JK Rowling filled her fans with glee this morning by announcing that today was the day Harry Potter’s son James Sirius would be starting his first year at Hogwarts, as the Inquisitr previously reported. Now JK Rowling is keeping the magic alive by revealing which Hogwarts house James Sirius has been sorted in — and providing an update on the son of Lupin and Tonks, Teddy Lupin.
Always a master at bringing a story to life, JK Rowling pretended that she had just heard news of the Hogwarts sorting hat ceremony and shared the results with her Twitter followers. You can read them in the tweet below.
Have just heard that James S Potter has been Sorted (to nobody’s surprise) into Gryffindor. Teddy Lupin (Head Boy, Hufflepuff) disappointed.

Even though JK Rowling has yet to announce a new Harry Potter book, or even reveal if she plans to write anything else within the Harry Potter universe, she seems to be enjoying the continuation of the story. Within the tiny tweet, JK Rowling managed to provide a lot of authorial flair, noting that nobody would be surprised to learn that Harry Potter’s son was sorted into Gryffindor, but also adding that poor Teddy Lupin was disappointed his family friend wasn’t sorted into Hufflepuff with him, where he was recently made Head Boy.
As Entertainment Weekly reports, Teddy Lupin’s mother Tonks was also a Hufflepuff, though his father Remus was a Gryffindor like those in the Potter family.
Fans have provided plenty of feedback to the JK Rowling tweets, putting in their own two cents about how things should be going down at Hogwarts.
@jk_rowling I’m sure Albus Severus’ house anxiety has only increased because of this.

Harry Potter fans are excited to see if JK Rowling releases any new information about what’s going on at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In the meantime, fans will have to settle for the new attractions at the Harry Potter theme park and enjoy the new stage play JK Rowling wrote called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
What do you think about JK Rowling sorting character into houses after the series has ended?
