he was one of the world’s most prominent victims of cancel culture. Now it seems that J.K. Rowling is uncancelling herself. Some fans reckon a comeback is evidenced by her prominent role in the franchise’s upcoming return to screens with a new television show.

Amid a backlash against her views on women’s rights and transgenderism, even mentioning Rowling’s name next to her works has been taboo in recent years.
