J.K. Rowling fans, start getting your popcorn ready, because the three-part BBC mini-series adaptation of 'The Casual Vacancy' is officially coming to HBO!
Set to air on April 29th and 30th, the mini-series adapts the same-titled novel which was the Harry Potter author's first new work after completing her wizarding tale, as well as her first novel for adults. And if you haven't read the book, though I'm certain the mini-series will have changes to certain material, let me re-stress that it is definitely a story for adults. There are some very mature and dark subject matters tackled in this story, and no wand-waving or magic to masquerade behind either. While I certainly enjoyed the novel and look forward to this premiere, it's definitely not going to be of interest to every Harry Potter fan.
If you're a fan of the kinds of characters Rowling can bring to life however, strap yourselves in for what should definitely prove to be one wild ride!
