Following the divisive final season of the original series, it looks as if Harington and HBO are ready to return to Westeros and continue Jon’s epic story where it left off.
The last time we saw Jon, he was traveling beyond the Wall after being forced to rejoin the Night’s Watch for murdering Daenerys Targaryen.
It seemed that Jon was destined to rule the Seven Kingdoms, given his true identity as Aegon Targaryen, so audiences were understandably disappointed by his fate at the end of the series. However, a sequel could finally give this character the ending he deserves.
With multiple other spinoffs in the works and a prequel series coming out in August, it looks as if HBO is planning to create an expanded universe for Game of Thrones similar to what Disney+ is doing with Star Wars.
Though it’s been about three years since Game of Thrones ended, Harington has continued to play prominent roles, including as Dane Whitman/Black Knight in Marvel Studios’ Eternals and the titular role in the National Theatre’s production of Henry V.
This is the baddest guy around town. Hook me up so that we can share some routine infor in the area.
