Harry Potter returns: As a TV series from HBO and with a new cast. There is no release date yet.

10 years is not the same as 10 seasons: Incidentally, ten years does not mean that there should be ten seasons of the Harry Potter series – as Warner Bros. Discovery officially emphasized in the course of the announcement. The project will executive produce with controversial Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts author JK Rowling.

What we (maybe) already know: Previously, there were already promising rumors about the project, which are now true. According to a Bloomberg report, each season of the Harry Potter series could be dedicated to a book in the series. Overall, the series format should allow the creators of the series to give the story of the template more room to breathe.

JK Rowling controversy

Comments by Harry Potter author JK Rowling about trans people have repeatedly sparked controversy. This article explains Rowling’s statements and summarizes reactions from those affected. An overview of the whole controversy surrounding JKR and Hogwarts Legacy can be found here.

No cast or release date

Many open questions: It is currently not known which new actors will slip into the roles of Harry, Ron, Hermione and Co. Also, we don’t have a release date or what directors, producers and showrunners are involved. In this regard, fans still have to be patient.

The official confirmation of the Harry Potter series was foreseeable in view of the significant success of the franchise: the cinema films have already grossed over 7.7 billion US dollars worldwide and the recently released role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy exceeded all expectations of Warner Bros.
