'Midnight Sun' has finally been released and now, 'Twilight' author Stephenie Meyer has started working on two more books after it's enormous success!

Midnight Sun has seen enormous success since its August release, and now, its author, Stephenie Meyer, has confirmed she's has plans for two more books much to the delight of millions of fans around the world.

New Twilight Book 'Midnight Sun' Announced From Edward's Perspective

In an online event with Books-A-Million, she said:

"There are two more books I think in the world that I want to write. I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there. I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new."

Twilight fans all over the world are celebrating after waiting 12 years for another instalment of the vampire series, with the film's director, Catherine Hardwicke, even speaking about the potential for another film.

ET spoke to the 64-year-old director, who said another film "Would be fun. It would be fascinating."

However, Catherine admitted making it from Edward's perspective would be 'difficult' and suggested another instalment would be 'another film'.

"Rob is Batman now... and Kristen is in a million beautiful projects," she said. "Who knows what would happen."

Midnight Sun lets readers rediscover Bella and Edward's epic love story from the Vampire's side of the story.

Will there be another Twilight movie because of Midnight Sun?

The Twilight saga was quickly picked up by Summit entertainment and turned into one of the biggest film franchises of all time starring Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart as Bella.

They released five films, being one of the first franchises after Harry Potter to split the final book, Breaking Dawn, into to movies, thanks to the audiences insatiable appetite for the series.

So, the question on everyone's lips will be whether Midnight Sun will eventually turn into a film, to which we saw, we aren't sure yet.

As the plot is technically the same, just told from another perspective, we don't see how they could make another film out of it, and getting the A-lister cast back together might be more difficult said than done.

It's widely known and joked about how much R-Pattz disliked the film series and the obsessive fan culture it spawned, and he's pretty wrapped up in being the new Batman right now.

When can I buy Midnight Sun?

Midnight Sun is available to buy now, dropping on August 4th, with many fans having pre-ordered the book to get reading ASAP.

Speaking on Good Morning America, Stephenie acknowledged the pandemic is weird timing (we think it's perfect timing TBH) but she can't make fans wait any longer.

She said: “It’s a crazy time right now and I wasn’t sure it was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so so long it didn’t seem right to make you wait any more."

What's Midnight Sun about?

The book will trace the infamous love story between Bella and Edward, but rather than being from Bella's perspective as the original series is, this time, it's Edward's turn!

From hanging out with his vegetarian vampire family, to how he was turned into a vampire all those years ago, and his intense dislike for Jacob, there's endless things people want to know about from his side of the story.

Ever the mysterious type, and a vampire of few words, fans are over the moon to be having an insight into his brain from the moment he encounters her right up to the end, which, we won't spoil but seriously, where have you been if you don't know how it ends!?

Are the Twilight characters in Midnight Sun?

All the major Twilight characters will all definitely be in the novel, but probably in a different capacity, such as Bella's friends and family, however, we are wondering if we'll be introduced to any newbies from before their love story started.
