Daniel Radcliffe fine not joining ‘Harry Potter’ series cast, expresses support for the run

Not-so-good news for our dear Potterheads out there!

It seems that Daniel Radcliffe is fine in not joining the cast of the upcoming series adaptation of the Harry Potter novels that is set to stream on platform Max (formerly HBO Max).

The 33-year old British actor told ComicBook that he feels that he doesn’t need to be there, but he expressed support for it.

“My understanding is that they’re trying to very much start fresh and I’m sure whoever is making them will want to make their own mark on it and probably not want to have to figure out how to get old Harry to cameo in this somewhere,” said Radcliffe. “I’m definitely not seeking it out in any way. But I do wish them, obviously, all the luck in the world and I’m very excited to have that torch passed. But I don’t think it needs me to physically pass it.”

Despite starring in other films, Radcliffe is still remembered for portraying the namesake character for the film adaptations – ending the stint with 2012’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. He is set to star on the TBS comedy series Miracle Workers: End Workers which premieres on July 10.

It can be recalled that Warner Bros. Discovery, the parent company of streaming platform Max and cable channel HBO, announced their plans last April of creating a new adaptation of the J.K. Rowling novels. Each season of the upcoming series would focus on one novel. The plans for recreating an adaptation were first reported by Variety in 2021 before WarnerMedia acquired Discovery.

The production for the series is yet to be green-lit following the announcement three months ago. Streaming service Max will produce alongside Warner Bros. Television and Bronte Film and TV. Rowling, Neil Blair, and Ruth Kenley-Letts are the executive producers of the series.
