Emilia Clarke has confirmed that her Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington will reprise his role as Jon Snow in a new spin-off series.
In addition to the House of the Dragon prequel slated to premiere in August, Clarke has confirmed reports Harington is also behind a second series tying into the original franchise.
Asked about the BBC News reports, she said: “He told me about it. And I know it exists. It happens.
But appearing to backtrack slightly, she added: “He was created by Kit as far as I know, so he’s been in it from the start.
“So what you’re going to watch hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”
She also said she would not show up. “No, I think I’m done,” she replied.
Neither Game of Thrones nor Kit Harington has commented on reports on the series, but The Hollywood Reporter claimed it would center on the character of Snow.
The HBO original series finale saw him discover his real name, be exiled from the realm of Westeros, and travel north of the wall to find a new life.
He also lost his lover Ygritte (played by Rose Leslie, whom he married in 2018) and discovered he was descended from Clarke’s character’s family – the Targaryens.
House of the Dragon prequel and stage show in development
The House of the Dragon series is based on the 2018 novel Fire & Blood by Game of Thrones author George RR Martin and tells the story of a civil war within House Targaryen.
It takes place around 200 years before Game of Thrones began and stars Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon.
A Game of Thrones play is also in development, according to reports.

She appeared on stage once before in Breakfast At Tiffany’s on Broadway in 2013 – but to lackluster reviews.
