Termed as the greatest fan competition in Wizarding World history, TBS and Cartoon Network are hosting Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses. With a premiere on Sunday, Nov. 28, the four-part special event, hosted by Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren, features celebrity fans and Harry Potter film alumni as it showcases Wizarding World fandom on a never-before-seen scale.

The next battle in the epic Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses competition series airs on Sunday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on TBS and Cartoon Network. Vincent Sotaso, from Riverbank, is representing Ravenclaw in this epic one-of-a-kind tournament.

The bracket-style competition features fans competing for their Hogwarts house in teams of three. Houses go head to head in four epic battles answering hundreds of Wizarding World trivia questions with help from the live audience to unveil which house knows the intricately detailed universe like the back of their hand. Winning teams of each round will advance to the grand finale to determine who will take home the Tournament of Houses championship trophy.

Along with the spectacular trophy and ultimate bragging rights, the winning house will be awarded with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Wizarding World locations across the East Coast.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, in association with Warner Horizon alongside Robin Ashbrook and Yasmin Shackleton of theoldschool. Following its linear airing, the special event series will also premiere on HBO Max early next year.

The Sunday, Dec. 5 episode is “Ravenclaw vs. Slytherin”; the blockbuster battle of the Houses of Hogwarts sees the wise and witty Ravenclaws go up against the proud and ambitious Slytherins in a test of Wizarding World knowledge. Only one team can claim an automatic place in the grand finale, which is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 19.
