It’s one thing when there are only rumors swirling around for a new possible sequel of your favorite show. But it’s another thing if it means an iconic character like Jon Snow will be coming back for his own spinoff series. And the series author and a
co-star Dragon Queen confirm it’s happening. Whether or not you’re optimistic about one of the four Game of Thrones spinoffs in development, it must give at least some comfort to know that Snow himself is the one calling the shots, at least for the one he’s starring in. Those closest to Kit Harington in the GOT universe spoke out about his involvement in the upcoming sequel to Game of Thrones with the working title Snow.
George R.R. Martin confirmed on his personal blog that Snow is coming … but not for a while. Describing the Hollywood Reporter piece as “largely correct,” he confirmed that the working title for the series is Snow and that it has been in development “almost as long as the other three” GOT spinoffs. Martin reassured fans that he is involved with all the animated shows and four spinoffs; the latter are “still in the script stage.” While Martin is skeptical about the scripts becoming a fully formed series, a Queen (of Dragons) is more optimistic.
Emilia Clarke weighed in on the Snow spinoff and revealed that it was Harington’s idea and he had brought in his own team (including showrunners and writers) to the project. She told the BBC that he had told her all about it and that “it’s been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he’s in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.” Clarke also laughs when asked if she’d reprise her role, stating that she thinks she’s “done” being a Targaryen, for now. Maybe seeing Harington in costume will convince her to come back.
