Rowling revealed that fans should NOT expect a new set of Harry Potter tales based on her latest work, saying:
“[Harry] goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done. This is the next generation, you know. So, I’m thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now.”
Then again, she admitted she didn’t actually want to continue her series after the seventh book — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — and yet, here we are with The Cursed Child!

“[The play] chimed perfectly with the material I had about the next generation and I could see it would work perfectly. So, I never wanted to write another novel, but this will give the fans something special.”
