New Harry Potter Sequels Could Be On The Way, WarnerMedia Boss Suggests

We could be going back to Hogwarts in the future, if the head of WarnerMedia is anyone to go by.

It's been 10 years since we said goodbye to the likes of Harry, Ron and Hermione in the second instalment of The Deathly Hallows.

Even though we've had a highly successful stage production, a spinoff movie series and an upcoming TV show, it seems like there could be more pulled out of J.K. Rowling's world.

WarnerMedia Chief Jason Kilar told an investors conference that audiences could get another injection of magic.

"There's this little thing called Harry Potter, which is one of the most beloved franchises. And we're incredibly thankful to be able to partner with J.K. Rowling and so I would argue there's a lot of fun and potential there as well," Kilar told the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecommunications Conference, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

There was no elaboration as to what that could be, but it certainly means that we haven't seen the last of the wizarding world.

THR suggested if they were to go down the route of another movie, producers could take Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre production and plaster it onto the big screen.

The two-part play begins 19 years after the events of The Deathly Hallows and follows Harry Potter, now Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic, and his younger son, Albus Severus Potter, who is about to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

We're still set to have the third instalment to the Fantastic Beasts series released in the middle of next year. There's no telling how many more movies will be added to that franchise, however there are at least two more that are already in development.

Earlier this year, Potter fans were also screaming with joy at the thought of a TV series.

The series is said to be in early development with HBO Max, but no details have been leaked about the cast or crew.

Variety reports it's not even known what the new show will focus on and in what part of the Harry Potter timeline it will be set.

The Hollywood Reporter added that executives at HBO Max have 'engaged in multiple conversations with potential writers exploring various ideas that would bring the beloved property to television'.

Sources told the site that 'broad ideas' have been discussed at the early-stage meetings that have happened.
