Yesterday, Joey King attended the People’s Choice Awards, where she was awarded Best Comedy Star for her role in Netflix’s The Kissing Booth 2—which, FYI, also won best Comedy Movie of 2020! Accepting her award, King wore a gorgeous red strapless peplum dress with pleats and revealed when we can expect to see the films sequel.
“I really want to thank all the people that voted,” she began, per JustJared. “It’s so awesome that you guys voted for me.”
“This year has been so weird. I’m not going to be the first person to say that tonight on this stage, but the fact that our movie and my character brought some laughter to everybody at home, that makes me smile. That makes me feel so good. That makes me feel so happy.”
“I told myself that if I won, I would share a very exciting piece of news with everybody, so I want to tell you that Kissing Booth 3, our final instalment, is going to be released in summer 2021,” she revealed. "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."
