Each season of this decade-long series will explore one of the seven books, diving deep into the magical lore that has captivated audiences for over twenty-five years.

In April, HBO CEO Casey Bloys said: "We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to discover Hogwarts in a whole new way. Harry Potter is a cultural phenomenon and it is clear there is such an enduring love and thirst for the Wizarding World."

"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."
