New Harry Potter TV series in the works 

American streaming service HBO Max confirmed earlier this year a new Harry Potter TV series is in the works.

The series will be a “faithful adaptation” of the world-famous books written by Rowling, who will serve as executive producer.

It will feature a brand new cast separate from the movies, while staying “authentic to the original books”, and is aimed at bringing the wizarding world to new audiences.

HBO Max said the series would be produced with “the same epic craft, love and care this global franchise is known for”.
