Ken Follett is heading back to Kingsbridge, England.
The author is penning a second sequel to his 1989 novel, The Pillars of the Earth, publisher Dutton tells USA TODAY. The book is so far untitled and has no announced publication date, and no plot details were released.
The Pillars of the Earth hit No. 3 and spent 61 weeks on USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list in 2007, after Oprah Winfrey chose it for her book club.
Pillars follows the building of a cathedral in an English town in the 12th century. It was adapted into an Emmy-nominated miniseries that aired on Starz in 2010.
The first Pillars sequel, World Without End, was published in 2007, and was set two centuries after the first book. It hit No. 8 on USA TODAY's best seller list.
Dutton also announced the acquisition to two other Follett novels, to be released after the Pillars sequel.
