HBO recently proved that video game adaptations can be successful with the series The Last of Us. This is very well received by the community and now Harry Potter fans can also look forward to it, because according to reports HBO Max is developing a Hogwarts legacy series.
Hogwarts Legacy: Action RPG becomes a series
In early February, Hogwarts Legacy was released on multiple platforms, and while it’s had some teething troubles on PC, reviews of the game itself are mostly positive. You take on the role of a student who has just entered magic school to learn how to cast spells, brew potions and fight evil. It’s all set before Harry Potter, but arguably offers nonetheless enough stuff to make a series out of it.
HBO Max is said to be working on this already, but production is said to be in the early stages. Accordingly, there is no information and details, but one can assume that the upcoming series will also play before the original Harry Potter novels (source: GiantFreakinRobot).

Hogwarts Legacy: Does a series adaptation really have a chance of success?

It can be assumed that there will be a lot of criticism in the upcoming series. However, it may well be that HBO Max manages to create an exciting and exciting series that can ultimately delight fans around the world, just like the iconic movies.
