HBO Max Denies 'Harry Potter' TV Show Reports, But It's Seemingly Still Happening

Don’t get too excited yet about the Harry Potter television series because HBO Max and Warner Bros. have denied the rumors are true.

It was reported that a live-action series based on the Harry Potter world is in the works for the streaming service and that “broad ideas have been discussed,” according to THR.

Warner Bros. and HBO Max released a joint statement saying, ‚ÄúThere are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform.”

Variety is now reporting that despite the statement, “multiple sources have confirmed that the project is in the very early stages.”

It’s not clear what the focus of the show would be, but we’re pretty sure that fans will be interested in anything that is made. The franchise’s eight movies grossed nearly $8 billion at the worldwide box office and the two movies in the Fantastic Beasts spinoff series have grossed nearly $1.5 billion combined.
