Today marks the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter – a novel that had humble beginnings in a Glasgow café, and became a cultural touchstone for a generation. It’s been adapted to film, spawned a spinoff series in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and seen an acclaimed theatrical follow-up.

And yet, rather strangely, one medium the franchise has never entered is television. As Harry Potter enters its second decade, it’s surely only a matter of time before the Wizarding World appears on the small screen…

It’s the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter today! I wrote this short piece by way of celebration.

My thoughts on Harry Potter – or, more accurately, my thoughts on JK Rowling – have become decidedly more complex since June 2017, though I imagine that’s true of a lot of people. I’ve also just noticed a mistake in the above – Harry Potter would be entering it’s third decade, wouldn’t it? Not second.

Anyway, enjoy – I suppose – this relatively uncomplicated set of thoughts on what some neat Harry Potter TV shows might be. We’re guaranteed to get one within the next ten years or so anyway – I suspect Harry Potter is going to become increasingly like the Disney Star Wars – so, you know, let’s see if I’m right.
