J.K. Rowling will release three new Harry Potter books stories next month

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists will reportedly reveal the truth about Professor Umbridge, and the relationship between Professor Horace Slughorn and Lord Voldemort when he was a young student at Hogwarts. OOOH!

Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies will focus on Professor McGonagall and werewolf Remus Lupin.

And Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide will take fans behind-the-scenes of Hogwarts. DREAM.COME.TRUE.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was said to be the last book in the franchise

But fear not, unlike Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, these stories have been confirmed that they’ll “supplement” the original seven-book HP series.

A statement read: “The Pottermore Presents series will launch in September and is intended to supplement the Harry Potter book series with short-form content that is entertaining, creatively curated by the Pottermore staff and accessed easily on mobile platforms.”

In 2011, Pottermore (an online Harry Potter website which offers news, features and articles) was launched, and so one of the reasons these stories are going on sale on there is to “reach” fans who don’t currently use the website.

“We also recognise that not all Harry Potter fans who want to read more about the wizarding world visit pottermore.com so we’ve developed Pottermore Presents to reach those fans through other channels. The titles will be available on the Pottermore shop and via leading online retail outlets,” the statement continued.

Each story is about 10,000 words long, and will cost about $3. They’ll be released on Pottermore and other online book retailers on September 6th.

KEEEEN!
