Scott announced the release of the next book in the Magic 2.0 series, The Vexed Generation. It is expected to be released in June 2019.
Summary from Audible:
In the latest rollicking adventure in the Magic 2.0 series, it’s time for the teenagers to show the adults how wizardry really works.
Mattie and Brewster are normal, typical 16-year-old twins who live with their normal, boring parents: Martin and Gwen Banks. Normal and boring, that is, until the day their father's best friend shows up at their house - dressed in what appears to be a bathrobe.
The next thing Mattie and Brewster know, their parents are frozen like human statues in their living room, the guy in the bathrobe has vanished, and they need to find answers - fast.
The twins set off on a quest to discover the truth of their parents' lives. Along the way they find secrets, lies, magic, time travel, strange new friends, stranger new enemies, and a really weird dirigible (which, they're told repeatedly, is not a blimp). It is a twisted and bizarre trail that, they hope, will lead them to the man they blame for their parents' peril:

Magic 2.0 Wiki
Welcome to the largest (and probably only) collection of knowledge (other than the mind Scott himself) about the Magic 2.0 series written by Scott Meyer. Obviously, there are spoilers on every inch of this Wiki, so make sure you have read the books before exploring the Wiki. If you haven't read the entire series, I would avoid the individual character pages. Also, make sure you read/listen to the entire series ASAP.
RetroOutro and Ray Friesen have contributed amazing illustrations to the wiki. I thank ye for it. If you go to the Image page (which most people won't), it has the uploader "by Basajason" next to every image. That is very misleading and don't think its possible to make it say "uploaded by" instead. I just want to be clear, I had nothing to do with any of the work other than uploading them.
I created a page with a gallery for Fan Art.
I have also uploaded artwork from the US versions of the book.. I have not asked Amazon for permission to use the images. I believe most Wikis fall under fair use, so I will leave them there until I am asked to take them down. If anyone knows the artist who did the cover art for the US versions, please let me know, so I can credit their work.
I would welcome any contributions. You are welcome to create new pages or work pages I have not made it to yet. Please see the Style Guide and I would ask that if you plan on editing a book page that I am currently working on, please make a note including a description of the change. It doesn't have to be detailed. Just a small note like "canon correction", "grammar", "spelling", "rephrase" etc.

Ideas for Artwork
- Cover of Tylers Book, The Curse of the Ghost of the Wolfmans Mummy
- In Spell Or High Water, Martin and Gary work on an entrance for when Phillip and Martin arrive in Atlantis. It was supposed to look like the poster for an action film. Martin is frozen in the air while doing a spinning kick. explosions in the back ground. a white Pontiac Fiero jumping a ramp etc.
- unspeakable muck covered statue of merlin
History of the Wiki
This wiki was created in Jan 2017. The admin didn't add any content and immediately abandoned it. I just recently adopted the wiki and have been building up the content over the last 3 weeks. After I finished Out of Spite, Out of Mind, I decided to read the series again and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to fatten up this wiki. I am currently about half way through Off To Be The Wizard. I will try to make sure any spoilers are in the right location, so you can safely read parts of the wiki if you haven't completed the entire series.
