A story is not over till its over. Well, this quote holds true for the ‘Harry Potter’ series as well. The last installment of the series, ‘Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows 2’, ended with the death of Lord Voldemort and Harry getting married to Ginny Weasley (they have two sons, Albus and James, and a daughter, Lily). Also, his eldest son, Albus Severus Potter, leaves for Hogwarts.

And finally, all was well.


But where magic is involved, every end is a new beginning. Sometime back, JK Rowling declared that she was writing a sequel to her cherished seven-part series. Now she has confirmed that the sequel will be released in the form of a play.


Rowling wrote with final play with English playwright Jack Thorne and theater director John Tiffany. The story takes place 19 years after the end of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’. The decision to covert the play into a book was made afterwards.


In this book, Harry is an employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

Pottermore also announced:

In ‘Harry Pottter and the Cursed Child’, Albus Potter struggles with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: Sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.

Also, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, a movie based on one of Rowling’s short ‘Harry Potter’ companion books will release on November 18.


Now, the most important question: will He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named return?

The wait is over. The mystery begins.
