Jon Snow Game of Thrones story is not ready yet … and Kit Harington himself helps write the next chapter.
George RR Martin, who wrote the novels Game of Thrones is based on and executive-produced the HBO fantasy epic, confirmed in a blog post on Thursday that Harington will reprise his role as Jon Snow in an upcoming spinoff. He also revealed the working title for the spinoff: Snow.
Harington came up with the concept for the spinoff, Martin adds: “It was Kit Harington who brought the idea to us. I can not tell you the names of the writers / showrunners, as that has not yet been released for release … but Kit also brought them in, his own team, and they’re great.
The Jon Snow spinoff was first reported last week, with Harington returning to the role he played for eight seasons Thrones. The spinoff is presumably a sequel, instead of a prequel, like the others Thrones spinoffs currently in the works. (The first, House of the Dragondebut on HBO in August.) In the Thrones series finale, Jon Snow ran away from his kingdom after murdering his beloved Daenerys and returning to the Night’s Watch, heading north of the Wall with his direwolf Ghost.
Harington’s costar Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys, also confirmed the spinoff news in an interview with the BBC. Harington “told me about it,” she says. “And I know it exists. It happens … It’s made by Kit, as far as I can understand, so he’s in it from the ground up. That’s what you’ll see, hopefully, when it happens, is certified by Kit Harington. ”
