Harry Potter and the Cursed Child producers are in talks to move to New York's Broadway in 2018, after a hit debut at London's West End earlier this year.

J.K. Rowling's Pottermore website announced on Thursday that the producers, Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, are discussing with Ambassador Theatre Group to bring the hit show next year.

"The moment we opened in the West End, the inevitable question was 'when are you going to Broadway?'" Friedman said in a statement to People.

"We know we need to bring it to New York as soon as we possibly can," he added.

The play, which is based on a popular boy wizard character, will be completely remodeled to create a more intimate atmosphere.

The Lyric Theater, one of Broadway's largest venues with 1,900 seats, will reduce the total seats to 1,500 seats "to accommodate the dramatic look and feel" of the play.

Until 2018,"Cursed Child is sold out at London's Palace Theater but more tickets are expected to be released in January.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set 19 years after Rowling concluded the book series with the boy wizard's teen years, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2007. The story revolves round the central character, Harry Potter and his son.
