“Do I want a Harry Potter series? Of course!” Says the boss of HBO.
So what will be out in a few weeks Fantastic Beasts 3what direction will the saga take? Harry Potter after that ? The prequel trilogy did not meet with the same success as the original franchise and its 8 films. Warner Bros. could therefore be tempted to let the brand breathe, before bringing it back to life in another form.
It has been rumored for a while that a series taking place in the universe of Harry Potter could be developed for HBO Max, the studio’s streaming platform, which would thus fully benefit from the effect Wizaring World, to boost its subscriptions. She also organized last January this big meeting of former cast members, which caused a huge buzz. So when is the series Harry Potter ?

Not tomorrow, according to Casey Bloys, the boss of HBO, who comments in EW : “There is no agreement in place. There are no signed screenwriters. There is nothing”assures the content director, insisting that the rumors that have been circulating for a year are unfounded. “I can’t add anything and I can’t stop people from speculating…”
Despite everything, in the process, he lets out a little sentence that opens a real door: “Do I want a series Harry Potter ? Sure ! I would take more Harry Potter with joy. That would be great.”
We therefore understand that the HBO or HBO Max series project is not totally illusory. Everything is surely a question of time. The time that Warner Bros. think about what he wants to do with his franchise, after Fantastic Beasts.
