New Harry Potter TV series finally gets release date

New Harry Potter TV series finally gets release date

Potterheads finally know how much longer they'll have to wait for the new show

The new Harry Potter TV series has finally got a release date.

It feels like ages since HBO Max and Discovery+ officially announced a reboot of the Wizarding World was happening, and it’s still going to be a while until Potterheads can watch it.

This new show will be based on all seven instalments of the popular books, with each season said to follow each instalment.

And it was previously revealed that the Harry Potter series will allow audiences to discover their beloved story in a whole new way. But again, you’re going to have to wait.

Warner Bros. Discovery has now announced that the new TV series will land on the Max streaming service in 2026, as reported by IGN.

Speaking during a financial call, CEO David Zaslav spoke about the much anticipated Harry Potter project.

“We’ve not been shy about our excitement around Harry Potter. The last film was made more than a dozen years ago,” he said.

“I was in London a few weeks ago with Casey [Bloys, President, HBO series] and Channing [Dungey, Chairman and CEO of the Warner Bros. Television Group] and we spent some real time with J. K. [Rowling] and her team. Both sides are thrilled to be reigniting this franchise. Our conversations were great, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead.

"We can’t wait to share a decade of new stories with fans around the world on Max. We’re aiming for a debut in 2026.”

HBO and MAX content CEO Casey Bloys previously opened up about the new series and what it will look like for fans.

"We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to discover Hogwarts in a whole new way," he said.

"Harry Potter is a cultural phenomenon and it is clear there is such an enduring love and thirst for the Wizarding World.

"In partnership with Warner Bros. Television and J.K. Rowling, 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."

It's been well over a decade now since the final Harry Potter film, with Daniel Radcliffe, of course, in the titular role.

Many fans have been hoping he'd crop up in the series in some kind of cameo role but that isn't look likely.

Radcliffe previously told he's 'definitely not seeking it out in any way'.

"But I do wish them, obviously, all the luck in the world and I'm very excited to have that torch passed. But I don't think it needs me to physically pass it."
