Everyone knows the best school for witchcraft and wizardry is Hogwarts, which is in England. But wizards aren’t only in that country. As we saw in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, there are wizarding schools all over the world. In fact, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling recently said there are 11 across the globe.

Boone, Warner Bros. and CBS Films are reportedly talking to Showtime about airing an 8-part miniseries of The Stand that would act as a lead up to The Stand movie, which would hit theaters after the series ends.
