The Kepler mission opened the door to a small but bonafide sample of circumbinary planets. Some initial trends have been identified and used to challenge our theories of planet and binary formation. However, the Kepler sample is not only small but contains biases. I will present a circumbinary plan for the future. Specifically, I will cover the BEBOP radial velocity survey, the latest TESS transit mission and a new technique for digging out small circumbinary planets in archival Kepler photometry.
