The Next Generation is a host of characters descended from the canon characters of the Harry Potter series.
This generation has also been referred to as the Boom Generation, as it is the first generation born following the end of the Second Wizarding War.
This generation generally begins in the spring of 1998 starting with Teddy Lupin's birth and ends around the early to mid 2010s; this generation most likely mirrored that of their grandparents' childhood and adolescence during the 1950s and 60s; they grew up in a peaceful time after the aftermath of the War with Grindlewald, unlike their parents' and older siblings' generation, who lived through two wizarding wars with Voldemort.
