Harry Potter Saga Coming to USA Network and SYFY Summer 2018!

Harry Potter Coming to USA Network Summer 2018!
Are you ready for magic this summer? Get ready Potterheads! Harry Potter is coming back to television!

In 2017, fans learned the popular and beloved Harry Potter weekends on FreeForm would cease to air starting January 2018 due to a new contract negotiation with NBC Universal. As a consolation fans could start streaming the films on HBO, and hold onto the hope when NBC Universal's channels - on its sister stations USA Network, SYFY, Bravo, NBC - would air the movies .

That's about change Potterheads! During the May 1st 2018 airing of the wrestling programme WWE Smackdown, a new commercial aired for Harry Potter's first arrival to the USA Network. The small advert included Buckbeak's flight from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban followed by the words The Magic Begins - This Summer.

As USA Network has been doling out previews of Harry Potter casting a spell over the summer, it now looks like we're getting closer to a bigger event than we anticipated on two networks. And its  official website has updated its Harry Potter homepage with the new J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World logo and a brief synopsis of what lies ahead:
From the first letter to the final battle, experience the Wizarding World’s epic clash of good versus evil. Brave heroes Harry Potter and Newt Scamander come up against the Wizarding World’s dark forces and face their fears on USA. Become enchanted for the first time, or experience the magic all over again.

Gather around with your friends, chocolate frogs, and butterbeers because both USA Network and SYFY will be airing Harry Potter marathons. Capturing a similar idea from FreeForm, the channels will air the movies now known as Wizarding Weekends to celebrate all eight movies.

The first Wizarding Weekend kicks off July 13th! Broadway World reportsALL eight films of the Harry Potter series will air starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on Friday, July 13th 8pm est and ends with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2 on Sunday, July 15th. A special encore of both parts will air Monday, July 16th at 2pm est.

Both USA Network and SYFY have been promoting Wizarding Weekends on twitter and their official websites. Check out the first official tv spot below and get ready to return home to Hogwarts!
