The Wizarding World may be headed to HBO.

The network is nearing a deal to reboot Harry Potter by turning J.K. Rowling's novels into a television series, according to a bombshell report from Bloomberg. The idea would be for every season to be based on one of Rowling's seven original Potter books, allowing for more time to explore the details there wasn't room for in the eight films released from 2001 through 2011.
