Jon Snow sequel series isn’t “close to a green light” at HBO

Game of Thrones wrapped up with its eighth and final season in 2019, but HBO has since expanded the franchise with multiple spinoffs. Of course, we already have House of the Dragon, which was an instant success. HBO has also ordered a show based on George R.R. Martin’s A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms novellas. As for further offshoots, HBO has yet to officially announce anything.

So far, HBO is taking the slow and steady approach to Game of Thrones spinoffs. That’s in contrast to networks like AMC, which aired two Walking Dead spinoffs in the year following the main show’s conclusion; or Marvel Studios, which has multiple new TV shows and movies run each year. Still, don’t mistake HBO’s restraint for disinterest. “We always have Game of Thrones scripts in development. We greenlit Dunk and Egg in the spring,” HBO CEO Casey Bloys told TV Line.

No, the Jon Snow series does not have a series order… yet

Looking into the future, there are numerous rumors on the grapevine about Game of Thrones spinoff shows in the works. Perhaps the most exciting is a sequel series that will follow Jon Snow (Kit Harington) after the events of Game of Thrones. The spinoff was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter in 2022, but updates have been few and far between since then.

“I wouldn’t say there is anything else in that world that is close to a green light or anything,” Bloys said, confirming that the Jon Snow show has not been handed a series order yet. “But we are always working on different scripts and ideas.”

Needless to say, this is a disappointing update for Thrones fans. HBO will not rush into anything, favoring quality over quantity. Even so, with House of the Dragon season 2 coming next summer and Dunk and Egg on the way, we can’t really complain!
