So, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling came out with a new book, titled The Cursed Child, which hit book stores on July 31st, has also been made into a play that has been given 5 stars. Although all Harry Potter fans were so incredibly excited for another book following Harry Potter's life, J.K. Rowling hit us all with some pretty upsetting news.

Rowling says after this book, she's done with Harry Potter's story for good. In an interview, she says "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."

She continues on to say, "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."

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child takes place 19 years later, following Harry's son Albus Severus as he attends Hogwarts.
