About the show
Nineteen years after Harry, Ron and Hermione saved the wizarding world, they’re back on a new adventure – this time, joined by a new generation that has only just arrived at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Producers say audiences should “prepare for spectacular spells, a mind-blowing race through time and an epic battle to stop mysterious forces, all while the future hangs in the balance”.
