Many Game of Thrones sequel series are in the works, and according to reports, Jon Snow sequel series has begun early production with Kit Harington probably reprising his role.
Game of Thrones sequel will be about Jon Snow
The network has begun early production on its first sequel to its blockbuster fantasy drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A live-action spin-off Game of Thrones sequel series centered on the fan-favorite character Jon Snow. If a series starts production, Kit Harington is expected to reprise his role. The actor was twice nominated for an Emmy for his performance as an action hero who struggles to keep his family’s high ideals in a violent world.
In the series’ eighth and final season, Jon Snow found out that his real name was Aegon Targaryen, a potential heir to the Iron Throne. He was driven out of Westeros in the series finale and went with the Wildlings to forge new beginnings beyond the Wall.
After finishing his work on Thrones for eight seasons, Harington appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and co-starred in Eternals in 2021. He is also currently starring as Henry V at the National Theater, which is playing to a live audience. In Thrones, Harington was recognized for putting up with some of the series’ most challenging filming, including the final season’s eleven weeks of winter night shoots in Northern Ireland.
HBO’s new strategy of developing stories based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world signals an intriguing new turn in the network’s approach to managing its famous fantasy universe, which is comparable to Disney+’s management of its Star Wars and Marvel brands, where the streamer has had success launching character-focused sequel series such as WandaVision (starring Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (with Ewan McGregor reprising his iconic role).
The project would also reverse events in Thrones’ final season, which will be the last word on the fates of the show’s remaining characters. The project might open the door for other Thrones characters to reappear, such as Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). This news implies that there are now seven Thrones projects in the works, in addition to the upcoming House of the Dragon prequel series, which debuts on August 21. Dragon tells the story of a civil war among House Targaryen’s members and takes place approximately 200 years before events in Thrones.
House of the Dragon’s realm will quickly be divided between “Green” and “Black” Targaryen factions, which will play an important part in the series even before the Civil War. In comparison to Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon’s conflict is primarily driven by internal squabbles within House Targaryen’s family tree that had been simmering for a long time before King Viserys’ death.
Dunk and Egg prequel is also on its way
HBO’s other live-action prequels in various stages of production are 10,000 Ships (also known as Nymeria) with showrunner Amanda Segel, 9 Voyages (also known as The Sea Snake) with executive producer Bruno Heller, and Dunk and Egg with executive producer Steve Conrad. There are three animated prequel series as well, including The Golden Empire, which is set in the China-inspired realm of Yi Ti.
