The "mild" success of 2018's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald made fans worry for the future of the spin-off series. 

Thankfully, we've got the confirmation that the Fantastic Beasts series will live on. 

Warner Bros. confirmed that the third film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, will release on April 15, 2022.

Just as the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, J.K. Rowling will return to write the story for The Secrets of Dumbledore.

David Yates is also back on the director's chair with Eddie Redmayne reprising his role as Newt Scamander.

Jude Law's Albus Dumbledore is also expected to return for the third film. 

Who isn't returning is Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. 

In 2020, the studio replaced Depp with Mads Mikkelsen due to Depp's legal troubles stemming from his messy public divorce with Amber Heard.

Having said that, Secrets of Dumbledore is a sure thing now.

All fans can do is wait and hope that the upcoming film matches up to the standards set by the original Harry Potter films.

Luckily, the Harry Potter spin-off will be aided by a theater-exclusive release in 2022.

If nothing else, its box office take should be much higher than Warner Bros. 2021 films.
