It is too early to speculate on this aspect as Google has not yet come up with any update on this. Right now, Google is busy releasing MRs - the Maintenance Releases for its Lollipop update.
We will need to wait for the complete roll out of the Lollipop update before any speculation can begin on the next release.
Well, one thing is sure - the next version will be named with letter M - anything from Milkshake, Mint or some other dessert beginning with letter M.

Google has not announced about this yet. Latest version Android v5 Lollipop is just released and updates of this OS are still coming with minor or major bug fixes. So we can say that Lollipop is not yet fully successfully released. So its too early to say about next OS.

But we can say that next OS will me more tasty and yummy than Lollipop like Maggi, Mayonese, Momos, Muffins or Mango Lassi.
