“Yes, it was Kit Harrington who brought the idea to us. I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners, since that has not been cleared for release yet but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific,” Martin wrote.
On the other hand, Clarke opened up about the project while speaking to BBC.
“He has told me about it. And I know it exists. It’s happening. 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,” Clarke said.
In ‘Game of Thrones’ eighth-and-final season, Jon Snow discovered his true name was Aegon Targaryen, a potential heir to the Iron Throne. In the series finale, he was exiled from Westeros and journeyed North of the Wall with the Wildlings to leave his old life behind.
Created by David Benioff and DB Weiss, the fantasy drama television series finished after its eighth and final season. It premiered on 14 April, 2019, and concluded on 19 May, 2019.
