"Harry Potter And The Cursed Child" Will Be A Sequel About Albus Severus

"The eighth story. Nineteen years later."

Today, Potterheads all around the world flipped our lids when we were given more information about J.K. Rowling's new play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The official artwork for Harry Potter and the #CursedChild has been revealed: https://t.co/ZN8XJfaytj

DON'T WORRY, IT'S STILL DEFINITELY NOT A PREQUEL.

But it is a sequel! The story will "pick up where Deathly Hallows", left off, the play's producer, Sonia Friedman, told the Daily Mail.

BBC

A synopsis for the play was posted on Pottermore:

The tagline for the play is: "The eighth story. Nineteen years later."

Warner Bros.

OoooOOooOOooOooOOOOOooOOO.

We were also given some moving artwork not unlike a magical portrait.

Evanna Lynch was quick to start fangirling over the news.

The Cursed Child is a SEQUEL?!!!! *wipes out the last few blurry, empty years and resumes hardcore Pottering* ❤️⚡️

Though this person's probably cracked why the play has that title.

Albus Severus is the cursed child bc he's called Albus Severus

Warner Bros.

Harry probably should have just let Ginny name the kids tbh.

Tickets go on sale next week.
