When J.K. Rowling first released Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, nobody could have predicted the influence her words would have on millions of children and adults across the world. Harry Potter is a bona-fide cultural phenomenon but, unfortunately, the series is over. There are no more tales of Harry, Ron, and Hermione to enjoy and Pottermore revelations can only satisfy for so long. If you can't get enough of the franchise, there are plenty of movies and TV shows like Harry Potter full of magic to quench your cravings. 

If you're wondering what to watch after Harry Potter, you may be enticed by sagas of precocious kids and teens grappling with magic and supernatural beings. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is another cult sensation and The Chronicles of Narnia film franchise is sure to delight Harry Potter fans.
