The "Harry Potter" series is what all fans of the wizard's adventures have been eagerly awaiting. MAX has revealed exciting details about the production.

Eight films are not the same as seven seasons, are they? "Harry Potter" enthusiasts should imagine this: at least six one-hour episodes, many previously overlooked details, updated special effects, and the return of beloved characters.

There are reasons to rejoice - of course, whether the production will meet expectations (and the "Harry Potter" fandom can be very demanding) remains to be seen. It's not wise to celebrate before the sun sets, but excitement is undoubtedly justified.

Who will take on the roles of the golden trio? Who will be cast as the iconic Albus Dumbledore? How will Voldemort be depicted? Will we finally see the backstory of the Gaunt family? Will the series include Ludo Bagman, Winky, Charlie Weasley, or other overlooked characters? These questions remain unanswered, but MAX has given us some hints. We now have more information about the upcoming "Harry Potter."

"Harry Potter" - we know the director and showrunner of the MAX series

"All aboard the Hogwarts Express! Francesca Gardiner and Mark Mylod will executive produce the new HBO Original Series, Harry Potter, with Gardiner serving as showrunner and Mylod directing multiple episodes. Coming soon to Max." reads the official press release.

If these names are unfamiliar, it might not longer be the case. Both Francesca Gardiner and Mark Mylod worked on the phenomenal show "Succession." Additionally, Gardiner is responsible for "Killing Eve" and "His Dark Materials." Mylod directed episodes of "Game of Thrones," "Shameless," and "The Last of Us," among others.

MAX promises that "Harry Potter" will be as faithful an adaptation of J.K. Rowling's saga as possible. The exact premiere date of the first season is still unknown.
