According to Reporter, HBO is working on a Game of Thrones sequel series centred on the character Jon Snow. Kit Harrington is set to reprise the role that made him famous in the live-action series.
The series will take place after the events of Game of Thrones, making it the first of HBO’s eight Game of Thrones spin-offs currently in development. Jon Snow, a heroic outcast who found he was a potential heir to the Iron Throne, was last seen banished and resettling the free territories north of the Wall with the remaining Free Folk.
Continuing his story is a big step and a big risk. Making prequel shows that explore the established lore of Westeros comes with less baggage and more guide rails than continuing the journey of beloved characters, especially after fans’ reactions to Game of Thrones’ conclusion were, to put it mildly, divided.
Aside from House of the Dragon, which will premiere on Aug. 21, HBO is said to be working on three more live-action prequel series set in Westeros: The Sea Snake, about the great seafarer Corlys Velaryon, who appears in House of the Dragon; Ten Thousand Ships, set 1,000 years earlier and telling the story of Princess Nymeria, who founded Dorne; and a series set just 90 years before Game of Thrones, adapted from George R. R. Martin’s Tales of
According to The Hollywood Reporter, three animated prequel series are in the works, including The Golden Empire, which is set on Yi Ti’s country.
There’s no certainty that any of these projects, with the exception of House of the Dragon, will ever see the light of day. HBO went as far as filming a pilot for a prequel series starring Naomi Watts in 2019 before cancelling it.
