The success of Game of Thrones tempted the execs at HBO to venture forth into the mystical realm of George R. R. Martin’s novels, as a result, we have House of The Dragon, the first prequel, to be released very soon. HBO has also been playing around with several ideas that are set in the world of Westeros, and the most recent one will possibly make Jon Snow fans very happy.

A Game of Thrones spinoff circling on the life of Jon Snow after the events of the show is currently being worked on at HBO, proposed by none other than King beyond The Wall himself, Kit Harington. George R. R. Martin himself came forward with more information, right after Emilia Clarke broke the news.

Martin wrote on his blog Not A Blog:

“Yes, there is a Jon Snow show in development. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER story was largely correct. 

Our working title for the show is SNOW.

There are four live-action successor shows in development at HBO. Word got out about three of them some time ago. TEN THOUSAND SHIPS, the Nymeria show, helmed by Amanda Segel. SEA SNAKE, aka NINE VOYAGES, with Bruno Heller. And the Dunk & Egg show, THE HEDGE KNIGHT or KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS, with Steve Conrad writing. I think some of these were officially announced; in other cases, news leaked out. (These things always seem to leak. There are so many people involved, writers, producers, agents, and everyone has assistants, and there is always the guy who runs the xerox machine, and reporters have sources, and people gossip, so… ) SNOW has been in development almost as long as the other three, but for whatever reason, it was never announced and it never leaked… until now.

But, yes, it is true. This was not an official announcement from HBO, so it seems there was another leak. There’s not much more I can tell you, not until HBO gives me a green light.

It seems as though Emilia Clarke has already mentioned that SNOW was Kit’s idea in a recent interview. So that part is out. 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.

Various rumors are floating around about my involvement, or lack of same. I am involved, just as I am with THE HEDGE KNIGHT and THE SEA SNAKE and TEN THOUSAND SHIPS, and all the animated shows. Kit’s team have visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant, talented writer/ consultants to hammer out the show.”
