Writer coy over suggestions she could return to vampire franchise in future

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has refused to rule out writing further books in the series in the future.

The forthcoming instalment in the franchise, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, has long been thought to be the final chapter in the popular vampire saga but, according to RTE, she admitted at a press conference for the film that she could be tempted to continue the series at a later date.

Asked about the possibility of writing more novels in the Twilight universe in the future, she said: “I wouldn’t say no absolutely. I’m not going to do it today, but I don’t know how I’m going to feel in five years.”

She went on to tease: “I planned out where it would go for a couple more books. There are other characters who I think would have a lot of voice in those coming stories . . . Maybe someday, I’ll write it out just for myself. We’ll see.”

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 gets its UK premiere on November 14 before opening in cinemas on November 16. Last month, it was reported that the makers of Twilight are already hatching plans for a film or TV spin-off. This would not feature Pattinson and Stewart, but “merely [be] set in the same world as the one in the movies”.
