Kit Harington has been cast in the fan-favorite role of Jon Snow in the first prospective ‘Thrones’ project to take place after the events of the first series. You know nothing about HBO’s plans after Game of Thrones.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has begun production on its first sequel to its blockbuster fantasy drama, a live-action spin-off series focused on fan-favorite character Jon Snow.

If a series is developed, Kit Harington is expected to reprise the role. The actor received two Emmy nominations for his depiction of an action hero who tries to preserve his family’s moral beliefs in a harsh environment.

During the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow learnt his actual identity was Aegon Targaryen, a potential successor to the Iron Throne. He was exiled from Westeros in the series finale and travelled North of the Wall with the Wildlings to leave his former life behind.

Harington has starred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, co-starring in 2021’s Eternals, since concluding his work spanning eight seasons of Thrones. He has recently played Henry V in the National Theater’s live rendition of the play. On Game of Thrones, he was recognised for enduring some of the show’s most difficult filming, including the last season’s infamous 11 weeks of winter night shots in Northern Ireland.

The decision represents an exciting new route in HBO’s treatment of author George R.R. Martin’s fantasy realm, similar to how Disney+ manages its Star Wars and Marvel properties, where the streamer has had success introducing character-focused spinoff series such as WandaVision and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Perhaps most boldly, the idea would upend Thrones’ final season as the final word on the fates of the remaining characters in HBO’s most popular and Emmy-winning series of all time. In theory, the initiative may pave the way for other surviving characters from the Game of Thrones world, such as Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), and Brienne of Tarth (Brienne of Tarth) (Gwendoline Christie).

This implies that, in addition to the forthcoming House of the Dragon prequel series, which premieres on August 21, there are now seven Thrones projects in the pipeline. Dragon is set around 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and depicts the narrative of a civil war inside House Targaryen.

10,000 Ships (a.k.a. Nymeria) with showrunner Amanda Segel, 9 Voyages (a.k.a. The Sea Snake) with showrunner Bruno Heller, and Dunk and Egg with showrunner Steve Conrad are among HBO’s other live-action prequels at different stages of production.

Three animated prequel projects are also in the works, including The Golden Empire, which is set in the China-inspired realm of Yi Ti.
