I think we should come back and do the opposite, Rupert [Grint] should play Draco, I’ll play Hermione, Dan can play Dobby, and Emma can be Hagrid, it’s the perfect re-casting! It’ll be an interesting spin [on it]. But, seriously, if there was another chance to be in another movie then I’m sure all of us would jump at the chance to be part of it.” 

Felton’s eagerness to return was certainly unbound, and therefore, his willingness made fans wonder if Warner Bros might bring back the actor, as they are currently preparing for the Harry Potter reboot.

This brings us to the casting for the show which hints at how several actors from the original movies could feasibly return in the TV series. Although the child stars won’t be able to return to their old characters, they might come back as adults and appear in different roles. But among the ongoing speculations regarding the cast, Tom Felton’s possible return is making a notable buzz on social media.

According to Screenrant, it is believed that although Tom Felton is too old to return as Draco Malfoy, he can certainly return to the rebooted series as Lucius Malfoy. Playing the role of his onscreen father, originally portrayed by Jason Isaacs, Felton will even have a familiar blonde hair face to take up the mantle. And upgrading him to patriarch would be undoubtedly a thrilling experience.

But as of now, there has been no confirmation surrounding Tom Felton playing the role of Lucius Malfoy in the upcoming Harry Potter TV series.
