J.K. Rowling says no, BUT not never. Kinda.
She was recently interviewed by Matt Lauer and he asked her if she’s secretly been working on the eighth book in the series. She said no. So then he asked her if she would write another one in the future. This is where there’s a little hope. She said no. But did not go so far as to say that it will never happen. Because she created the world and might step back into it. *insert any emoji you want here*
Now I know what some of y’all are thinking. I haven’t even read the books she has written. Yeah, yeah. I haven’t. But that doesn’t mean I’m not a fan of the series. I grew up with Harry Potter just like you did (some of you). So I’m not going to act like I’m less of a fan or something. You can think it. You can say it. Doesn’t make any difference to me. If J.K. Rowling ever decides to add to the story of Harry, Ron, and Hermione…I will be excited. Period.
What do you think? Think she’s just playing games or that she might actually return to the series? I…don’t know. I don’t think she has anything to gain from adding to a series that was pretty definitively finished.
On this day in 2014 I published Shelfie: Finally Organizing my Bookshelf.
