I'm ready for a new series/genre of adolescent books to become ridiculously popular

First there was Harry Potter.  Then Twilight.  Last year Hunger Games took over.  I realize I'm probably being a little impatient since we still have a few more Katniss Everdeen movies left, and her reign is due to last for a while longer.  But I finished those books well over a year ago, and I'm more than ready to read the next big thing.  If it's already out there and I just haven't realized, please let me know; I keep my ear to the grindstone on these things though, so I don't think it is.

And while I'm on the subject, what will that genre be?  Zombies are played out already.  Time travel comes to mind, but that's too broad.  I'm thinking human clones (or maybe people with tracking chips inside them who don't know it?).  There was a great TV series on BBC America this past spring/summer called Orphan Black (and it's coming back in April) that somebody should definitely use as inspiration to write four to five awesome books that can be turned into five to six blockbuster movies (have you noticed that the last book in a series is always split into two movies these days?).
