Harry Potter Series Reboot News

Friday | 02/02/2024  by Lars Hindsley — When Warner Bros. Discovery announced at its Max streaming event in April 2023 a new TV series adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s seven Harry Potter books would be rebooted as an original series on Max, fans had one question. Would it be a deeper more accurate telling of the books or would show runners use source material as a jumping off point?

The latest news indicates it will not only remain a faithful dive into the iconic saga. It will  span over 10 years with a budget on the scale of Game of Thrones series, House of the Dragon — and the new Harry Potter series will not be produced in a season-per-book format. We will definitely be watching child actors grow up before our eyes once again. A lot has changed since the 2023 announcement. 


If this ambitious project succeeds, Warner Bros. Discovery has the freedom to explore every detail of the Harry Potter universe, however it’s also been made clear the Fantastic Beasts series will not be explored.

Questions & Answers:

  • Will this be a re-imagining of the Harry Potter Books?

    • It will be a deep, faithful adaptation of all seven Harry Potter books, spanning 10 consecutive years.
  • Who is the new creative team?

    • Things can change but at present creatives like Martha Hillier, Kathleen Jordan, Tom Moran, Michael Lesslie, and notably, Francesca Gardiner from “Succession,” have pitched their visions. J.K. Rowling is involved in the pitching process.
  • When will it be released?

    • Expected around 2025/26, aligning with Warner Bros. Discovery’s revamp of its streaming service.
  • Which actors are starring?

    • No one should expect the original child actors to reprise their original roles. New actors will play the main characters; casting will follow the selection of a showrunner.
  • Will J.K. Rowling be involved?

    • Yes, Rowling has creative control and will be an executive producer, ensuring the series remains true to her vision.

“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. — J.K.Rowling

This series represents a significant expansion of the Harry Potter universe into long-form television, promising to capture the detailed storytelling and magical essence of the original books. With a blend of new talent and adherence to the source material, Warner Bros. Discovery aims to enchant a new generation of viewers while satisfying long-time fans of the wizarding world.
