    Give me the marauders at Hogwarts, or maybe something to do with the founders. I quite enjoy the "period" aspect of Fantastic Beasts (whatever the rest of the films' faults), so something more historical could be a lot of fun.
    Oh! Oh! A police procedural with an auror chasing down a dark wizard! A series about a quidditch team rising through the league! Let's see the original Triwizard tournaments!
    There's a lot of room for interesting stuff in this world, even without the vague ideas I'd be excited to see, and I do hope Rowling has enough "no-men" around her to contain some of her worser impulses.

      Yeah but, you know what's probably really easy and will definitely get viewers? Book to TV adaption.

        True, but I hold out some hope that Rowling has enough fondness for the existing films that she rejects that idea.
