In case you missed it, a new Harry Potter series is reportedly in development and is set to air on HBO Max. But what will be the premise of the new Wizarding World spin-off? There is a possibility that the upcoming show will finally be the Marauders prequel that Potterheads have been waiting for.

It was previously reported that one of the biggest plans for the Harry Potter franchise is a new original series that will air on HBO Max. Although the news itself was not confirmed by Warner Bros., fans were delighted to know that there is new Wizarding World content on the horizon.

But what exactly will the new Harry Potter series be about? Most Potterheads believe it is finally time to explore the origins of the Marauders who were part of Harry's tragic story.

The Marauders were made up of four Hogwarts students who were best friends and were always up for mischief. James Potter (Harry's father), Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew loved playing tricks and together, they created the Marauders Map that was presented to Harry in Prisoner of Azkaban.


Naturally, a prequel focusing on the Marauders won't be just about their tricks. It could also reintroduce Harry's mother Lily as well as a young Severus Snape. However, this time we'll be able to see exactly what happened to these wizards when they were still students at Hogwarts.

We're loving the idea of getting a Marauders prequel series on HBO Max considering that every Potterhead has always been curious about these characters. However, it is important to point out that the show has not yet been officially announced so it's best to take it with a grain of salt.
