Harry Potter Max Series Potential Release Date
The Harry Potter series was officially confirmed in April 2023. Although HBO hasn’t announced an official release date, Deadline has announced that it should arrive in 2025/2026.
That would make sense, considering the series is still in the early stages of development. We’ll update this article with more information when we have it.
There will be over a decade of content, provided the show is successfully renewed year after year.
Cast and crew of the Harry Potter Max series
No cast members have been confirmed, but the main golden trio will likely consist of newcomers, just like Dan, Rupert and Emma were.
Casey Bloys, President and CEO of HBO and Max Content, said the following during the casting: “We didn’t go to the agencies. We have our own internal process where we thought about people but didn’t want to go out into the world. Now that the news is out… we’ll start taking care of the business.
HBO is currently trying to find a showrunner, but we know JK Rowling is on board as executive producer. This short story received a lot of backlash due to the author’s transphobic views. She will be joined by Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts.
No former Harry Potter actors have been confirmed at this time.
Plot Harry Potter HBO Max
Warner Bros. Discovery has confirmed that the new series will dive deep into the original story covered in all seven books. The show will be told over ten years, so possibly over seven seasons, defying longtime rumors of having one season per book.

Here is Warner’s official statement on the new show:
“The stories from each of Rowling’s Harry Potter books will become a decade-long series produced with the same epic craftsmanship, love and care that this global franchise is known for. The series will feature a new cast to lead a new generation of fans, full of fantastical detail, beloved characters and dramatic locations that Harry Potter fans have loved for over twenty-five years.
“Each season will be authentic to the original books and bring Harry Potter and these incredible adventures to new audiences around the world, while the original, classic and beloved films will remain central to the franchise and available to watch worldwide. entire.”
This means fans can expect to see characters and plot points that weren’t explored in the movies, such as Peeves, SPEW, and the Marauders backstory.
How to watch the new Harry Potter series
The show is in development for Max, HBO’s streaming service available in the United States, as well as Latin America and parts of Europe. In America, prices start from $9.99 per month for ad-supported content.
There’s no Max here in the UK – most shows are syndicated on Sky and Now. However, by the time this show comes out, Max may have expanded internationally. Either way, we’d expect a UK release to be considered, given the British heritage of this franchise.
