Entertainment News | Emilia Clarke and George RR Martin Confirm Jon Snow Sequel to ‘GoT’


Los Angeles, June 24 (PTI) Actress Emilia Clarke and author George RR Martin have confirmed that a “Game of Thrones” spin-off series based on Kit Harington’s Jon Snow is in development at HBO.

It was reported last week that HBO had started work on the spin-off show that would take place after the events of “Game of Thrones” with Harington reprising his role.

Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the original show’s eighth series from 2011 to 2019, told the BBC in an interview that Harington told her about the new series.

“He told me about it. And I know it exists. It’s happening. It was created by Kit as far as I know, so he’s been in it from the start. So what you’ll be watching hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington,” Clarke said.

However, the actor ruled out the possibility of her returning as Daenerys Targaryen in the spin-off.

Martin, whose ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ book series is the source of ‘Game of Thrones’, revealed that the project’s working title is ‘Snow’ and also said that it was Harrington ‘who brought up the idea”.

“I can’t tell you the names of the writers/showrunners as it hasn’t been cleared for release yet…but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they’re great,” wrote the author on his blog.

Martin added that he was “involved” in the series, as well as other spin-off shows like “The Hedge Knight”, “The Sea Snake” and “Ten Thousand Ships”.

“Kit’s team visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant and talented writers/consultants to craft the show,” Martin wrote.

The four spin-off shows are still in “script stage” and have yet to be officially greenlit by HBO, he added.

“Nothing has been greenlit yet, and there’s no guarantee when or if it will be…on any of these shows. The likelihood of all four series airing…well, I’d love that, but this isn’t the way it usually works… ‘Snow’ has been in development for almost as long as the other three, but for some reason it was never announced and it never leaked… until ‘see you now,’ he said.

HBO will soon release its first ‘Game of Thrones’ spin-off, titled ‘House of the Dragon’, which is slated to premiere on August 21.
