Harry Potter TV Series Coming, New Deal Signed
JK Rowling wrote a seven-series book following the life of Harry Potter, an orphaned wizard who ends up navigating the world of magic and witchcraft shortly after learning the truth about his parents and who he really is. While both the book series and the movies came to a satisfying ending, several spin-offs have allowed the franchise to continue to move forward for fans. With a massive fan base, it is no surprise that news of a TV series joining the franchise would be met with excitement. Fans, however, wonder what the TV series will be about. Moreover, will any beloved characters return?
According to The Sun, The Daily Mail reports JK Rowling has been in talks with Warner Bros’ new chief, David Zaslav, about the possibility of a TV series spin-off being added to the franchise. The report, however, claims this has gone beyond talking and the TV series is already in the works.
The original report claims a deal has already been signed for a Harry Potter TV Series and writers are currently hard at work on the premise of the series. As The Sun reminds us, JK Rowling currently owns all intellectual property rights to the Harry Potter franchise. So, she would have had to give a green light for the series to move forward.
