It’s official Potterheads –  J.K. Rowling has confirmed the release of a brand new Harry Potter book and it’s hitting shelves this year!

A hardback edition and ebook of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts I & II will be released on Harry Potter’s birthday – July 31, Rowling’s literary and brand management agency The Blair Partnership announced today.

Rowling has said that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is an official sequel to the original seven books, featuring the script  for a new stage play telling the wizard’s story.
