Good news for Harry Potter fans, as Weasley twins James and Oliver Phelps are reuniting with their on-screen dad Mark Williams for an epic adventure on the road.

It’s been 12 years since the trio last appeared together for the final film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part two, but they’ll soon be back on screen for season two of Fantastic Friends.

If you’ve been living under a rock, Fantastic Friends follows James and Oliver – aka Fred and George Weasley – as they take on high-octane adventures with their celebrity friends.

Mark, who played Arthur Weasley in the franchise, will be joining the pair for all the action.

Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen is also on the bill for the upcoming instalment, as is The Sandman’s Corey Mylechreest, and The Fugitive’s Genesis Rodriguez.

Filming for the travelog series this time around took place in a sprawling variety of locations, ranging from Australia, Florida, and Chile, to the Swiss Alps and Singapore.

And of course, the thrilling activities are just as next level as we’d expect, with the duo and their guests taking on ice climbing, ghost hunting, snowmobiling and much more, all with a hint of magic.

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, the second season is even bigger than its predecessor with eight episodes instead of six.

‘Filming season two has been incredible fun,’ James enthused to Deadline.

‘We’ve travelled far and wide to destinations including Australia, Singapore and Chile, taking on all sorts of adventures. We even picked up motorbike licences so we could tour through the Alps with our old friend Stan Yanevski.

‘This season we’ve filmed eight episodes, so we’ve been able to travel with old friends from the Harry Potter movies and some newer friends we’ve made along the way.’
