Today, Cassandra Clare has announced through her Twitter page that she is working on a new trilogy for her Shadowhunter fans. This is good news for fans that have liked The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices as both series are either finished or will be finishing soon.

Clare Tweeted about the announcement of Walker Books buying the new series which was already rumored to be true on Goodreads.

The new trilogy, called The Last Hours, will follow Will’s and Tessa’s children, James and Lucie and a few others in 1903 as the fight against the demons in an Edwardian time. Clare explains that the inspirations for the new series comes from Charles Dickenson’s The Great Expectations.

Some other key points to pull from the posting is that there is going to be three books: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, Chain of Iron. She has no schedule set for the books, but considering that she has this much information set, it's likely that she has at least a rough draft for Chain of Thorns done.

Clare has a busy schedule ahead of her. Including this new series, she will be releasing nine books in the next few years, which include the final book in The Mortal Instruments, City of Heavenly Fire, and introductions into three new series: Magisterium, The Last Hours, and The Dark Artifices.

The Iron Trial, the first book in the Magisterium series, is set to come out September 14th, while Chain of Thorns (first book in The Last Hours) and Lady Midnight (first book in The Dark Artifices) have a 2015 publication date.
