The next entry in Brown's series of thrillers featuring Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, Origin will publish in the U.S. and Canada on September 26, 2017, as a hardcover from Doubleday. It will also be available as an e-book and audiobook from Penguin Random House Audio. Transworld Publishers will publish the novel simultaneously in the U.K., and Vintage Espanol will publish a U.S. Spanish language edition.
Origin, Doubleday said, follows Langdon "into the dangerous intersection of humankind’s two most enduring questions, and the earth-shaking discovery that will answer them." The novel, the imprint added, will feature the signature themes from Brown's series, including symbology, science, religion, history, art, and architecture.
Jason Kaufman, v-p and executive editor at Doubleday, will edit the novel.
According to Doubelday, there are over 200 million copies of Brown's books in print worldwide.
