A Hogwarts Legacy TV show is in development, says insider

A Hogwarts Legacy TV show is in development, says insider

A Hogwarts Legacy TV show is reportedly in development at HBO Max, according to one insider.

As I’m sure you’re aware, Hogwarts Legacy is a colossal success despite the controversy. In recent years, author JK Rowling has come under fire for making repeated transphobic comments. While she is not directly involved in the creation of Hogwarts Legacy, she will profit from its sales leading many to boycott the title.

Despite this, Hogwarts Legacy has been a major commercial success. It is already the most successful Harry Potter game of all time with many declaring Hogwarts to be their favourite video game location ever. It’s been out for mere weeks and already, players have amassed a whopping 267 million in-game hours played. Fans are hoping for a sequel which now seems likely according to one developer, but there may be even more Hogwarts Legacy media on the way.

According to one insider, a Hogwarts Legacy TV show is reportedly in the works at HBO Max. As reported by Giant Freakin Robot, a source has claimed that the series is in the early stages of development and the website does have a reliable track record of gaining exclusives. Details are thin on the ground but it can be assumed that the TV series would follow the same storyline as the game.

If you’re yet to dive in, Hogwarts Legacy is set in the 1800s - years before the arrival of Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Players star as a brand new fifth-year student who suddenly joins Hogwarts after learning that they can wield ancient magic, something which is incredibly rare. This attracts unwanted attention from some, let’s say, evil individuals. I won’t say anymore. It’s a story best experienced as you play.

Hogwarts Legacy may already be a success but it hasn’t even completed its full roll out. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will launch on 4 April with the Nintendo Switch version following on 25 July. A TV show sounds like an exciting addition though.
