Kit Harington back as Jon Snow for Game of Thrones sequel series

June 17th, 2022 by Marc Comments

It looks like we’re heading back to Westeros not long after we left it last time… with a very familiar face.

Yes, he may know nothing, but Jon Snow is returning for more of the Game of Thrones.

Kit Harington is reportedly signed on for a live-action sequel to the hit fantasy series which, while nothing is really known about it at the moment, will likely focus on the fact that late in the series Snow learned his real name was Aegon Targaryen and he was an heir to the Iron Throne.

Harington played Jon Snow for eight seasons on Game of Thrones and became one of the fan favorites of the series, and while his return will likely be a welcome one among fans, I’m not sure what he has left to do in the story.

New Game of Thrones series gets first trailer

With this, the prequel series, House of the Dragon, hitting in August and numerous live-action and animated series and spin-offs happening, it’s clear that HBO are looking to make this their MCU or Star Wars… if we don’t get Peter Dinklage back as Tyrion Lannister, we’re likely to riot. Or, well, bitch about it online a bit and get into debates on Twitter that we wish we were never stupid enough to reply to… the usual.

With several over live-action and animated series in the works (details here), it seems we have much still to learn… much like Jon Snow himself.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
