Game of Thrones Creators Spill Secrets on Jon Snow Sequel and Returning To Westeros

Game of Thrones Creators Spill Secrets on Jon Snow Sequel

Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff recently addressed persistent rumors surrounding a potential Jon Snow sequel series. They discussed the likelihood of returning to the rich world of Westeros for more spinoffs.

Currently engrossed in their latest series, 3 Body Problem, the duo shared their thoughts on the possibility of delving back into the Game of Thrones universe.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Weiss expressed enthusiasm, stating, “Nothing would make us happier than to work with our people from that show.” However, he also hinted at exploring alternative and innovative approaches to continue the story, keeping the experience “fresh and exciting for everyone involved.”

“But there are a lot of other ways to make that happen that are fresh and exciting for everyone involved.”

Addressing concerns about Kit Harington reprising his role as Jon Snow, Weiss humorously noted, “Unless [Kit Harington] has been doing a lot of working out, that’s a really heavy cloak for a guy in his 40s to carry around — it’s like 60 pounds.” This playful comment adds a touch of humor to discussions about the physical demands of revisiting iconic characters.

Game of Thrones, derived from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, evolved into a cultural phenomenon. The initial seasons, spanning 1-5, closely adhered to Martin’s literary works, while the later seasons embraced a more liberal approach to adaptation. Despite the immense success, the showrunners faced criticism for the ending of Season 8.

Reflecting on the reception, David Benioff acknowledged the diversity of opinions, stating, “You always hope everyone’s going to love anything you do, but it would’ve been great if 100 percent of people loved it, but they didn’t.” He also admitted to missing the series, saying, “Oh yeah. All the time.”

While navigating the development of 3 Body Problem, a sci-fi drama in collaboration with Netflix, the duo, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, express openness to potential future Game of Thrones projects.
