It’s been nine years (!!!) since Robert Pattinson first appeared on screen as the hot-but-moody vampire, Edward Cullen, in Twilight. Since Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part II ended the series in 2012 — the fifth movie in the Twilight saga — fans have been wishing and hoping for something, anything, that will bring the franchise back to life.

Well, Twilight fans, you’re in luck! In a recent interview with Yahoo, Robert was asked if he would ever go back to Forks, Washington. In fact, during the interview, Robert expressed an interest in doing a potential spinoff, which they jokingly titled Edward: Homecoming. His response?
“I mean, I’m always kind of curious. Anything where there’s a mass audience—or seemingly an audience for it—I always like the idea of subverting people’s expectations,” he said. “So there could be some radical way of doing it, which could be quite fun. It’s always difficult when there’s no source material. But, yeah, I’m always curious.”
Also in the interview, Robert touched on the current status of his Twilight fan base. “It’s definitely calmed down in terms of my everyday life, but mainly because I spend more time in London, which is totally different,” he said. “I guess I’ve never really acknowledged what the fan base is, or even if I have one [Laughs].”

Well, we’re pretty sure that if another Twilight movie happens, then Robert will definitely see just how committed and major his fan base has always been.
It’s definitely a possibility. Not only did Kristen “Bella” Stewart say in 2015 that she would be interested in a reboot of the film series, but in September, Patrick Wachsberger, co-chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, said that resurrecting the story is “a possibility. Not a certainty but it’s a possibility. It’s about Stephenie [Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we’re here for her.”
We’re here for her — and Edward — too.
