Kit Harington Shares Disappointing Update on 'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off About Jon Snow

'A Song of Ice and Fire' creator George R.R. Martin previously confirmed that a series centering on Kit's character on the hit HBO series was in the works.

AceShowbiz - Kit Harington has shared an update on a planned spin-off sequel about his "Game of Thrones" character Jon Snow. The 37-year-old claimed in a new interview that the project didn't go through, much to fans' dismay.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Kit was asked about the update on "the big" project. "It'd only be fair to share this with you if you're alluding to Jon Snow at all, it's not happening," the actor said, "and not happening anytime soon anyway."

The British star went on to share that they struggled to find the right story to bring for the character. "We bounced some ideas around and nothing really lit us up. It just didn't. I think we don't want to do something that's not worth it," the "Blood for Dust" star added, "So for the time being, we're just shelving it."

Kit continued, "I would never have said yes to the idea of developing something with Jon Snow if I didn't think there was something interesting there, and there could have been."

"But HBO cares about the character a lot and I care about the character a lot, and we don't want to put out something that is going to sully the character," he went on saying. "That's the worst thing that we could possibly do."

He noted, "So unless we find something in the future that really lands, there's no point in rushing it. There's no point in keeping developing for development's sake and doing something that I don't want to do."

Prior to this, "A Song of Ice and Fire" creator George R.R. Martin confirmed that a Jon Snow series was in the works. "It was Kit Harrington who brought the idea to us," the author wrote in a blog entry at the time.

After "Game of Thrones" ended, HBO is reportedly working on several spin-offs. While "House of the Dragon" is the only spin-off that made it to the small screen, the network recently cast Peter Claffey as the knight "Dunk" (Ser Duncan the Tall) and Dexter Sol Ansell as Dunk's diminutive squire "Egg" for "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight", another TV project from "Game of Thrones" universe.
