Posting on Tumblr, the writer announced that he will start work on "a whole new unrelated series" once his current project Seconds is completed.
"If I do more Scott Pilgrim stories in the future, it would have to be a 'new saga' that had a different focus. I've had a few ideas for that, but I don't have any specific plans to return to SP any time soon, because I want to start a whole new unrelated series," he wrote.
O'Malley also cast doubt on the possibility of new Scott Pilgrim material in the future, pointing out that the story has a clear beginning, middle and end.
"I have to be honest, if I was doing a new Scott Pilgrim book in 2012 I could make a LOT of money and get a LOT of tumblr notes (lol). But listen, I'm really married to the idea that stories have beginnings, middles and ends. I set out to make a story that had an ending," he said.
"I'm always bummed out by manga that goes on for 30 plus volumes and just seems to be going nowhere. I set out to tell the story of Scott and Ramona in this limited scope. I think I was only like partially successful all-around, but I at least accomplished my goal."
The Scott Pilgrim series concluded with the release of Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour in 2010.
