A Game of Thrones spin-off focused on Kit Harington’s fan-favourite character Jon Snow is in early development, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The spin-off is described as a sequel series, and Harington is reportedly already attached to return to the role if the project proceeds.
A Jon Snow spin-off set after the events of Game of Thrones’ divisive eighth-and-final season would be an interesting move from HBO, re-opening the door on the much-discussed final events of the original series. In the series finale, Snow was exiled from Westeros to the Night’s Watch, where he was last seen heading North of the Wall with the Wildlings.
This potential Jon Snow series is far from the only Game of Thrones spin-off in the pipe; in fact, it would be the seventh Game of Thrones project on the boil at HBO (not counting the prequel series House of the Dragon, which is in post-production and due to launch on August 21, 2022). Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin recently updated fans on a number of the planned live action and animated shows set in the GoT universe, cautioning that not every series was likely to get on the air but expressing his hopes that many would.
