In a live YouTube event on Sunday, the cast shared that they actually secret completed filming on the third installment prior to the global pandemic, having shot “two and three at the exact same time,” according to Joel Courtney, and King calling it tricky as there would be days in which they’d be filming scenes from both films.

Based on the author Beth Reekles’ novel of the same name, the sequel continues to follow Elle, who is now a high school senior. With college decisions looming, Elle juggles a long-distance relationship with her dreamy boyfriend Noah, college applications with her best friend Lee, and a new friendship with a handsome classmate that could change everything.
