The “Harry Potter” wizarding universe is as vast as they come and could become subject to multiple spin-offs for years to come.

Much to the delight of “Potterheads” all over, Bloomsbury Publishing announced two new “Harry Potter” books slated for release this October.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” the release of “Harry Potter: A History of Magic, The Book of the Expedition” andHarry Potter: A Journey through a History of Magic” will be released together with a Harry Potter exhibition at the British Library.

The former, as per The Business Insider, will feature the wide array of magical subjects that pupils study at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The latter, meanwhile, will divulge the mystique of the Potter world, particularly the mythical creatures, enticing spells and a rundown of famed wizards and witches.

Although it will not be connected to the original stories unlike “Harry Potter & The Cursed Child,” both titles are expected to delve further into the magical fantasy  world created by J.K. Rowling.

As of this writing, there’s still no word as to how much the books will retail to the public.
