If you're like me and thought the end of No Time To Die was a sadistic gut punch from Eon that's best forgotten, know that we might have some news coming soon that gives hope James Bond Will Return. 

Over the past few days author Anthony Horowitz has teased on Twitter that the title of his third Bond novel "will be revealed soon" and that it is "five words" in length.

Ultimate BONDCAST Part 3 (NO TIME TO DIE Ranking)

Back in 2017 I had the pleasure of participating in the ULTIMATE BONDCAST with fellow Bond fanatics Brad Hansen, Athena Stamos, Bob Mitsch and Ryan Provencher, in which we individually ranked and debated which James Bond films we think are the best (and worst). Now we've returned to place No Time to Die in our rankings and discuss any updates. This was once again great fun. Hope you enjoy!

New DOUBLE O trilogy by Kim Sherwood announced

Looks like we'll have two official novels to look forward to in 2022. In addition to Anthony Horowitz's third James Bond novel (due in May), Ian Fleming Publications announced today the first in a new trilogy of books by Kim Sherwood. The books will be "set in the world of James Bond" and feature "a new raft a Double O agents for the 21st-century." The first book is due for release in September 2022.

James Bond is missing, presumed captured or even killed. All of Bond’s contemporaries are gone and a new generation of Double O agents has been recruited to replace them and battle a global threat. At the same time, M and Moneypenny are searching for a mole in MI6. Will the truth be uncovered in time—or is this the end of the Double O section?

Kim Sherwood says: "James Bond has been one of the enduring loves of my life since I first watched Pierce Brosnan dive from the dam in GoldenEye. I was soon hooked on Ian Fleming’s novels. As a teenager, I chose Fleming when my English teacher asked us to write about an author we admired—I still have the school report. Since then, I’ve dreamt of writing James Bond. It’s rare that dreams come true, and I am grateful to the Fleming family for this incredible opportunity. I feel honoured to be the first novelist to expand the Bond universe through the Double O sector, bringing new life to old favourites, and fresh characters to the canon. I couldn’t be more excited to introduce the world to my Double O agents."

Corinne Turner, Managing Director of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd, says: “In her first novel, Testament, Kim showed a rare gift for characterisation, time and place. She drew readers into a journey that unfolded in unexpected ways. These talents and her near-lifelong passion for Fleming and Bond make her the perfect choice for this exciting new extension of the 007 universe. I can’t wait for readers to see what she’s created.”

It should be noted that many media outlets are claiming Sherwood is the first woman to write for 007. But this isn't true. Samantha Weinberg wrote an excellent trilogy of Moneypenny Diaries novels between 2005 and 2008.

Kim Sherwood's first Double O section novel is already available for pre-order on
