Get ready, Harry Potter fans. It looks like the network that's responsible for shows like Supernatural and Riverdale will be tackling the wonderful world of Harry Potter next.

The popular network announced their plans to air a documentary called Harry Potter: A History of Magic, featuring an actual museum exhibit under the same name. 

According to Pottermore, the documentary originally aired on BBC where it officially premiered later last year. 

While it's technically covering a museum exhibit, don't let that deter you from watching the documentary. Giving a behind-the-scene looks at the classic, the documentary will feature some of the most interesting Harry Potter-related items. Plus, the exhibit—and documentary—also show some of the artifacts from the muggle world. Not to mention, there are also items J.K. Rowling contributed herself. 

That's not even the best part: The documentary was narrated by someone actually in the HP-world. 

The documentary was narrated by Imelda Staunton, who is best known for her role as Dolores Umbridge in the fifth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phenoix. While Umbridge may not have been the most well-liked in the series, we still think it's cool that she narrated the film. 

Be sure to catch Harry Potter: A History of Magic when it airs on the CW Wednesday, April 11 at 8/7c.

Check out a trailer for the documentary below!
