Batman writer, and de facto leader of the line of books for DC Comics right now, Scott Snyder, participated in an AMA on Reddit today, and among other things, he revealed a second year is on the way for the weekly series Batman Eternal.

The series will end in March, just prior to DC Comics’ move, when there’s largely speculated to be a two-month event that will take the place of the entire line at DC Comics, to celebrate the original Crisis on Infinite Earths while DC moves from New York to Los Angeles. It will then pick back up at an as-yet-undetermined date for a “Year 2.”

The continuation had been teased before, but never confirmed until now. Snyder’s direct quote in the AMA was, “Yep! The story ends in March and then we'll do a year 2 after a break (we have to get WAY ahead on a weekly series before it starts coming out).”

Aside from that, there were only a few other story-teases in the Q&A. Snyder does plan to bring back Lincoln March, for example. He plans for Wytches to go about 4 arcs, or at least that’s what’s planned for it right now. His top character at Marvel he’d like to do is Captain America, though he’s also discussed a Ghost Rider story with Greg Capullo, his partner on Batman. He did tease that Batman #36 will reveal “how long we’ve had plans for Endgame,” implying it will tie back to an older story.
