UPDATED: Is That Your Final Answer? “Harry Potter” Quiz Show Coming to HBO Max
In honor of 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, HBO Max, Cartoon Network, and TBS will air a retrospective quiz show. For five nights, witches and wizards will compete to prove how much they know.
Tom Ascheim, president of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics, explains what this quiz show is all about.
To celebrate the dedicated fans old and new who have passionately kept the Wizarding World magic alive in so many forms for decades, these exciting specials will celebrate their Harry Potter fandom in a must-see multiplatform TV event.
Having yet to be named, the show is already casting via WizardingWorld.com. Special guest stars are also reportedly being lined up to make appearances, but there is no confirmation yet as to who will be showing up. An audience-inclusive portion of the show will allow viewers to play from their homes as well.
This game show news comes months after rumors swirled around of a Harry Potter TV show from HBO Max. Sources confirmed that executives were in the extremely early stages and still working to find writers. However, there is no to-date confirmation of anything in the works Harry Potter-related over than the upcoming quiz show miniseries. But we can’t help wondering if this is just the start of potentially more Harry Potter shows.
An air date has yet to be determined for the Harry Potter five-episode quiz show. But it’s said to be known later this year.
