A “Game of Thrones” spinoff series based around Jon Snow is in early development at HBO.
English actor Kit Harington is attached to reprise the role of Jon Snow in the project, which would take place after the events of “Game of Thrones” — potentially opening up what many thought was an iron-clad ending to the wildly popular series.
In the final season of “Game of Thrones”, Snow learns his true identity and the possibility of being an heir to the Iron Throne. The series concluded with his exile from Westeros as he rides into the Haunted Forest with Ghost and the Wildlings to begin a new life.
On the other hand, HBO’s upcoming spinoff “House of the Dragon”, which is set 200 years before the original series, is set to premiere on August 21.
Other “Game of Thrones” spinoffs in development include “Tales of Dunk and Egg”, “10,000 Ships”, “9 Voyages”, “Flea Bottom”, and an animated series.
Harington was nominated for two Emmys, in supporting actor and lead actor in a drama series, during his time on “Game of Thrones.”
After the series ended in 2019, Harington starred in Marvel’s “Eternals” as Dane Whitman, appeared in an episode of Amazon’s “Modern Love”, and headlined Shakespeare’s “Henry V” at the Donmar Warehouse in London.
