Rumours of a new Harry Potter series have been circumnavigating the globe for years, but this time around, the talk is no longer just rumours. Warner Bros have confirmed their ambitious retelling of one of the most beloved film franchises of all time while assuring Potter fans that the new Harry Potter Series will be a "faithful adaptation". 

According to Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO of HBO & Max Content, "This new Max Original series will dive deep into each of the iconic books that fans have continued to enjoy for all of these years." Bloys also confirmed that the series will run for 10 consecutive years - wowsa!

Reimagining all seven of the books across 10 years' worth of episodes is no mean feat. Warner Bros. invited a select group of creatives to pitch their ideas of what the new series will entail. The Last Kingdom's Martha Hillier, Teenage Bounty Hunters' Kathleen Jordan, The Devil's Hour's Tom Moran, and The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes' Michael Lesslie are among the creatives who are set to pen the brilliant new Harry Potter TV Series.

Accio, Potter writers!
