Game Of Thrones Spinoff Canceled? HBO CEO Reveals The Future

By Charlene Badasie | Published

The Game of Thrones spinoff, Snow, centered on Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow, has not received official approval from the network. According to HBO CEO and chairman Casey Bloys, none of the potential spinoffs from the series have been green-lit, but the projects are still in the works. “We always have Game of Thrones scripts in development,” he told TV Line.

Only Dunk And Egg Confirmed, Not Snow

“We green lit Dunk and Egg in the spring,” Bloys explained, referring to the series order for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight, based on George R.R. Martin’s Dunk and Egg novellas.

“I wouldn’t say there is anything else in that world that is close to a green light or anything, but we are always working on different scripts and ideas,” Bloys added about the Game of Thrones-related projects.

Kit Harrington Leading Snow

In an entry on his blog, George R.R. Martin revealed that Kit Harington had taken the lead in developing the Snow series.

“Yes, it was Kit Harrington who brought the idea to us. I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners since that has not been cleared for release yet, but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific,” Martin wrote.

The Game of Thrones author added that Kit’s team visited him in Santa Fe and worked with him other talented writers and consultants to refine the show’s concept.

In May, Francesca Orsi, the head of drama at HBO, discussed the impact of the writers’ strike on Snow, which was in the process of potentially being approved for production. She describes the series as being “in the early stages.”

Jon Snow And Game Of Thrones

Kit Harrington

Jon Snow is a popular character in the Game of Thrones series, which is based on George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Snow is introduced as the illegitimate son of Eddard “Ned” Stark, the lord of Winterfell.

He is raised at Winterfell alongside Ned’s legitimate children but faces the social stigma of being a “bastard.”

To find his place in the world, Jon chooses to join the Night’s Watch, a sworn brotherhood tasked with defending the Wall, a massive ice structure that separates the Seven Kingdoms from the dangerous wilderness beyond it.

He does this to escape his status and to seek honor and purpose. Throughout Game of Thrones, Jon proves himself as a capable leader, rising through the ranks of the Night’s Watch.

A Central Figure In The Series

Jon becomes a central figure in the fight against the White Walkers, a supernatural threat that endangers all of humanity. His efforts to unite different factions to combat this existential threat are a significant part of his character arc in Game of Thrones. Jon’s romantic involvement with Ygritte, his friendship with Samwell Tarly, and Sam’s relationship with Daenerys Targaryen add depth to the story.

Snow Is After Game Of Thrones

The Snow series will focus on what happened to Jon after the events of Game of Thrones season eight. In the finale, Snow discovered his name was Aegon Targaryen and that he was possibly an heir to the Iron Throne.

However, he was exiled from Westeros and journeyed north of the Wall with the Wildlings, a fiercely independent group who shun the hierarchical structure of the Seven Kingdoms.

Project Details Unclear

While Kit Harington is confirmed to reprise his role as the titular character, other members of the original Game of Thrones cast have expressed interest in joining the series.

However, it is unclear who will be involved once the project is approved. Due to the ongoing actors’ strike, no official announcements about casting and production dates can be made at this time.
