JK Rowling Will Not Write A Sequel To the Fantastic Beasts Novel

Yes, it might be hard to believe, but it’s been a decade since JK Rowling released her last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. However, the story lived on in the form of eight theatrical movies all the way into the 21st century. Not only that, even a West End stage play of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, several short stories, theme parks and the recently released Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them all supplied to the success and the longevity of the world.

Now, it seems that Rowling is back to do doing what she does best and she’s working on another novel – actually, two – but before you all get excited, it’s not sure if the novels are set in the world of Harry Potter.

Rowling is extremely responsive to fans on Twitter and when a fan asked if she’ll be releasing a new novel, she responded with a big FAT YES.

This. This is misleading. Obviously, all the fans thought that JK Rowling is talking about another Harry Potter book (because she doesn’t write about anything else) and that this book would be a sequel of the Newt Scamander book, Fantastic Beasts. However, JK Rowling was speedy at shutting down the rumors that started.

We shouldn’t be too sad though. We’re still getting four movies.

But what is she writing about then?

Everyone knows Rowling as the writer of the Harry Potter series. But not everyone is aware of another series penned down by the writer because she writes it under a different penname of Robert Galbraith. Under this name, JK Rowling has written three crime novel featuring the private investigator Cormoran Strike: The Cuckoo’s Calling (2013), The Silkworm (2014), and Career of Evil (2015).

After her turning down the rumor, she was asked if she’ll be writing under the penname of Galbraith or as Rowling. And she was quick to answer. Apparently, and this is exciting, she’s writing a book under both names.

While the Robert Galbraith novels will likely be a continuation of the Cormoran Strike series, we virtually don’t know what she’s going to write under her own name. She said she’s not adding anything to the Harry Potter world, but really, we thought the Deathly Hallows was going to be it. Was it? No. It was not.

So really, we’re just going to have to wait and see what really happens now.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
