In fact, they were previously eyeing The Cursed Child to retool the franchise’s direction, with the possibility of involving author J.K. Rowling in production.

The Warner Bros. TV boss continues on to say how the impact of the audience contributed greatly on the progression of the Harry Potter franchise's success and it is possible they will remain so in the potential spinoff series.

“What’s great is that you see how the audience is so engaged and so ready. Our unscripted team did a fantastic ‘Return to Hogwarts’ special for HBO last year, that resonated so tremendously, then we did a quiz show, ‘The Tournament of Houses’, that Helen Mirren was the host for. The audience is ready, they want to go, so we’re just [here] to figure out what the right next step is.”
