Daniel Radcliffe, best known for his role as Harry Potter in the film series based on JK Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter novels, is not planning to reprise the role in the upcoming Max TV reboot series.

In an interview with Access Hollywood on Monday, Radcliffe said he’s excited to see a fresh take on the Harry Potter story, but clarified that he’s unlikely to be involved in the project.

“I think it’s very much like, they’re going to do a new show and there’s going to be someone else playing Harry, so I think it would be weird for me to show up”, Radcliffe said.

He compared the possibility of retelling the Potter stories on screen to the various film adaptations of The Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, emphasizing the enduring appeal of the originals.

“I think the Potter books will always be more important than one interpretation or one series, so it’ll be cool to see the torch passed on,” he added.

Warner Bros. and Marks (part of the Warner Bros. Discovery Channel) announced in April this year that they are working on a Harry Potter TV series that aims to be a “faithful adaptation” of Rowling’s book series. Rowling published the Potter series of books between 1997 and 2007, and currently serves as an executive producer.

The show is expected to run for an unprecedented 10 years, with each season promising to be “faithful to the source material, bringing Harry Potter and these incredible adventures to new audiences around the world, while the original, classic and beloved films will remain at the center.”

The series will feature an as-yet-unannounced set of new faces in the Potter films – Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. Ron Weasley starred between 2001 and 2011, respectively.

Meanwhile, Radcliffe is currently starring in the TBS comedy series Miracle Workers, opposite Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, Jon Bass and Steve Buscemi). The show’s fourth season will premiere on July 10th.
