New novel from ‘Da Vinci Code’ author Dan Brown due next year

Author who wrote 'Da Vinci Code' to release new novel

Fans of "The Da Vinci Code" and "Inferno" could be in for a treat next year, as bestselling author Dan Brown is scheduled to release a new novel featuring Harvard "symbologist" Robert Langdon making yet another "earth-shaking discovery."

Little is known about the new novel beyond its title — "Origin" — and that it is slated for release in September 2017. The book's publishers — Doubleday in the U.S. and Penguin Random House's Transworld in the U.K. — said the book will feature Langdon at "the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions, and the earth-shaking discovery that will answer them."

There are more 200 million copies of Brown's previous novels -- which include "The Lost Symbol," "Angels and Demons," and "Digital Fortress" -- in print worldwide and his works have been translated into 56 languages, Penguin Random House said in a release.

"Origin" will be released simultaneously in the U.S., Canada and the U.K on September 26, 2017.
