At HBO Max, a “Harry Potter” TV series is presently under production. HBO Max and Discovery+ will officially be united into a new service called simply Max, it was announced during Warner Bros. Discovery’s presentation to the media and investors on April 12.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, On April 3, information about a sitcom based on the popular J.K. Rowling book series first surfaced, but it has now been confirmed. The project, dubbed a “decade-long series” by Warner Bros. Discovery, will be based on one of the franchise’s books for each season. An entirely new cast from the movies will appear in it.
“We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to discover Hogwarts in a whole new way,” said Casey Bloys, chairman and CEO of HBO & Max Content. “Harry Potter is a cultural phenomenon and it is clear there is such an enduring love and thirst for the Wizarding World.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Television and J.K. Rowling, this new Max Original series will dive deep into each of the iconic books that fans have continued to enjoy for all of these years.”
According to The New York Times, Bront Film and TV and Warner Bros. Television, Max will produce. Along with Ruth Kenley-Letts and Neil Blair, Rowling will serve as executive producer. Executive producing is currently being discussed with David Heyman.
“Max’s commitment to preserving the integrity of my books is important to me, and I’m looking forward to being part of this new adaptation which will allow for a degree of depth and detail only afforded by a long form television series,” said Rowling.
Years of rumors about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter moving to television come to an end with the announcement. Before Discovery purchased WarnerMedia in 2021, Variety reported that the corporation was planning to create a “Harry Potter” television series.
The franchise has demonstrated astounding popularity across a variety of mediums. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” also known as “Sorcerer’s Stone” in the United States, was first released in 1997. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the last book, was released in 2007.
