Francesca Gardiner and Mark Mylod on board Harry Potter series

HBO's Harry Potter series has roped in the director and showrunner for the long-developing series.

Francesca Gardiner will take up the roles of writer and showrunner of the series, while Mark Mylod will direct. It is worth noting that the duo are Emmy winners for HBO's Succession series. Gardiner served as a member of the show's producing team, and Mylod produced and directed it.

Welcoming them on board, Harry Potter creator JK Rowling said she found a "genuine passion" in them while interviewing. She expressed hope that the show will "more than live up to expectations" after going through Francesca's pilot script and hearing Mark's vision.

The details of who is going to play the roles played by Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint will be announced at a later date. Though a date for the show's streaming debut hasn't been officially announced, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said earlier this year that a 2026 debut was the target.
