Peter Tomasi has previously said that Carrie Kelley is sticking around the main DC continuity but neither he nor DC would confirm if she will be the new Robin. While he of course wouldn't reveal if she is going to be the new Robin, Tomasi sat down with Newsarama to talk about his experiences with Carrie, if Bruce will recruit a new sidekick, if there was any hesitation in bringing her into the New 52, and what Bruce thinks about her, amongst other things.
