The wait is almost over! J.K. Rowling recently revealed that the TV series based on her books is almost here.

While the wonderful world of Harry Potter isn’t coming to our TV screens anytime soon (HP has seven movies and a prequel film series, so that’s okay), another group of Rowling’s novels is getting the small screen adaptation treatment.

It was previously announced that Rowling’s Cormoran Strike novels were acquired by HBO and being made into a TV series (limited) in both the US and Canada and now the author has teased when the show will debut…well, sort off.



“The TV series won’t be too long now and I think/hope you’ll love it,” Rowling tweeted on Sunday (May 28). “I’ve seen all but one episode and I’m delighted!”

Okay, this really doesn’t give us an exact timeline, but it does make us even more curious and excited about the three-part event. Rowling has watched almost all of the episodes according to this tweet and she approves, so you know it’s going to be good!

Strike will star Tom Burke as Cormoran Strike and Holliday Grainger as Robin Ellacott. It will focus on the life of the private investigator, Cormoran, as he tries to uncover whether or not a supermodel’s sudden death was actually a murder.

Sounds good right?

Strike will premiere sometime this fall on BBC.
