclaims. Joel agrees, “I got so excited, I ate 11 churros.” To which Joey responds with emphasis, ”Eight. 11.” Yep, that means the final installment of The Kissing Booth series (for now) will premiere on Netflix on August 11.

Joey had previously mentioned the film would be coming this summer, when accepting a People’s Choice Award for her role as Elle Evans. “I am so excited, I wish it was tomorrow! I really, really wish it was tomorrow! Thank you guys so much! Thank you for loving this movie, and loving this character as much as I do,” she said at the time.

The announcement comes along with a new photo, showing Jacob Elordi, Joey, Joel, and Meganne Young (Rachel) by the pool together. The movie will likely resolve the fundamental cliffhanger of the second movie: Where will Elle go to college?

“[The Kissing Booth 3] is the culmination of this coming of age story — not just for Elle, but for Noah and Lee, as well,” director Vince Marcello told Variety. “Although their paths are entwined, each has their own journey with a set of challenges that they need to overcome before closing the chapter of their lives that was adolescence and beginning their new journey into adulthood.”

Nailed It! Is Returning with Teams for Double the Fails — and Joey King Is a Contestant

Netflix’s Nailed It! is returning for another season of epic baking mishaps.

PEOPLE can exclusively unveil the first trailer for the new spin-off season of the Emmy-nominated baking series, Nailed It! Double Trouble, premiering March 26 on Netflix.

Hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres once again, the new season will feature a massive twist: For the first time ever, home bakers will pair up in teams of two to take a shot at recreating edible masterpieces for a $10,000 prize and the coveted “nailed it” trophy.

Among the contestants this season is actress Joey King, who will partner with one of her sisters as they attempt to beat out the other duos in the high-stakes competition.

Guest judges this season will include Andrea Savage, Ron Funches, Lil Rey Howery, Bobby Lee, Brian Posehn, A$AP Ferg.

“From best buds to brothers and sisters, these bakers are twice as bad,” Netflix’s logline for the new season reads. “This season, we go far and wide for inspiration, ranging from delicious baked treats inspired by Greek mythology to sugary desserts from dear old Grandma.”

Nailed It! premiered its first season in 2018 with solo bakers giving their best shot at creating some unforgettable desserts. There have been an additional three regular seasons of the show released, as well as two holiday-themed seasons.

The show has been nominated for three Emmy Awards, twice for outstanding competition program in 2019 and 2020 and once for outstanding host for Byer.
