CHICAGO — Your Hogwarts letter has arrived, wizards!
A multi-season television reboot of the “Harry Potter” series was announced Wednesday alongside HBO Max’s new streaming service, Max.
The news was confirmed on HBO Max’s Twitter with a short video featuring John Williams’ iconic score.
Each season will bring to life one of the seven books in the series. For those who never read the books, this means there will be more details included than what the movies left out (especially toward the end). This can help shed some light on plot points made unclear in the movies.
Controversial author and creator of the series, J. K. Rowling, confirmed her involvement with the series via her website.
The Warner Bros. Discovery show will be produced in association with Brontë Film and TV. Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts will join Rowling as executive producers.
Max will launch in the United States on May 23. It is unknown when the new “Harry Potter” series will air or who is being considered to star in the show.
