Game of Thrones fans have been left overjoyed after news broke that Jon Snow could return for his own spin-off series.
With the first of the franchise’s spin-offs – the prequel, House of the Dragon – due for release by HBO in August, the network is allegedly already in the “early development” stages of a spin-off following Snow, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Actor Kit Harington is expected to reprise his role as the fan favourite character, also known as Aegon Targaryen.
The show is believed to explore Snow’s story after leaving Westeros, as his character was one of a few who survived until the end of the Game of Thrones series.
Snow’s final scene in the show saw him walking through Castle Black and leading the Wildlings back to their true home North of the Wall.
It’s fair to say the news of a potential sequel featuring Harrington has delighted the show’s die hard fans.
