Mr. Grey will see you now—well, in June, that is. The third and final installment of Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian—the spinoff series of the original trilogy, which follows Ana and Christian's love story from the perspective of Mr. Grey (a.k.a. Christian)—will be dropping June 1, 2021.
E.L. James, the British author responsible for the insanely successful series-turned-blockbuster-hit, shared the release date of the final installment to her Instagram over the weekend. "SAVE THE DATE!! Freed (Fifty Shades Freed as told by Christian) will be with you in North America and the UK on June 1, 2021," she wrote.
We see the couple finally tie the knot in Fifty Shades Freed, which means we're getting a second (!!) wedding in this new book—third if you're counting Dakota Johnson and Jamie Doran's portrayal of the nuptials during the movie adaptation.
James revealed that the book's release has been a long time coming. "This story has been a labor of love, one that my readers have been eagerly awaiting," she said in a press release on Sunday. "For me, just as for Anastasia Steele, Christian is a challenging, infuriating, and endlessly fascinating character. Living in his head is exhausting, but I got to explore aspects of his life in Freed that we only glimpsed in the original trilogy, and to follow his emotional growth in response to Ana's love and compassion."
The original Fifty Shades books were a huge hit, sitting atop The New York Times bestseller list for 133 consecutive weeks, according to People—before the books were turned into a steamy, mega-successful film series starring Johnson and Doran! Freed: Fifty Shades Freed as Told by Christian is available for preorder now.
