Potterheads, hold on to your broomsticks - this could be the news you've been waiting for! We may finally be getting a Harry Potter TV series. That's right, we're not jumping the gun - a report from Bloomberg suggests the show could be closer to reality than ever before, with Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. reportedly "close to solidifying a deal."

We all remember the magic that was the Harry Potter book series and subsequent movies. Who wouldn't want to relive those unforgettable adventures at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? This new series could give us an even deeper look into the wizarding world, and we are here for it! Fortunately, the report from Bloomberg reveals some details on what the new series could look like. The series would be part of Warner Bros' new streaming strategy, which, it was previously announced, will see the company rebrand its flagship service as simply 'Max'. As part of this strategy, the company is looking to create new content based on properties viewers are already familiar with, and with Harry Potter being one of the biggest entertainment franchises of all time, we'd say they're onto a winner with this one.

If the series is indeed in the works, it'll be fascinating to see how it pans out. The original seven books - plus the newly-released Broadway play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - are filled with magic, adventure, and intrigue, so there's already a wealth of material to work with. And while the movies were beloved by fans, many believe there were elements of the story that were left out - so perhaps this new series could finally fill in some of the gaps.

As for us, we'll be counting down the days until we can return to Hogwarts. We have no doubt that the Harry Potter reboot will be an absolute hit. The continued popularity of the franchise is a testament to the incredible storytelling of J.K. Rowling, and we can't wait to see where this new series takes us. Let the magic begin!
