Kit Harington Reportedly Created His Jon Snow GoT Spinoff Series for HBO

Game of Thrones alum Emilia Clarke recently appeared to confirm the Jon Snow sequel series starring Kit Harington is indeed happening.

News of a Game of Thrones sequel series centred on Jon Snow emerged but thus far has not been officially confirmed by HBO Max or any of its representatives. Audiences may be able to rest assured that the reports are accurate, thanks to series alum Emilia Clarke.

In an interview with the BBC, Clarke, who remains friends with Jon Snow actor Kit Harington, was asked about the reports and she responded, “He has told me about it. And I know it exists. It’s happening.”

The series was reported as being in development at HBO, with Harington attached to star. Clarke, however, revealed he is more involved in the upcoming project than he had been in Game of Thrones. “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.”

As mentioned, HBO has not officially confirmed the series, but it did acknowledge the news on social media, offering only a small response involving an image of Harington as Jon Snow from the first season of Game of Thrones, and the caption, “I know nothing.”

In the controversial final season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow, previously revealed to be Aegon Targaryen, assassinated Daenerys and witnessed the destruction of the Iron Throne. Following the end of Daenerys’ conquest, the disappearance of Drogon and the annihilation of the Night King and his White Walkers, Jon Snow was exiled from the remaining Six Kingdoms and headed North beyond the Wall, along with the Free Folk, as the new King in the North.

The Game of Thrones fanbase was vocal about its displeasure, criticizing the series for how far its characters had deviated from those depicted in both George R.R. Martin’s novels and earlier seasons of the show, as well as the unsatisfying conclusions to certain subplots, including that of Jon Snow.

Harington has responded to the criticism of Game of Thrones‘ final season in the past, stating, “How I feel about the show right now is quite defiant… Whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go f— themselves.” He went on to say, “I know how much people cared about this… I know how much pressure people put on themselves and I know how many sleepless nights working or otherwise people had on this show. Because they cared about it so much. Because they cared about the characters. Because they cared about the story. Because they cared about not letting people down.”

All eight seasons of Game of Thrones are available for streaming on HBO Max.
