Maggie Stiefvater announced that she had outlined a plan for the trilogy in August 2016. The trilogy is set to introduce new characters and themes. It will be focused on Ronan, but will feature different point of views, like in The Raven Cycle. It will not, include the character of Joseph Kavinsky, nor will it include a romance between Gansey and Henry. Adam and Ronan will also not break up.
