Yes, there will be a Spy School 8

Hi everyone –

I am writing this post because the most common question I get is: ‘Is there going to be a Spy School 8?’  (Or sometimes, ‘Is Spy School 7 going to be the last book in the series?’)

The answer is: YES.

It will come out some time in fall 2020.  I do not know anything more specific than that./

For future reference: I list upcoming titles on the right hand side of EVERY SINGLE PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE.  Somehow, this seems to escape about 50% of the people who visit.  So please, please, please, if you’re interested to know if and when a book is coming out, check that area before writing to me to ask.

I am going to answer a few other very frequent questions I get about this book.

Can you tell me what is going to happen in SS8?


Really?  You can’t just tell me?  I promise not to tell anyone else.

Doesn’t matter.  I’m still not ready to share any information yet.

Why not?

Because the less you know about a book before you read it, the more fun it is to read.  And if I share information a year before the book comes out, you’re just going to have more questions.  In the meantime, there are plenty of other great books out there for you to read.

Can you at least tell me what the title is going to be?

No, but I will post that when I know it.

Are there going to be other books in the series after SS8?


How many books will there be in the series?

I don’t know.

Really?  Because JK Rowling knew there were going to be seven books in Harry Potter before she finished writing it.

Feel free to ask JK Rowling how she knew that the next time you see her.

When do you think you will post an update about SS8?

I don’t know.  Don’t expect anything until at least six months before it comes out.

In the meantime, feel free to enjoy Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation when it comes out on September 17.

    It is very possible that you have found a trove of fan fiction.

    If you want to know the books I have actually written, then look at my web site.

    Yo, I’m actually the same guy as 3 other aliases!
    It would be awesome.
    I’m not going to hide my evil plan.
    P.S Yeah, I am a fan of PewDiePie
    P.P.S. I see no point in not revealing my plan. It’s just for fun
    P.P.P.S. I’m not evil
    P.P.P.P.S. you know, I have changed a writing style. You can never figure it out
    P.P.P.P.P.S. but I will have many aliases. I could your friend, or your teacher.
    P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I probably won’t be your teacher though
    P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S. If you can figure out my original name, then you’re a genius
    P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S. Have you ever seen so many P.S’s?
    P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S. You probably have
    my name is P.S, the name “BroFist” was fake.

  3. Yo bro sgggsos

  4. BOE or ZEN people –
    Erica did start to appreciate friends in SSBI. So she thawed out.
    P.S. Where’s Jessica? Maybe he ends up with Jessica. I mean, Jessica didn’t become evil, and Ben still might have a thing for Jessica. #Jen or Jessica
    I ship Berica more though
    Erica might be tough on the outside, but she is fragile on the inside, so she’ll need Ben to get over her coldness. I mean it’s not perfect but good things will come along.

  5. dude, I ship ZEN cause he always says why she is awesome, and erica is like 3 years older. when he is 13 shes 16. she has to drive him around. lol

  6. I ship Zen because although someone could say that Ben and Erica know each other better Zoe and Ben were best friends at school and talked there a lot, I think, whereas Erica is kinda cold and doesn’t really say much there. Her interactions with Ben are mainly through missions, which makes people seem to think that Berica’s foundations are more set, because the mission is obviously the main part of the book and people focus more on that. Plus Erica is kinda manipulative and also doesn’t fully believe in relationships yet. Also, I liked the tension between Zoe and Ben in SSGS and SSBI, and it would drive me a little nuts if it wasn’t resolved.

  7. Stuart –
    We had to write a book report for class and I wrote mine about ss book 1 and I wrote 3 pages and the teacher pointed mine out to the class and I said that everyone needed to read the ss series because it is the one of the best series I have ever read.

  8. Sydney –

    Thanks for promoting the books! And you must have written a great report for the teacher to single it out.

  9. To be honest I dpnt like how Erica just suddenly switched from ben to mike in ssss in the beginning.. and Zoe has been with ben all along. So of course, I vote for..

  10. Go Boe-
    Just to be clear Erica didn’t actually like mike and if you read the entire series Ben asks Erica if she liked mike and she said something like , “That Mike? Why would I like him.”

  11. Stuart-
    I am a huge fan of your books!
    But I’m wondering if Ben is going to end up with Erica, or Zoe. It’s killing me not knowing. Please reply, and thank you for making these wonderful books!

  12. Erica Hale’s Daughter….

    First of all, given your name, I have to assume that you are writing from the future and thus know who Ben (and also Erica) has ended up with.

    So you will understand that I want to keep that information classified.

  13. Dear Mr. Gibbs, I can’t wait for spy school 8 and 9 to come out. I love the series so much that it is my number 1 favorite series. I am just wandering when SS8 is coming out now since we are all at home so maybe plans have changed. I would just like a shoutout. Thatnk you

  14. Stu,a quick question here.Is SS going to have an end?im not saying i want it to finish so soon.but every story has an end.Sooo?

  15. Leif Edoff –

    The release date of SS8 has not changed. If anything, it will be delayed due to the pandemic, not moved up. (Although I hope that is not the case.)

  16. Bookworm –

    No. SS will not end. I am planning to stop the story in midsentence in a future book and thus enrage all of my readers.

    OK, in all seriousness, yes, it will end at some point.

  17. Mr. Gibbs-
    Which Spy School book do you like the most? Which did you enjoy writing the most?
    I really enjoy all of your books!

    I don’t have a favorite of my Spy School books as i worked very hard on all of them. British Invasion might have been the most fun to research, though.

  19. I loved reading your british invasion spy school series book, and I just wanted to say that the ending was spectacular!
