With HBO Max reportedly working on a Harry Potter TV series, which stories from the Wizarding World could it cover? Let’s take a look.
Fans of the Wizarding World will get to visit it again thanks to HBO Max’s new TV show set in the Harry Potter universe, and here are the best stories it can tell. Back in 1997, readers were introduced to the Wizarding World through the novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the first in a series of seven books telling the story of the boy who lived and his journey from a “normal” kid mistreated by his uncle, aunt, and cousin, to one of the most skilled wizards to ever live. Harry came across different obstacles through the series, but the biggest one was Lord Voldemort, the darkest wizard of all who tried to kill him when he was a baby, which made Harry the only person to have survived the killing curse… twice.
The Harry Potter books were a huge success and quickly built a solid fanbase, and it didn’t take long for his story to make the jump to the big screen. The Harry Potter movie saga was released between 2001 and 2011, with the final novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, being split into two movies. Although that was the end of Harry’s story on the big screen, the Wizarding World continues living thanks to the Fantastic Beasts movie series, beginning with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2016. However, these movies are separate from Harry’s story, as they are set many years before he was even born, though they share some big characters like Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald.

Now, while the future of Fantastic Beasts 3 remains unclear, the Wizarding World will expand to the realm of streaming thanks to HBO Max and a Harry Potter TV series. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, reports state that the series is in very early development, with both HBO Max and Warner Bros. denying the claims for now, but that could change in the near future. If a Harry Potter series is to happen at HBO Max, it doesn’t mean that it has to cover Harry and Voldemort’s story all over again, as the novels established other characters and stories that can easily be adapted into a TV series, further expanding this universe and the stories of other characters besides Harry. Here are the best Wizarding World stories the Harry Potter series can tell.
Harry Potter And The Cursed Child
A somewhat natural step would be to adapt the “eighth story in the Harry Potter series” which is actually a two-part play: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Written by Jack Thorne and based on a story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place 19 years after the events of Deathly Hallows, with Harry now working as Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic. Meanwhile, his younger son, Albus Severus Potter, prepares to attend Hogwarts, and along with his best friend, Scorpius (ironically, Draco Malfoy’s son), comes face to face with dark forces that threaten the fate of the world and could be linked to Voldemort himself. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child made its way to West End, Broadway, Melbourne, San Francisco, and will arrive at Hamburg, Toronto, and Tokyo in 2021/2022, and while it isn’t exactly a fan-favorite story, if it’s adapted properly it could be an interesting story to explore that also introduces a new generation of wizards, linked to the most popular and beloved characters from Harry’s story.
