Netflix Reveals To All the Boys and Kissing Booth Franchises to End in 2021, Announces 71-Film Slate

The streaming service will release at least one new film a week throughout the year.

Netflix’s romantic comedy franchises “The Kissing Booth” and “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” are officially coming to an end.

While releasing their impressive 71-film slate on Tuesday, Netflix confirmed the popular YA rom-com movie franchises will each be concluding with a third and final film, which will be released in 2021.

Following the events of the second film, “The Kissing Booth 3” will see Elle Evans (Joey King), who, in the summer before college, must decide if she will attend Harvard, where her boyfriend Noah (Jacob Elordi), attends or join her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney) at UC Berkeley.

Meanwhile, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: Always and Forever, Lara Jean” will follow Lara Jean (Lana Condor) as she prepares for her life beyond high school. However, after she goes on two life-changing trips, Lara will find herself reimagining what her life with her family, friends and Peter (Noah Centineo) will look like after graduation.

To coincide with the announcement of their 2021 film slate, Netflix also dropped a star-filled preview, teasing some of the flicks that will be coming to the small screen throughout the year.

At one point during the clip, Joey King appeared on the screen, telling viewers: “I loved seeing an incredible story come to an end,” before Lana Condor jumped in, saying, “Hey, that’s what I was going to say!”

Noah Centineo then chimed in. “Whoa, whoa! We’re not gonna give away the ending right now, are we?” he asked, to which King and Condor replied, “Definitely not!”

While Netflix has yet to officially announce the release dates for the two films, “To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean” will reportedly come out next month.

The third and final installments of the rom-com trilogies are among a whopping 71 Netflix original movies — which include a wide range of genres — that will be released on the streaming giant this year, with at least one new film dropping every week.

Some of Netflix’s highly-anticipated 2021 releases include the Western “The Harder They Fall” starring Regina King, Idris Elba and Jonathan Majors; Zack Snyder’s zombie flick “Army of the Dead, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical “Tick…tick…Boom”; the boxing drama “Bruised,” which marks Halle Berry’s directorial debut; and “Red Notice,” the comedy-thriller starring Gal Gadot, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.

In addition, the streaming giant will be releasing Adam McKay’s “Don’t Look Up” in 2021, a film that stars a giant A-list ensemble, including Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothee Chalamet, Meryl Streep and Ariana Grande.
