Will There Be a Jon Snow ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoff?

Kit Harington has been one of the actors of Game of Thrones who’s been pretty quiet about rumors of there being a spin-off for his character, Jon Snow. During an episode on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Fallon asked the 36-year-old actor about the rumors that are surrounding an upcoming spin-off series about Snow. Laughing and smiling, the actor kept his response pretty simple telling Fallon, “ I don’t know. Do you want to have it?”

Back in June 2020, The Hollywood Reporter had revealed that there was a sequel series about Harrington’s character, and it was an early development. Although the actor remained pretty secretive about a role reprisal, he went on to tell Fallon, “I can’t say anything.” The actor did note that there is one reason why he would do a spin-off,  this in order to get more attention from the public.

“I don’t know, man … I walk down the street and I get recognized a little less nowadays, and it kind of hurts my ego, you know?” he joked. “I’m pretty close to putting on some furs.”

“I got a tally in my head of how few photos I get asked for in a day,” Harington went on. “And when it gets below a certain number, I think I’ll do a spin-off.”

Fallon then went on to make a joke, telling his fans not to ask him for a photo. “If you do it for the next two days, by Monday we could have an answer, and we could see a Game of Thrones spin-off right now with Jon Snow,” Fallon stated. “We’ll do this together.”

The talk of the spin-off began when the late-night host had asked about him attending the official Game of Thrones convention in Los Angeles back in December. At the event, the actor had opened up about how he felt his character was doing after the show’s shocking ending in 2019.

“It was a bit like going back in time,” Harington said of attending the event. “I know it’s only been four years or something, but it feels longer. And I went to it, and it’s nice seeing the fans. It’s kind of amazing that that show’s still got such a fanbase and it’s continuing on in its own way.”

He also revealed that Snow wasn’t okay when fans saw him last, saying that after the series finale his character “would have felt that he got off lightly.”  The fact he goes to the Wall is the greatest gift and also the greatest curse,” he noted. 

“He’s gotta go back up to the place with all this history and live out his life thinking about how he killed Dany, and live out his life thinking about Ygritte [played by his wife Rose Leslie] dying in his arms, and live out his life thinking about how he hung Olly [Brenock O’Connor], and live out his life thinking about all of this trauma, and that … that’s interesting,” Harington continued.

“So I think when we leave him at the end of the show, there’s always this feeling of like … I think we wanted some kind of little smile so that things are okay. He’s not okay,” Harington added.
