RICHARD Osman has revealed his secret 'new series' since leaving Pointless.
Back in April The Sun reported how Richard, 51, had decided to walk away from the show after 13 years.
While Richard is still hosting his BBC Two series House of Games, he is focusing a lot of his time on his writing.
The star has released three hit novels so far, The Thursday Murder Club, The Man Who Died Twice and this month's The Bullet That Missed.
The trilogy is all part of the Thursday Murder Club series, and Richard has now confirmed there will be three more books in the saga.
On top of that, he is also creating another series of books featuring a whole new group of characters.
