Looks like there’s trouble in paradise when Elle Evans (Joey King) and Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi) return for Netflix’s The Kissing Booth 2

On July 24, the streaming service will drop the highly anticipated Kissing Booth sequel, which will pick up where the first film left off. But as expected, the couple has a few obstacles ahead as Noah begins a new journey at Harvard University. Now, can this romance survive the distance? The Kissing Booth 2 promo trailer has fans worried Elle and Noah may not end up together after all.

Elle and Noah finally got together at the end of The Kissing Booth — and it happened with the blessing of Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney). But even so, the couple only received a summer of bliss before Noah left for university. 

Now, The Kissing Booth 2 trailer presents a new challenge — can Elle and Noah’s long-distance relationship last? In the promo released on July 6, Elle reveals it’s been “exactly 27 days” since her summer with Noah ended and she’s about to start her first day of senior year. However, she’s worried her boyfriend will meet someone at Harvard.

Then the preview jumps to Noah seemingly flirting with another girl named Chloe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). And as the trailer progresses, Elle appears to lose trust in her boyfriend.

Meanwhile, Elle meets Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez) and his story seems to reflect Noah’s from the first film. Marco is the school’s latest hot commodity and Lee tells Elle to get him for the kissing booth. In the trailer, Marco declines and seems to spark something with Elle. Later, the two characters have a moment together on the beach.

At first, Marco questions Elle’s relationship with Noah. “Do you think you and Noah were meant to be together?” he says. In response, Elle says, “I always thought we were.” Then in another shot, Marco adds, “If I found someone smart, funny, and like the same stuff I like, I’d hold onto them.”

The Kissing Booth 2 promo trailer also offers another conflict Elle is dealing with during her senior year. For years, Elle and Lee have wanted to attend UC Berkeley because that’s where their mothers became BFFs. However, Noah wants his girlfriend to go to his university and Elle says she only applied to Tufts, Boston College, and Harvard. So naturally, when Lee finds out, he’s upset. 

But whether she’s dealing with Noah or Lee, Elle’s journey in The Kissing Booth 2 will hopefully prompt her to carve out her own path. And as a voiceover in the trailer suggests, Elle needs to ask herself if it’s worth changing her plans for someone else.

Fans react to ‘The Kissing Booth 2’ trailer

When Netflix dropped the Kissing Booth 2 trailer, fans rushed to social media to express their excitement.

“Can’t wait to see the movie,” a fan wrote on Instagram.

Meanwhile, other viewers started worrying about Elle and Noah, questioning whether or not the couple would stay together or break up in the sequel.

“I hope Elle and Noah stay together,” a fan wrote in response to the trailer. 

That said, some Kissing Booth fans are conflicted, but willing to give Marco a chance.

“I swear if Elle and Noah break because of this Marco I’m gonna be depressed,” a fan wrote on YouTube. “But then again I want her to be with Marco because he seems like a great guy.”

Whether or not Elle and Noah end up together in The Kissing Booth 2, it seems fans are ready for the ride. Though if you can’t wait another moment, just know the Netflix sequel is based on Beth Reekles’s book, The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance. But if you can hold on, the new film drops on July 24. So get ready.
