On the very same day the book for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out in summer 2016, I was flying back from Spain and all I could think about was rushing to the airport WH Smith and grabbing myself a copy.
Im not even ashamed to admit it. I spent the rest of the day reading and left all my sand covered clothes unpacked until the following day. Suddenly, I was ten years old again, flipping through the pages greedily while not really wanting the story to end.
Now JK Rowling has dropped a hint which has made me go full nerd all over again, with the suggestion there could well be more to come in the story of the boy wizard…
JK has previously insisted Harrys story is all wrapped up neatly, with two-part play The Cursed Child being a final, theatrical farewell to her beloved characters.
However, the Twitter queen has now dropped a Blasting Curse of a tweet which strongly points towards there being some sort of unspecified update on The Cursed Child.
Alongside an image of the sinister dark mark, the legendary childrens author tweeted:
Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places #HarryPotter #CursedChild

Naturally, her fiercely loyal fanbase went wild over this mysterious tweet, which popped up after the writer had taken a few months away from Twitter.
One person squealed:
TELL US MORE PLEASE.
Oh my god. If this means what I think it means… You gave us a true gift in Cursed Child and no one can take that away. The play will always be the thing.
Many fans speculated this tweet alluded to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child potentially being made into a film, however this theory has been shot down by Broadway representatives.
