George RR Martin Reveals Jon Snow Sequel’s “Working Title”, Has Staff – Deadline

The Game of Thrones sequel starring Kit Harington will be called Snow, and it’s all on the actor’s initiative, says author George RR Martin.

“Yes, there is a Jon Snow show in development,” Martin wrote on his personal blog on Thursday. “Our working title for the show is SNOW

In the post on his blog, the author whose books the award-winning HBO blockbuster was based teased a few more details about the potential series, which appears to be much further along than previously believed.

To start repeating what? Got star Emilia Clarke told the BBC on Wednesday, Martin says it was Harington herself who initiated the idea for the new show. The writer once called the “American Tolkien” by Time magazine also revealed that Snow is partially staffed.

“Yeah, it was Kit Harrington (sic) who brought the idea to us,” wrote the self-described “way too busy,” Martin wrote. “I can’t tell you the names of the writers/showrunners as that hasn’t been approved for release yet…but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they’re amazing.”

“SNOW has been in development for almost as long as the other three, but for whatever reason it was never announced and never leaked… until now,” Martin noted.

The trio of previously announced Got spin-offs in the works are the Amanda Segal-directed 10,000 ships9 trips in other words sea ​​serpent by Bruno Heller; and the Steve Conrad-written Dunk & Egg prequel series titled either The Hague Knight or Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

The first prequel series, House of the Dragonstarring Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans and premieres August 21 on HBO Max.

News from the Harington Got spin-off was first broken by THR last week. At the time, sources said the project was in the very early stages of development.

Today Martin offered a much more evolved impression of where Snow was at:

There are several rumors circulating about my involvement, or lack thereof. I’m involved, just like I am with THE HEDGE KNIGHT and THE SEA SNAKE and TEN THOUSAND SHIPS, and all the animated shows. Kit’s team visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant, talented writers/advisors to bring the show to a close.

All four of these successor shows are still in the script phase. Outlines and treatments are written and approved, scripts are written, notes are made, second and third drafts are written. So far that’s all. This is how television works. Note: nothing has been green-lit yet and there is no guarantee when or if it will be… at one of these shows. Chances of all four series airing… well, I’d love to, but it usually doesn’t work that way.

There are all kinds of reasons why pilots are never picked up for series, all kinds of reasons why scripts are never included as pilots, all kinds of reasons great treatments are never sent to the script. That’s how the company works. I learned that a long time ago, during my first round of television. BLACK CLUSTER. START GATE. THE SURVIVORS. DOOR OPENINGS. FADE OUT. Those were just a few of my stillborn children from those years. I still grieve for them. This is another day though, so… here’s hoping one or two or three or all four of the GOT spin-offs air.

That’s all I can just tell you about SNOW. If HBO says I can tell you more, I’ll…

HBO had no response to Martin’s blog post today.

if Snow makes it to the series, it wouldn’t be the first time Harington’s character returns to the Seven Kingdoms, of course. Jon Snow is said to have been murdered at the end of season 5 of the blockbuster series. In a surprise to few, the character was resurrected at the start of Season 6.

Martin may have reacted in part today to Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen in all eight seasons of Got, in conversation with the Beeb earlier this week. “As far as I can understand, it was made by Kit, so he’s in it from the ground up,” Clarke said in the article timed on her June 29 British stage debut at Chekhov’s The Seagull† “So what you’re going to watch, hopefully, when it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”

Unlike Martin, Clarke has had nothing to do with and expects nothing to do with it Snow or whatever Game of Thrones spin-offs. “No, I think I’m done,” she told the BBC this week.
