HBO Max and Warner Bros. are still in the initial stage of choosing a story for turning into a TV series
With streaming services whipping up a storm, there are talks of making a Harry Potter TV series.
With HBO Max now offering Warner Bros a streaming platform, it is time for Harry Potter to join the ranks of prestige TV.
Warner Bros and HBO Max are mulling over live-action Harry Potter TV projects, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The article from THR did note that these conversations are in their very early stages, as no writers or talent are currently attached to any specific projects.
It appears as though executives at HBO Max and Warner Bros. are actively working on a way to bring the Harry Potter franchise to TV, and they are listening to pitches from various writers about how they can make that happen. At this time, there isn't a concrete answer or direction.
Executives from both HBO Max and Warner Bros. told THR that there isn't a specific series in any stages of development. The conversations about what story could be told with a TV series are what seem to be continuing.
So, while there isn't anything specific happening just yet, it is reassuring for fans to see that there are steps being taken to develop a Harry Potter TV series.
Aside from Harry's time at Hogwarts and the tale of Newt Scamander, the universe surrounding this franchise is wide open and filled with options for TV.
Most Harry Potter fans have been begging to see the story of the Marauders play out in a live-action format, which would shift the focus to a beloved group of students at Hogwarts a couple of decades before Harry, Ron, and Hermoine.
James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew created the Marauders Map and became known for their thrilling antics while at the wizarding school.
