After ‘Harry Potter’ studio, Warner Bros, announced that they were working with J.K Rowling on a new spin-off series based upon the Hogwarts textbook, many fans wondered whether or not Daniel Radcliffe would return to reprise his star-making role.

Well, they probably won’t like the answer, but at least the speculations can cease, as Radcliffe recently revealed that he has no intentions in playing Potter again.

I'm sure they're going to have a great time. I'm sure a lot of people will be really excited," said Radcliffe at a press event for the new Sky Arts series ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook & Other Stories’ co-starring Jon Hamm.

"I, needless to say, won't be involved. I don't know if any of us [the original Potter cast] will be. I know nothing about it."

Rowling will make her debut as a screenwriter for ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, inspired by the first-year textbook that Potter and his classmates study from at Hogwarts in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.’ The film series will feature the textbook’s author, adventurer Newt Scamander.

In 2001, Rowling published the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ “magizoology” compendium to raise funds for the charity, Comic Relief.
