The news came a week after the studio said "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow had left the project.

Abrams helmed the critically acclaimed, 2015 blockbuster "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens."

Chris Terrio will help Abrams pen "Episode IX."

"With 'The Force Awakens,' J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy," Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement.
