Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t think it’s time for his Harry Potter to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, the actor talked about the Harry Potter upcoming Max series, which will bring controversial author JK Rowling’s books to life, each earning their own season in the decade-long show. When asked if fans could expect their beloved version of the Boy Who Lived to make an appearance in the reboot, Radcliffe confirmed that the chances are pretty low.
“I understand they’re trying to start over, and I’m sure whoever makes them will want to put their own mark on it and probably don’t want to have to find out. How to make old Harry do a cameo in this place,” he told the website. “So, I’m definitely not looking for it in any way.”
However, The lost City star explained that he wishes the actor taking on the role next “all the luck in the world,” adding, “I’m really excited for him to pass the torch, but I don’t think it’s necessary for me to physically pass it on. ”
the hollywood reporter reported exclusively in January 2021 that a Harry Potter The show was in the works on then-HBO Max. The news officially broke this April, when Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav announced plans for the live-action series during a presentation on how HBO Max and Discovery+ would integrate after the merger.
This is how Max described the series: “The stories of each of Rowling’s characters Harry Potter The books will become a decade-long series produced with the same epic craftsmanship, love, and care for which this global franchise is known.

Each season will be authentic to the original books and will bring Harry Potter and these incredible adventures to new audiences around the world, while original, classic and beloved films will remain at the center of the franchise and will be available to view around the world.”
