While the 1st episode of the series House of Dragons will be released on August 22 on the platform HBO Max dedicated to subscribers HBOthe spin-off about Jon Snow is talking about him today, since his title has already been found.
HBO looks north
A week ago : spectacular turn of events. We learned thata series centered on the character of Jon Snow was beginning its developmentafter House of Dragons, which will focus on the power struggles around House Targaryen, 200 years before Game Of Thrones.
We understood it, HBO seems to want to create its own universeits myriad of series connected to each other, as Disney does for Star Wars. Indeed, HBO had announced work on several spin-offs around the universe created by George RR Martin: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms adapting the Chronicles of the Errant Knight, whose action takes place 90 years before Game Of Thrones, The Sea Snakeon the adventures of Corlys Velaryon, or even Ten Thousand Shipson Nymeria Sand, the Warrior of Dorne.
A mist-tinged north
What do we currently know about the Jon Snow project? Not much, except that Kit Harrington is expected to return the suit of the now leader of the wildlings. The information is therefore very scant.
But a new treat is given to us today. The series would already have a name. On George RR Martin’s blog, he announced that the series should be simply titled “Snow“, before adding: “Yes, it was Kit Harrington who brought us the idea. I can’t tell you the names of the writers/showrunners, since it hasn’t been cleared to me yet, but Kit has also brought her own team, and they’re great.”
Here is reassuring news, since it comes from Martin himself. However, there is no indication that the series will see the light of day anytime soon. On the blog, still, we can read that “SNOW has been in development for almost as long as the other three, but for some reason it has never been announced and there has never been a leak… Until now“. When we know that the series mentioned above are still in their infancy, it is therefore a question of taking tweezers. So let’s wait for new, more concrete information. Filming photos? Casting? Confirmation that the project is underway with a showrunner in the controllers would be a good start.
