HBO Max quotes Ygritte in its hilarious response to recent reports that HBO has a Game of Thrones sequel focused on Jon Snow in development.
HBO Max has shared the perfect response to all those reports about a game of Thrones sequel series following Kit Harrington’s Jon Snow. Based on George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, game of Thrones aired on HBO from 2011 to 2019. Throughout the game-changing series’ eight seasons, Harrington played Ned Stark’s (supposed) bastard son Jon Snow, who went on to become Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and King of the North. After an abandoned prophecy and the revelation that Jon’s real name was Aegon Targaryen, Jon was banished from Westeros for killing Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones’ finale. The series’ final shot saw Jon and Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) riding north beyond the Wall with the Wildings.
Following Game of Thrones’ incredibly divisive final season, several prequels have been announced and are in development at HBO. These shows include the working-titled Tales of Dunk and Egg, 9 Voyages, Flea Bottom, 10,000 shipsand, of course, this year’s House of the Dragon—most of which are loosely based on work already written by Martin. Recently, news broke that HBO was developing its first potential game of Thrones sequel series about Jon Snow, with Harrington attached to reprise his role. Now, HBO Max has responded in kind.
The official Twitter account for HBO Max recently shared a picture of Harrington’s character for season 1. The post was accompanied by a reference to the iconic line frequently uttered by Rose Leslie’s Ygritte (before and after Olly put an arrow through her), “You Know Nothing Jon Snow.” Naturally, HBO is here to say, “I know nothing.“Check it out below:
Given the challenges attached to an essential continuation of Game of Thrones’ main story, most likely found the news of a sequel hard to believe. On top of that, Harrington signaled himself done with Westeros in the past. Since they didn’t outright deny it, the above tweet seems to confirm a Jon Snow sequel is part of the discussion at HBO. While an excessive number of spinoffs can result in diminishing returns —which has arguably been the case with a galaxy far, far away—a sequel to this particular flagship series could not only do wonders for the taste it left in (almost) everyone’s mouth but give the Prince that was promised a proper throne.
No members of the game of Thrones sequel’s creative team has been announced. However, Martin himself is very involved with every other spinoff that’s in the works at HBO. His involvement with a sequel would lend credence to its existence (if he ever finishes The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring) as it further connects itself to the source material. A show focused on Harrington would also allow for the return of everyone else who survived the Mad Queen, including Sophie Turner’s Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams’ Arya Stark, Gwendoline Christie’s Brienne of Tarth, John Bradley’s Samwell Tarly, and Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister. The latter of which did say “a few years as Hand of the King would want to make anyone p-ss off the edge of the world.”
