Untitled Book 6

On 25th April 2020, J.K. Rowling revealed on Twitter that she was working on the sixth novel in the series. She tweeted that she was writing a scene with Strike sat in a crowded London bar in 2015.

The fifth novel, Troubled Blood, will be set late 2013, possibly early 2014, which means if the sixth book is set in 2015, it will take place approximately a whole year after the events in book five.
