“Like the rest of the world, [I’m] very excited to watch as an audience member,” Radcliffe told E! News.

When asked if he would appear in the upcoming series, which will premiere on Max in 2026, the actor said, “I don’t think so.”

“I think they very wisely want to [have] a clean break. And I don’t know if it would work to have us do anything in it,” he added.

Radcliffe was further pressed about what he would say if Max approached him to return to Hogwarts, and he said, “I’m gonna be a politician about this and not deal in hypotheticals.”

The new Harry Potter TV series is set to be more faithful to the books than the films. Radcliffe had been asked about possibly taking part in the new adaptation but he completely shut down the possibility at the time.

“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,” Radcliffe told Comic Book in 2023. “So I’m definitely not seeking it out in any way. But I do wish them, obviously, all the luck in the world and I’m very excited to have that torch passed. But I don’t think it needs me to physically pass it.”
