I'm not convinced Unseen Academicals did the same for the Wizards, though, so perhaps there'll be another Wizards book. After all, even though Equal Rites starred Granny Weatherwax, it was set largely at UU.
As I remember it,Tiffany was always set for four books. Now that she's officially an adult (adulthood is rather younger on the Disc than in Roundworld), any further books about her would be adult Witch books. There may or may not be any more about her, but it's unlikely.
I think Unseen Academicals need not be the last Wizards story; there is some potential conflict in the Dean's new university, and the question of who might or might not be promoted to his old place at UU. This "voluntary leaving" bit is new for UU, and they may not have a system to deal with it. They kept Rincewind's old room when he was away for years, but I think Windle Poons had to turf somebody out of his when he returned unexpectedly. Not to mention it might be dangerous to try to take over a room formerly occupied by the former Dean.
On the other hand, Ponder and Ridcully seem to have come to an unspoken understanding.
