Jon Snow started Game of Thrones as the best and most perfect written hero in literature and TV. However, his journey changed and little by little he became just stubborn, remiss, and in the end, a traitor. Unconditional fans of his, like me, we’re never satisfied with the change. Jon represented all the painful ideals of an idealistic and good person, he didn’t deserve the ending he received in the series.
But, following the example of Marvel and Star Wars, with a rich and parallel universe of characters, HBO, which is weeks away from releasing a prequel to the franchise, with House of the Dragon, is already working on a sequel, precisely with fan-favorite character Jon Snow, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The best of the news? Kit Harington would be willing to reprise the role that made him a star if a series goes ahead. He was nominated twice for an Emmy for Best Actor for the role.
For many, it is the best opportunity to “correct” the “mistakes” of the final part of the series, especially in the eighth season, when Jon Snow discovered that his real name was Aegon Targaryen and he was the true heir to the Iron Throne. However, torn between his love for Daenerys Targaryen and her family, House Stark. In making the choice for the greater good, he lost his throne, killed his lover, and was exiled from Westeros. The last time we saw him, he was heading north of the Wall with the Wildlings, leaving his old life behind.
Another celebration is that, with the series, other popular characters like Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) can reappear. It seems difficult to me, unfortunately, for Peter Dinklage to return as Tyrion Lannister, but it would be amazing.
In addition to Jon Snow, there are also projects for 10,000 ships (or Nymeria), the series about a character we will come to know, The Sea Snake (or 9 Voyages), and Dunk and Egg. To see how the project will be developed!
Of course, we’ll follow along.
