Two New Harry Potter Specials Announced For HBO Max


Two New Harry Potter Specials Announced For HBO Max

The Harry Potter franchise is close to a lot of peoples' hearts. The adventures of Harry, Hermione, and Ron will stick with many as they, too, longed to get a letter to Hogwarts or a glimpse into a magical world. Now, HBO Max is revisiting the franchise for two specials to celebrate the legacy of the world of Harry Potter and its fans.


Comicbook spotted a post that went up on the Wizarding World website announcing the two specials coming this year. The specials are being produced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter film - wow, how has it been 20 years? In any case, the two shows are based in reality, so we're not seeing a revival of the mainline Harry Potter series - keep looking out for the next Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them film, for that.

Harry Potter fans have even more content to look forward to after these specials, as Hogwarts Legacy is on its way. Here's a trailer to remind you what's in store for that game...



The first show will be a Harry Potter quiz. It's currently untitled, but will be a competition series that will challenge fans to "prove their knowledge". This special will be featured across HBO Max, Cartoon Network and TBS, and then shown on wider international platforms at a later date. To enter you must be 14 years old and over, and there are a load of other terms and conditions you can find on the entry form if you reckon you've got what it takes to win.

The second special follows on from the quizzes and will be a "retrospective" look at the series. Other than that, we have no idea what's in store for this portion - but it'll likely be interviews or old, behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of the original movie, showing us how far the Wizarding World has come.

Harry Potter fans are in for a treat in 2022 as Hogwarts Legacy, an open-world Harry Potter RPG, is set to release. Originally pinned for a 2021 launch, the game got delayed which fans of the franchise welcomed. Though it's having its development issues, the game could be the closest many come to exploring Hogwarts themselves.
