In the final season of Game of Thrones, John Snow discovered his name was Aegon Targaryen, and that he was possibly an heir to the Iron Throne. Yet, he was exiled from Westeros and journeyed north of the Wall with the Wildings in the finale. As the show is set after events during Game of Thrones season 8, all surviving characters could theoretically make a cameo in production. With just six episodes scheduled for production before Season 8 starts on HBO later this year, fans are eager to see what new material will be introduced into its narrative.
And while it would be difficult for any single episode or character to introduce significant changes to George R.R.
Who’s in The Casting For the “John Snow Series”?
But a recent report from Showbiz411 claims producers are casting “John Snow Series”, and they have a list of actors they’re looking at to perform the role. As filming is slated to begin in Belfast, Northern Ireland this summer, here are the six people who may be on HBO’s wishlist:
Tom Hopper, who plays Edmure Tully on Game of Thrones, is reportedly the lead in “John Snow Series.” While his participation is still unconfirmed by HBO, he has been added to the official casting call for two roles: 1. John Snow (male) [unknown if he will also play Edmure] 2. [unknown character name]
- Maisie Williams
- Gwendoline Christie
- John Bradley
- Samwell Tarley
- Emilia Clarke
What’s The Plotting Of the “John Snow Series”?
The story of the “John Snow Series” will likely center around Snow’s son and heir, Aegon Targaryen. The young man is being groomed to take on his father’s throne when he reaches his majority at twenty-five years old. It is also rumored that the series will have a British setting instead of filming in Northern Ireland and filmed in New York, as was done for the final season of Game of Thrones. According to Westeros.org, it is believed that the show will take place a few years after the events of Game of Thrones season 8, which allowed fans to speculate as to how many years had passed between Game of Thrones season 8 and the “John Snow Series.”
The series will likely have no shortage of filming locations, including London and New York, which have been confirmed as possible filming spots by HBO. Fans should expect the series to follow the events closely based on George R.R.
What’s Interesting About “John Snow Series”?
The cast of the “John Snow Series” is likely to include a few new faces, while others will return from the main series in their roles as Snow’s allies and enemies. The casting call for Game of Thrones season 8 was relatively short, and HBO was sure to use it to its full advantage by introducing key players into the show before production began. Since each episode will most likely be focused on just one or two central characters, fans can expect similar attention paid in the “John Snow Series.
What Are We Expecting From “John Snow Series”?
As production for the “John Snow Series” isn’t slated to begin until this summer, fans won’t learn much more about its content until then. But with a massive production team dedicated to bringing the show to life, fans can anticipate plenty of news and casting updates each week. It will be interesting to discover the plot of the “John Snow Series,” and fans will likely find themselves watching closely for any similarities between it and Game of Thrones season 8.
What About The Release Date Of the “John Snow Series”?
As with any HBO project, the “John Snow Series” should be released in late 2024 or early 2025. The series will most likely premiere alongside the final season of Game of Thrones, however.
HBO has tended to release successful dramas once per year, with fans eagerly awaiting the next project to come out of the network.
While it is uncertain if “John Snow Series” will have a few seasons dedicated to its own plot from now on, fans can expect it to be released during HBO’s traditional time slot each year.
