When Warner Bros. Discovery announced that they were working on rebooting the Harry Potter franchise with a television show-adaptation, it raised questions and suspicision among fans regarding the potential return of Daniel Radcliffe to once again play the Boy Who Lived.

At the time when the final installment in the Harry Potter franchise was released, that being Harry Potter: and The Deathly Hallows Part 2, Radcliffe was 21-years old still playing the character. Now, the actor is in his early 30's, and based on what we know about the series' development so far, Warner Bros. Discovery is planning a 10-year long run on the MAX streaming service, with J.K. Rowling among the shows executive producers list.

If Radcliffe were to be returning for the role, it would most probably not be as Harry Potter once more, and most certainly not lasting for a 10-year long duration, although, we are uncertain if secretly Warner Bros. Discovery are developing their own methods to see the return of this iconic character once more as an adult.

In an interview with Deadline's The Actor' Side, Radcliffe had been asked about the likelihood of whether or not fans can, at the very least, see him make a cameo in the TV adaptation. Radcliffe answered disclosing his truest intentions about possibly making a grand return:

I don’t think so, no. Certainly from everything that I’ve read about the series, they’re starting fresh and would probably be weird to have me pop in… - Daniel Radcliffe

Radcliffe seemingly expresses his intent on taking a step away from the reinvented adaptation of the series, believing that an idea to have him make an appearance to some capacity would be quite weird in his opinion. 

No further details of Radcliffe's claims have been made.

Harry Potter is a series of seven fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry's conflict with Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people).

Give him 3 dump trucks full of money and he'll be in the Cursed Child trilogy as soon as he gets older.

@CoHost - They tried during the HBO Max reunion special, but he said "No". So WB had no choice but to reboot....

WB is already trying to do something again with Peter Jackson for Lord of the Rings and if it doesn't work, thats next on the reboot list.

I don’t think it would be weird at all I know how much of a tortured soul he was during his time but it would be satisfying if he played Harry’s dad like Ashley Johnson played Ellie’s mom In the last of us

It just sounds like he's being polite about not wanting to return to the Harry Potter role. Let's be real for a second, Daniel Radcliffe has absolutely no problem in roles that are weird. Guns Akimbo, Miracle Workers, Swiss Army Man, Horns, and ... well, the Weird Al movie.

@Reeds2Much - Yup, much like Pattinson he's letting his work distance him from the role that he's most known for. Good for him, but I hope he does eventually come back to it if the role fits.

From what I heard, WB reached out to the main 3 for a Cursed Child movie but two of them refused as long as JK was involved. Then WB tried to buy out JK but she refused. So now they're rebooting it, because otherwise the whole franchise is sitting on a shelf not making money, and those game sales got their mouths watering.
