Stephen King just said he thinks another Dark Tower book ‘will happen’

October 9th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Be it the movie (here) or the possible TV series (here), Stephen King’s Dark Tower series is on the tip of many peoples’ tongues.

And now, eight books in, we can start talking about the series as books again, because King just said there’s (at least) one more book likely to happen.

The writer, currently promoting Sleeping Beauties, a new book he co-wrote with his son, Owen, was asked if there was any chance of just one more tale set in the universe of Roland of Gilead and his Ka-tet… and King replied: “Yes, I think that might happen.”

The video of the writer’s reply is posted below but we’re confident from his response that he knows something we don’t… get ready guys, we think Roland is coming back sooner rather than later.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
