It’s possible that Harry Potter will soon return to Hogwarts.

A deal that would bring HBO Max’s long-rumored “Harry Potter” television series to the small screen is on track to be concluded by Warner Bros. Discovery.

The show would be based on J.K. Rowling’s bestsellers, with each season focusing on a different book in the seven-book series.

An in-universe spin-off, like the “Fantastic Beasts” movies, would not serve as the basis for the potential series.

Rowling is in preliminary talks to join the project as a producer and would have a degree of creative involvement, but she would not be the primary creator or showrunner of the series.

The concept of one season per book suggests that the franchise would be an ongoing, years-long project from Warner Bros.

It is anticipated that the project will seek a writer once Rowling officially joins.

There have been rumors of a “Harry Potter” television series since January 2021, but Warner Bros. and HBO Max have both denied the rumors in the past.

“There are no ‘Harry Potter’ series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” Warner Brothers. and HBO Max said in a joint statement at the time.

In September 2022, when Warner Bros. Discovery International boss Gerhard Zeiler gave a talk at the Royal Television Society convention in London about the “development of franchises” for “Harry Potter,” rumors surfaced once more.

But in a statement to The Post at the time, HBO once more denied the possibility of new “Harry Potter programming.” The representative made it clear that Zeiler had only “spoke about the opening of the Tokyo Wizarding World” and “not about a series or films,” and that the statement from January 2021 “still stands.”

In January 2022, HBO Max released the “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” documentary, the most recent “Harry Potter” project, to commemorate the success of the series.

The eight “Harry Potter” film adaptations released by Warner Brothers. in total acquired more than $7.7 billion at the global box office.
