According to The Hollywood Reporter, the WarnerMedia-backed streaming giant is dead set on bringing the wonderful wizarding world to their streaming platform. The company has approached several writers to explore ideas on how to do such a thing and several of them with potential have begun to formulate.

“There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform”

A Harry Potter series would surely give them a leg up on everyone else.
