OK, so we’ve been waiting many years for book 3 to release, and it’s not showing any immediate signs of releasing anytime soon, so by the time Rothfuss gets to completing additional novels we could be waiting possibly decades. Despite a possible long wait, the writer told fans that his upcoming conclusion novel of The Kingkiller Chronicle is actually a prologue and sets up over stories to come after. 

As reported by Tor, Rothfuss confirmed that book 3 will not be the complete ending. “Book 3 closes this arc of story.” He said.  “Book 3 will not be the final book set in this world. Big distinction there!”

The fantasy author also spoke to Newsweek more recently, where he claimed that he’s tricked all fans of his novels, saying, “I am an author who has tricked you into reading a trilogy that is a million-word prologue.”

Aside from the novels, last year Lionsgate acquired the rights to the fantasy franchise and have plans to produce a series of movies and a TV show as well as a game. Wee already know that the movies will be directed by Evil Dead director Sam Raimi and will be produced by none other that Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Lionsgate  with The Kingkiller Chronicle are not the only network looking to fill the huge fantasy gap when Game of Thrones sadly leaves us in 2019, with Netflix having a TV series of The Witcher in development. Amazon are bringing Lord of the Rings back in the form of a TV series as well as another adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark TowerIt’s certain that in the coming years there will be no shortage of quality fantasy!

Do you have any theories of how The Kingkiller Chronicle might end?
