According to The Cursed Child's site, the play with be split into two parts and is officially the eighth story in the series.
YUP. WE'RE GETTING A LEGITIMATE SEQUEL.
The site reads: "It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children."
"While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."
The Producer Sonia Friedman also confirmed that the play will follow the events of the epilogue, telling The Daily Mail: "it’s safe to say that The Cursed Child picks up from where The Deathly Hallows ended", and the tagline reads: "The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later."
The artwork for the play has also been revealed, and naturally it is a gif/magical moving picture of what looks like Albus in a winged nest (weird, we know).
The play won't be an insanely lavish production with explosions and flying broomsticks, but will focus on storytelling instead. Friedman said: "Because it’s a play, it’s worth stressing that at this stage of the process it’s not our intention to have a high-tech show, but to go back to basic story telling."
