It has been over eight years since the last Harry Potter film came out, and in that time the Wizarding World has still continued to dominate pop culture. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a stage play which follows Albus Potter, Harry's son, opened at the Palace Theater in London back in 2016. Duplicate productions have opened in New York and Australia to massive success. The Fantastic Beasts franchise which follows magizoologist Newt Scamander in the 1930s and 40s, has released two of the scheduled five films, with the third slated to be released November 2021. 

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite are both mobile games made between Portkey Games, a gaming subsidiary of Warner Bros. dedicated to making exclusively Wizarding World games, and Jam City, and Niantic respectively. Both games have been massive successes with Hogwarts Mystery going on to win the 2018 Dragon Award for Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Mobile Game.

It appears the Wizarding World, isn't stopping there, according to sources close to We Got This Covered, a Harry Potter prequel television series is in the very early stages of development at Warner Bros. for their upcoming streaming service. From what is known the show will take place at Hogwarts and around Europe. Plot details are all being kept under lock and key, but it is expected that the show will follow all new characters, with the only connection to Harry Potter being that it's set in the same universe as the books.

It is unknown if the show will actually go into production, but in the meantime Wizarding fans will simply have to satiate themselves with the weekly updates to Hogwarts Mystery, and of course the Wizarding World theme parks at Universal.
