Daniel Radcliffe Return As Harry Potter: Daniel Radcliffe is synonymous with Harry Potter, but even though he is the face of the franchise, don’t expect to see him in the upcoming series. The actor recently sat down for interviews promoting his new project but took the time to answer a few questions about the new content from the franchise.

In his chat with ET, the 33-year-old star revealed his thoughts on the upcoming “Harry Potter” TV series and the possibility of his return. When asked if he would reprise his iconic role, Radcliffe expressed his doubts, sharing his belief that the new series aims to create a fresh experience for fans. “I doubt very much that they will. It seems to me that they are wanting to make a fresh series, which it feels like it’d be distracting to have old, haggard Harry also entering from stage left.”

Also speaking with Comicbook.com Daniel said this about the upcoming Harry Potter series, “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. So 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.”

The upcoming series will feature a new cast, and each season will be devoted to one of Rowling’s books. The plan is for the series to unfold over 10 years. Rowling will serve as an executive producer on the show. “I’m looking forward to being part of this new adaptation which will allow for a degree of depth and detail only afforded by a long-form television series,” Rowling said in a statement.

The announcement for the new franchise was met with widespread groans from fans of the original series. Many asked what was the need to gild the lily after all.
