Kit Harington claims the Jon Snow ‘Game of Thrones’ sequel won’t happen.

It's official: It seems like winter isn't going anywhere. "Game of Thrones" is a smashing success on HBO, and Kit Harington has put an end to rumors of a Jon Snow sequel.  

No plans are in the works for it right now. In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, while promoting his new crime drama film "Blood for Dust," Harington said, "It's off the table for the foreseeable."  

After eight seasons, "Game of Thrones" concluded in 2019, but spinoffs were discussed. The only one that has shown so far, the HBO prequel "House of the Dragon," which takes place two centuries before "Game of Thrones," was finally available to fans three years ago.  

Reportedly in development for some years was a sequel focusing on the beloved Snow, who began "Game of Thrones" as an outcast and brother of the Night's Watch and battled his way to greater authority in Westeros and the revelation of his true lineage.  

It was more like we tossed around some ideas. "At the moment, we're going to leave it there," Harington, 37, stated, as nothing really stuck. The sequel centered around Snow isn't the first spinoff to be shelved. It was rumored in 2019 that HBO released a prequel set thousands of years in the past. It has already shot its pilot episode, which starred Naomi Watts.  

A third season of HBO's drama "Industry" will debut later this year, and Harington has just re-partnered with the network for a cameo in it. The drama is centered on the fiercely competitive financial world of London, and the actor expressed his excitement at being a part of it.  

"I simply believe it's among the most distinctive, intriguing, tonally, and excitement-inspiring works available," Harington remarks.  

June 16 will mark the release of "House of the Dragon" season two, and in the meanwhile, those who can't get enough Westeros can watch the prequel "Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight." Peter Claffey and Dexter Sol Ansell will spearhead the series, which is set a century before "Game of Thrones," according to Warner Bros.' announcement last week.
