Kit Harington Could Return as Jon Snow in a Game of Thrones Sequel Series

Jon Snow’s story just isn’t over yet.

HBO is reportedly within the early development stages of a live-action Game of Thrones spin-off focused on Jon Snow, per The Hollywood Reporter. Kit Harington, who portrayed the moody hero through the unique series’ eight seasons, would reprise the role if the show moves forward.

HBO and Harington’s reps haven’t yet addressed the reports after THR broke the news on Thursday night, but three years after the epic fantasy series took its final bow (to many viewers’ dissatisfaction), fans are likely desperate to discover in the event that they’ll have one other likelihood with their favorite sword-wielding bastard. While we wait, here’s what we all know to date.

What would the series be about?

All we all know from THR’s report is that the potential series would happen after the events in GoT. The unique series finale—if you happen to recall; if not, spoiler alert!—saw Jon exiling himself to the Wall (which is now destroyed) and joining the Wildlings up North. So what happens next?

As a refresher: By this point, Jon knows that his real name is Aegon Targaryen and that his parents are Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. The Night King has been defeated within the Battle of Winterfell. Jon has killed Daenerys Targaryen, his ally-turned-lover, to save lots of the remainder of Westeros from her fury because the Mad Queen (which also didn’t sit well with many viewers). The Iron Throne has been destroyed by Drogon. And Bran, sigh, is now king.

Who’s in it?

Harington’s return as Jon Snow is the one potential casting announcement reported to date.

But when the series moves forward, there might be room to bring back some old faces from GoT. Surviving characters include: Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), now Queen within the North; Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), who could perhaps return from her travels west of Westeros; Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who’s the brand new Hand of the King; Jon’s bestie Sam (John Bradley), who became a maester and writer of A Song of Ice and Fire; Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), who got promoted to move of the Kingsguard; Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju), who’s seen with Jon in the ultimate shot of the series; and, sure, even Bran.

In the mean time, these cameos are all speculative, but little doubt they’d delight some fans if confirmed.

What other GoT projects are within the works?

The primary and most distinguished in the meanwhile is House of the Dragon, a prequel series following House Targaryen that’s set 300 years before the events in GoT. It is going to premiere in August on HBO.

THR reports that including the Jon Snow project, there are seven other GoT spin-offs under way. There are live-action prequels, including 10,000 Ships, which might follow Princess Nymeria; 9 Voyages, which follows the adventurer Lord Corlys Velaryon; and Dunk and Egg, about Ser Duncan the Tall and his trickster squire, Egg. Plus, three animated prequel projects.
