Hunger Games' prequel novel to be out in 2020

Hunger Games 2020

Washington D.C. : Almost a decade after wrapping up 'The Hunger Games', American TV writer and author Suzanne Collins is bringing fans back to Panem. A prequel of the famous book series, set around 64 years before the beginning of the trilogy is releasing next year, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

The yet-untitled novel is scheduled to come out on May 19, 2020. Collins said in a statement on Monday that she would go back to the years following the Dark Days, the failed rebellion in Panem. The author set the 'Hunger Games' books in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, where people must fight and kill each other on live television.

"With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are and what we perceive is required for our survival," she said. The book is set before the lifetime of 'Hunger Games' heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence in the billion-dollar movie franchise. Rest of the details including the new book's contents and featured characters are being kept under wraps. ANI
