‘Harry Potter’ TV Series Targets 2026 HBO Max Debut; J.K. Rowling Has Met With Execs

It’s been 13 years since we last had Harry Potter on the big screen, and for those missing the iconic book series, it will be adapted into a Max series set for a 2026 premiere, as announced in a recent Warner Bros. earnings call. The series will be a reboot starring a brand-new cast, setting its sights for seven seasons of Harry Potter.

Author J.K. Rowling, who is a controversial figure with her transphobic tweets, has met with HBO executives to discuss the show, and CEO David Zaslav had this to say: “We spent some real time with J.K. and her team. Both sides are just thrilled to be reigniting this franchise. Our conversations were great, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead. We can’t wait to share a decade of new stories with fans around the world on Max.”

Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry in the films, expressed that he would not be seeking out the role or making a cameo in the series, but wished the series luck on adapting the books. And it looks like the Harry Potter TV series has ambitious plans, with a seven-season saga being discussed. Each season will adapt one Harry Potter book, much like Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians show.

News of a reboot was first announced in 2023, and more details have surfaced in the earning call, though specifics on directors and casting remains unknown. In the meantime, fans in Singapore can get into the Harry Potter spirit with the Wizarding World experience.
