J.K. Rowling Brings Harry Potter Back in New Story!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

After seven increasingly lengthy novels, fans said goodbye to Harry Potter with the "happily ever after..." conclusion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Now it looks as though author J.K. Rowling has decided to give us one last look at The Boy Who Lived.

In a short story posted to her Pottermore website today, Rowling has resurrected her most beloved character, and the frail, frightened boy we came to know and love way back in 1998 is long gone.

The Harry of today is a 34-year-old married man with "threads of silver" in his hair and a fresh scar on his face as the result of his "top secret" work battling evil.

Rowling's agent has confirmed that there are no plans for a new Potter novel, but the story posted today (that takes the form of a tabloid article by gossip columnist Rita Skeeter) provides updates on several beloved characters from the franchise:

Ron Weasley, for example, now runs the family joke shop. His detail-oriented wife, Hermione,  has taken on the suitably bureaucratic title of Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

Sadly, the Harry-Hermione romance some fans had hoped for has yet to transpire.

While it's looking more and more as though Rowling will never extend her iconic series to eight novels, there's plenty of material to keep Potter-philes under her spell:

A Potter-prequel stage play is still in pre-production, and an upcoming film based on a Hogwarts textbook will serve as a sort of Harry Potter spinoff that may launch a new franchise.

So it looks as though Quidditch groupies everywhere have reason to rejoice. J.K. Rowling will continue to provide you with unexpected doses of felix felicis.
