  • It's been five years since she released her final Twilight novel, but Stephanie Meyer has revealed that we may not have heard the last of Edward and Bella Cullen...

    Stephanie Meyer made us say goodbye to Edward and Bella Cullen back in 2008 when she finished her final novel in the Twilight saga – but the author has revealed she plans to give us a sneak peek at the famous pair’s future in a new blog post.

    Stephanie was talking to Variety yesterday, when she was questioned on the vampire franchise. Though she didn’t speak too highly of Twilight and its follow-ups, she did hint that she plans to share one final update on the characters in a ‘few paragraphs’.

    She said: ‘I get further away [from Twilight] every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.’

    But when asked the controversial question on whether she would ever return to writing about Twilight, she added: ‘What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth.’

    Don’t get us wrong, we’re pretty devastated that Stephanie won’t be writing another Twilight novel, but there’s no reason we can’t get excited about three paragraphs. And who could possibly die? Jacob? Edward? Bella?

    Stephanie released the first chapter of a novel entitled ‘Midnight Sun’ on her blog back in 2008. The author shared the first draft on a PDF document on, which told the story of Twilight, but from Edward Cullen’s point of view. It’s likely she’ll share paragraphs about Edward and Bella’s future in a similar manner.

    Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will no doubt sleep easy knowing they won’t have to play Edward and Bella again. Stephanie admitted earlier this year that she felt ‘guilty’ about the fame she’d created for Rob and Kristen, telling The Times: ‘I just don’t think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either.

    ‘At the same time – and this is where the guilt comes from – it’s created this nice, peaceful place for me. They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about. If they had the choice, I’ve no idea if they’d even do Twilight again. I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.’

    Just please don’t kill off Edward. We don’t think our hearts could take it.
