Speculation about Kit Harington's return as Jon Snow in a rumored Game of Thrones sequel has been fueled by HBO Max recently. HBO is reportedly working on a spin-off series based on Kit Harington's character Jon Snow, which made headlines just a few days ago. HBO Max's official Twitter account has responded with a hilarious joke about the new service.

The trolling used Yigritte's famous quote from the series, saying that they "know nothing" of such reports. "You know nothing, Jon Snow," Rose Leslie's character Yigritte would say to Jon Snow on the show.

George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels are currently being developed into several spin-offs by HBO, according to ScreenRant. First and foremost, HBO Max will air House of the Dragons in August. A companion novel, Fire and Blood, is the basis for this film. Aside from that, the studio is reportedly working on other adaptations, such as an animated series, set in the Game of Thrones universe centuries before the events depicted in the popular television series. Nine voyages and 10,000 ships are included in this collection.

Despite the fact that HBO did not explicitly deny the reports of a Jon Snow spin-off in a recent tweet, this tweet suggests that HBO isn't actively denying them. This would be the first continuation of the Game of Thrones story, surpassing George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire's original plans. Previously, after Season 5, Game of Thrones shifted to a new plot line, with Martin's input influencing the final narrative.

For the studio, it will be difficult to create a show of this caliber, particularly when the magnitude is as large as GoT. Fans will be thrilled if Kit Harington's return and the conclusion of Jon Snow's story arc are confirmed.

Do You Think Jon Snow Will Get What He Deserves?

The focus of the Jon Snow spin-off could be on Jon getting his due as the King of Westeros. It was revealed in Game of Thrones that Jon was actually Ned Stark's nephew, and that he was the trueborn son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and that his real name is Aegon. In this way, he became the legitimate heir apparent to the throne. However, his assassination of Daenerys brought the Unsullied and the North into direct conflict. As a last resort, Jon Snow was sent back to the Wall, where he joined the Free Folk on their journey northward. Brandon Stark was renamed King Bran the Broken in his place.

Many fans were devastated by the show's demise, which resulted in the final season receiving the lowest ratings of the show's run. The show's creative team hasn't been revealed, but it's likely that Martin will be involved as well. The Winds of Winter, Martin's newest novel, will be the longest in the series. All eyes are on this spin-off, as it could be the only chance for Jon Snow to fulfill his destiny as king of Westeros and fulfill his destiny as Prince Who Was Promised.
