Harry Potter: Introducing Season 1 of EW’s BINGE

Think of us as your binge guide, but with opinions.

It’s been nearly 20 years since the world first met The Boy Who Lived, but Harry Potter mania is as strong as ever thanks to J.K. Rowling’s tireless tweeting, this summer’s debut of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which flies into theaters Nov. 18 and starts a new trilogy of films.

Enter the podcast that’ll help guide you through it all: EW’s Binge kicks off its first season with a look at the Harry Potter canon. Join EW’s Marc Snetiker and C. Molly Smith — two lifelong Potterheads and, let’s just say it, Slytherins — as they revisit both the books and films each week with interviews featuring some of the most memorable characters from the wizarding world, including Imelda Staunton (Professor Umbridge), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas), and those who brought the magic to life, including director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), film designers, and more.

Accio, nostalgia (sorry) as we dive deep into each Harry Potter installment with questions you’ve never asked, stories you’ve never heard, and things you’ve never noticed about Rowling’s world. The 10-episode series premieres Wed., Oct.12.

So make like Harry after a snitch and subscribe now! Send your questions and comments on Twitter to @marcsnetiker and @cmollysmith, or email binge@ew.com. EW’s Binge is produced by EW’s Cristina Everett and edited by Will Malnati of At Will Radio.

Mischief far from managed.
