    Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling confirmed the news on her Twitter account. 

    "I'm also very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year. It will tell a new story, which is the result of a collaboration between writer Jack Thorne, director John Tiffany and myself. I don't want to say too much more, because I don't want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans. However, I can say that it is not a prequel!"

    J.K. Rowling explained "To answer one inevitable (and reasonable!) question - why isn't #CursedChild a new novel? - I am confident that when audiences see the play they will agree that it was the only proper medium for the story. I've had countless offers to extend Harry's story over the years, but Jack, John and Sonia Friedman are a dream team! It has been a huge pleasure to share with them (and soon, with you!) this untold part of Harry's story."

    J.K. Rowling's Pottermore added "Huge announcement: A new play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming to London’s West End… #CursedChild"
