HBO has begun production on a Game of Thrones prequel series starring Kit Harington, who will reprise his role as Jon Snow!
“You know nothing about HBO’s post-Game of Thrones plans,” says James Hibberd, a longtime Game of Thrones correspondent, before revealing a Westerosi surprise.
I’d be skeptical of the next words if they came from anyone else.
However, with this source, you may be sure that the incredible story you’re about to read is accurate.
HBO has begun pre-production on its first Game of Thrones sequel series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
If HBO decides to press forward with this potential spinoff, it will be a live-action series based on Jon Snow, with Kit Harington set to reprise his renowned Game of Thrones role.
Jon Snow had gone into exile with the Night’s Watch after the terrible expedition south in which he sadly killed Daenerys Targaryen, and was last seen riding with wildings north When we last saw him, he was on the other side of the Wall.
He was a Night’s Watch thug, a commander, a monarch, and a warrior who brought disparate peoples together to combat the army of the dead over the course of the series.
His journey was one of the most amazing in all of the Game of Thrones… But, after he crossed the Wall, what happened to him?
Did he become a member of the wildlings in order to live in peace? Was he only taking them north before heading back to Castle Black?
Or will he return as Aegon Targaryen, the last of his bloodline, to Westeros?

Sansa is Queen of the North; would she ever require her brother’s diplomatic assistance in dealing with wildlings? There’s so much that HBO could do with the show.
It’s no secret that HBO has a slew of Game of Thrones projects in the works, which makes the fact that this series wasn’t even reported until now all the more astounding.
House of the Dragon, the first Game of Thrones spinoff, is set to premiere in August.
It’s a prequel that takes place 200 years before Game of Thrones and chronicles the deadly Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.
There’s also a Dunk and Egg series, which would adapt George R.R. Martin’s beloved novellas about Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg, and 10,000 Ships, a series about the warrior queen Nymeria; 9 Voyages (or Sea Snake), a series about the famed mariner Coryls Velaryon’s early adventures; and a Dunk and Egg series, which would adapt George R.R.

HBO is also said to be working on three animated programs, one of which is named The Golden Empire and is about Yi Ti.
But a Jon Snow prequel? That’s one we didn’t see coming, and by the old and new gods, is it thrilling!
HBO has shown a willingness to go beyond the story established in Game of Thrones by announcing this Jon Snow sequel series.
Who knows where it will lead if it is truly built and successful. These are undiscovered territories as wild as the tundra beyond the Wall.
For the time being, all we know is that Kit Harington may reprise his role as Jon Snow, and HBO is gearing up to produce the first sequel to one of the most beloved fantasy television series of all time. Our timepiece resets.
