If you thought you saw the end of Harry Potter, you might be wrong. Author JK Rowling appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show on Friday and dropped the hint that we may see “the boy who lived” once again.
“They’re all in my head still,” Rowing said, referring to all the of Potter characters, “I could definitely write an eighth, a ninth book. I think I am done, but you never know.”
After selling 400 million copies of the series and a total of nine films (the last book will be split into two films), millions of Potter fans have longed for more from the series. However, during Rowling’s interview, she didn’t give a timetable for the possible next installment in the series. She did, however, state how finishing the last book was a major impact on her life.
“It was a bereavement. It was huge,” Rowling stated. “Initially I was elated, then I cried like I had never cried before. And only twice in my life have I cried like that, [the other time was] when my mother died.”
For fans that still need their Potter fix, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One hits theaters November 19th.
