Kit Harington announced on Tuesday that HBO’s Jon Snow-focused Game of Thrones follow-up has been canceled.

“At this time, there are no plans for it. For the time being, it’s off the table,” Harington informed the Associated Press.

Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy books. The eighth and last season of Martin concluded in 2019. House of the Dragon, the prequel series on HBO, debuted in 2022 and will return for a second season in June of this year.

Plans to premiere a Jon Snow-focused Game of Thrones sequel series in 2022 also surfaced, with Harington confirmed to play the title character.

Since then, there have been few updates on the prospective project’s status; however, in January, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss told The Hollywood Reporter that they hadn’t completely written off the sequel.

“Weiss expressed that working with our colleagues from that show would be extremely fulfilling and amazing.”. However, there are numerous alternative approaches that are novel and thrilling for all parties concerned. Also, unless [Kit Harington] has been doing a lot of working out, that’s a really heavy cloak for a guy in his 40s to carry around — it’s like 60 pounds. “.

The two concluded that, given the passage of time since the original show’s finale, this might be a better idea. Weiss joked, “Maybe when we’re 80 and Kit’s getting close to retirement, he can put that cloak on again with real gray in his beard.”. “.
