J.K. Rowling has been exceptionally good to fans in 2016. Potterheads were gifted The Cursed Child play, plus the Eddie Redmayne fantasy film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. As this trying year comes to a close, it looks like fans now have two new J.K. Rowling books to look forward to.
On Wednesday, one curious fan asked on Twitter when we would be seeing a new book from the British author. Her response:
We don't know whether the books will be a standalone, part of the Cormoran Strike series, or if it will be set in the Harry Potter universe, but she did confirm that the books would not be about Newt Scamander.
When asked if the works would be under her name or her pen name, Robert Galbraith, she responded:
It's been over a year since her last novel, Career of Evil, was published, so you can bet fans are anxious for more material.
Rowling ended her update with a quick aside about why Queenie's legilimency in Fantastic Beasts seem more powerful than Severus Snape's abilities.
That Rowling really knows how to work Twitter.
