This would be the one show that would finally make me sign up for HBO Max, IF it's true. Up until now none of their offerings have interested me, even all of those Game of Thrones prequels they have in the works, but now I'm hearing rumors of a new Harry Potter series for the streamer!
If this is true, it's very exciting! According to Variety, a series from the Harry Potter Wizarding universe is in the very early stages of development. They claim to have sources that tell them several writers have had conversations about the project, but so far no writers or actors have officially been named as being a part of it. There's also no word about what the story line would be or even when in the known timeline it would occur.
However all of this seems like a big if. Both HBO Max and Warner Brothers have responded to the rumors saying, "There are no 'Harry Potter' series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform."
Well, somebody's lying.
