PHOENIX – The Hunger Games trilogy isn’t over. The best-selling author, Suzanne Collins announces her prequel novel is set to release in May 2020. The story takes place 64 years before the original series.

statement to the Associated Press released by Collins said: “With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival. The reconstruction period 10 years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days — as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet — provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.”

And if you’re wondering whether this prequel will get a movie of its own… all signs point to YES. The studio chairman of Lionsgate — home of The Hunger Games movie franchise — released a statement on Monday celebrating the news and hinting at the possibility of turning the novel into a film.

Here’s to hoping we don’t have to volunteer as tribute to be in the prequel!
