There is a rumours that HBO Max is working to bring back the young wizard “Harry Potter” to the TV in a series, which would be in early development at HBO Max, with Warner Media talking to potential writers to hash out the subject of an HBO Max series set in the Wizarding World. 

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that HBO Max is in the process of developing a live-action Harry Potter TV series for the streamer, with “multiple conversations with potential writers exploring various ideas.”

It’s not yet confirmed whether the series would be a straightforward adaptation of the seven books, or if it would be a spin-off exploring yet another corner of the Wizarding World. No writers or talent are yet attached to the project either, as conversations are still “in the extremely early stages,” with HBO Max and Warner Bros.  

The streamer and Warner Bros. have issued a statement denying the existence of any such project “There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform”. We will see sooner or later who is telling us the truth.
