"Turns out, they're letting me write the next two books in the Aftermath trilogy—so, you've got me for at least a couple more years!"
―Chuck Wendig[src]

Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy is a trilogy of novels written by author Chuck Wendig.[1] The trilogy, which began publication on September 4, 2015 with the novel Aftermath,[3] tells a canonical story of events that took place after Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[2] The second and third books of the trilogy, Aftermath: Life Debt and Aftermath: Empire's End, were announced at New York Comic Con on October 10, 2015.[5] Shortly after, it was revealed that Life Debt would be released on July 12, 2016,[6] and Empire's End would be released on January 31, 2017, though this was later delayed until February 21, 2017 instead.[4]

The short stories Blade Squadron: Zero Hour, Blade Squadron: Kuat, Turning Point and Blade Squadron: Jakku from Star Wars Insider were marketed as tie-ins to the novels in the Aftermath Trilogy.
