Do you know what’s as exciting as visiting Fred and George’s joke shop on Diagon Alley? Watch James and Oliver Phelps host a travel series.
While we’re pretty sure Fred and George would have been great hosts of their own travel series if the Wizarding World included television, we’re thrilled to see the actors who portrayed them so beautifully start their own.
The show, which is called Fantastic Friends (we like the nod to fantastic beasts here), will premiere June 17, 2022 on Bell Media’s Cave streaming service. True to the style of James and Oliver Phelps, this will be no ordinary travel show. Not only will they travel the world and meet their famous friends, including Harry Potter former students Evanna Lynch and Bonnie Wright, but they will also be hosting fun and magical challenges. Sometimes we think they are Fred and George. The show will consist of six glorious episodes and has been picked up by some major streaming services like HBO Max and TVNZ. It will be available on HBO Max in July, while TVNZ subscribers can stream it from August 6.
Fans can expect great conversations, laughs and scenery. The twins will travel to places like Dubai, Saint Lucia, Iceland and Ireland. We can’t wait to see all the shenanigans the twins and their guests pull off on their travels. One thing is certain: the misdeeds will be managed.
