O War of Thrones sequel starring Kit Harington will be called Snow, and it was all instigated by the actor, says author George RR Martin.
“Yes, there is a Jon Snow show in the works,” Martin wrote Thursday on his personal blog. “Our working title for the show is SNOW.”
In his blog entry, the author on whose books the award-winning HBO blockbuster was based revealed a few more details about the potential series, which appears to be far more advanced than previously thought.
On the one hand, reiterating what He picked up Star Emilia Clarke told the BBC on Wednesday, Martin says it was Harington himself who came up with the idea for the new show. The scribe once called the “American Tolkien” for Time magazine also revealed that Snow it is partially full.
“Yes, it was Kit Harrington (sic) who brought the idea to us,” the self-described “very busy,” Martin wrote. “I can’t name the writers/showrunners as this hasn’t been released for release yet…but Kit brought them too, his own team, and they’re great.”
“SNOW has been in development for almost as long as the other three, but for some reason it was never announced and never leaked… until now,” noted Martin.
The trio of previously announced He picked up spinoffs in progress is the film directed by Amanda Segal 10,000 ships; 9 trips also known as Water snake by Bruno Heller; and the prequel series to Dunk & Egg, written by Steve Conrad, titled The Hedge Knight or Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.
The first prequel series, dragon housestarring Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans and is scheduled to premiere August 21 on HBO Max.
Harington news He picked up spinoff was first broken by THR Last week. At the time, sources said the project was in the early stages of development.
Today, Martin has offered a much more evolved impression of where Snow I was:
Various rumors are circulating about my involvement, or lack thereof. I’m involved, as I am with THE HEDGE KNIGHT and THE SEA SNAKE and TEN THOUSAND SHIPS, and all the animated shows. 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.
All four of these successor shows are still in the script stage. Sketches and treatments were written and approved, scripts were written, notes were given, second and third drafts were written. So far, that’s all. That’s how television works. Please note: nothing has been lit yet, and there is no guarantee when or if it will be… at any of these shows. The likelihood that all four series will air…well, I’d love to, but that’s not usually how it works.
There are all sorts of reasons why pilots are never chosen for the series, all sorts of reasons why scripts were never filmed as pilots, all sorts of reasons why great treatments are never sent to the script. That’s how the business works. I learned this a long time ago, during my first round of television. BLACK SET. STARPORT THE SURVIVORS. DOORS TO VANISH. Those were just a few of my stillborn children from those years. I regret them still. This is a new day though, so… here’s hoping one or two or three or all four GOT spin-offs hit the air.
That’s all I can say about SNOW right now. If HBO says I can tell more, I will…
HBO had no response today to Martin’s blog post.
if Snow make it to the series, of course it wouldn’t be the first time that Harington’s character has returned to the Seven Kingdoms. Jon Snow was reportedly killed off in the season 5 finale of the hit series. To the surprise of few, the character was resurrected at the beginning of Season 6.
Martin today may be answering in part to Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen in all eight seasons of He picked up, talking to Beeb earlier this week. “It was created by Kit, as far as I can understand, so he’s been in it from the start,” Clarke said in the article scheduled for its June 29 UK stage debut at Chekhov’s. the seagull. “So what you’re going to watch, hopefully, if it does, will be certified by Kit Harington.”
Unlike Martin, Clarke has had and anticipates having nothing to do with Snow or any War of Thrones derivatives. “No, I think I’m done,” she told the BBC this week.
