In the most inevitable news of all time, there’s a new Harry Potter show in the works.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the new Harry Potter TV series is in the very, very early stages of development.

Details about the TV series are few and far between at this point in the process. It’ll be a while until we find out about any of the important details.

I’m not entirely sure what the show will be about; it doesn’t sound like anyone really knows at this point. But, I’m sure fans of Harry Potter will be excited about the new TV show.

Will the Harry Potter show be on Netflix?

Although many Netflix subscribers would love to see the Harry Potter show on Netflix, unfortunately, that’s not going to happen for a very long time.

According to THR, the Harry Potter series is in the works at HBO Max, which effectively the WarnerMedia streaming service. Warner Bros. produced all eight Harry Potter movies.

It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out. It makes sense that WarnerMedia would be interested in a show based on one of the most popular book series of all time. The Harry Potter franchise is worth billions, and it’d be a poor business decision, truly, not to make a show set in this universe.

We’ve seen so many big book franchises turn into fantasy TV shows over the last few years, and even more are on the way. The Wheel of Time and Lord of the Rings shows are in the works at Amazon. Netflix has a bunch of stuff in the works, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Shadow and Bone, and more. Disney Plus has Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Children of Blood and Bone. 

The market is ready for a Harry Potter series, it seems, although JK Rowling’s transphobic views have turned a lot of fans off to Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and other projects she’s involved with.
