Matthew Lewis, known for playing Neville Longbottom in the iconic ‘Harry Potter’ film series, has discussed the potential of returning for the upcoming ‘Harry Potter’ TV series currently in development. During an event at the Harry Potter New York store, Lewis spoke to People magazine about the possibility of reprising his role for the Max reboot.

He candidly expressed his perspective, saying, “The reason I got into this job in the first place was because I have a very short attention span. I am very, very poor at maintaining anything for any length of time. I’ve had many, many hobbies and passions over the years. Not a single one do I still do. I fall madly in love with things and then almost immediately forget about them.”

Despite his interest in exploring new roles and projects, Lewis remains open to returning as Neville Longbottom if approached. “It’s not something I’m looking at or want to do but would not turn my nose up at,” he explained. “I’d be very interested to see if it was Neville as an adult, a whole different vibe. That could be interesting. I would certainly look at that and consider it,” he said in his interview with People magazine.

Warner Bros. Discovery has ambitious plans for the Harry Potter reboot, spanning over 10 years with each season dedicated to one of J.K. Rowling’s beloved books. The series is scheduled to premiere its first season on Max in 2026.

Lewis also acknowledged that he is not the only former Harry Potter star cautious about reprising their roles in the reboot. Previously, Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, shared similar sentiments, stating, “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.”
