LEVIOSAAA! An 8th Harry Potter Book Will Be Released This Summer!

Rejoice, Harry Potter fans, for if you were unable to get tickets to the recently-announced, brand-new Harry Potter story on London's West End, your prayers have been answered.


Yes, the script to J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany's new stage show will indeed be released in novel form on July 31st of this year, along with on eBook, following the play's premiere a day prior.

The storyline is a continuation of the original seven-book series, but is set almost two decades later.

Here's the full synopsis:

The eighth story. Nineteen years later.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.

In a statement to Mashable, Pottermore CEO Susan L. Jurevics said:

Pottermore is proud to be a key part of the multi-platform effort that will allow the epic eighthHarry Potter story to be read and enjoyed by a wider, global audience.

With the script eBook of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child helping to lead the way, 2016 will be one of our most exciting years yet.
