Reports have been circulating that Kit Harington is set to return as Jon Snow for a Game of Thrones sequel series, and while there hasn’t been any official confirmation, GoT star Emilia Clarke has seemingly confirmed that it is indeed real.

Last week, The Hollywood Reporter first shared the news of plans for an as-yet unnamed live-action series, which will takes place after the events in Game of Thrones, and now Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen, has spoken about it. 

During an interview with the BBC, she said: “He [Kit Harington] has told me about it. And I know it exists. It's happening.”

She added: “It's been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he's in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”

Because the series would be set after events in Game of Thrones, there is of course the possibility that other characters from the original series might turn up. However, if you’ve seen the final season of GoT, (spoiler alert) you shouldn't be expecting the Queen of Dragons to turn up. 

And Emilia has told the BBC that she probably won’t be heading back to the world of Game of Thrones anytime soon. In the interview, in which she was promoting her UK stage debut in Chekhov's The Seagull, she responded to the question of whether she’d consider appearing in a GoT spin-off, by saying: “No, I think I'm done.”

The Jamie Lloyd Company’s Covid-delayed production of The Seagull at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London will see her star alongside Sherwood’s Robert Glenister.

Meanwhile, as we wait for more news about the potential Jon Snow Game of Thrones sequel, we can step back into George RR Martin’s world soon with House of the Dragon. 

The new series will tell the story of the Targaryen civil war that took place about 300 years before events portrayed in GoT, and is set to land in August.
