The Hunger Games was one of the most popular franchise at the time, and now we're getting a taste of what life was like before The Games...
Suzanne Collins is bringing back The Hunger Games, with the author announcing a new prequel novel that takes place 64 years before the events of the first book in the series, set for release on May 19th, 2020.
Taking to Instagram, the official The Hunger Games account captioned the announcement: "Exciting news, Hunger Games fans: A prequel novel set 64 years before the events of The Hunger Games is set to publish in May 2020!
On returning to the world of The Hunger Games, author Suzanne 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 ten 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.”
We can't wait to see what the new novel will have in store for our favourite characters!
