In an interview with the BBC, the former Mother of Dragons confirmed that Kit Harington will reprise his role as Jon Snow in a spin-off centered around the fan-favorite fantasy hero, as the Hollywood Reporter previously reported. “He has told me about it.

House of the Dragon is on its way to HBO later this year and the Game of Thrones spinoff has some fans anxious.

George R. R. Martin Debunks Major Elden Ring Fan Theory

George R.R. Martin is considered one of the most influential fantasy authors in recent years, penning the series that led to "Game of Thrones" and planning to continue work on spinoff television series for the next several years. He even sat down to work with FromSoftware visionary Hidetaka Miyazaki to help develop the lore of "Elden Ring," which has turned out to be a success both with critics and fans alike. Many gamers have questioned just how involved Martin was in the development of "Elden Ring," especially after he made comments that left fans scratching their heads, suggesting that he hasn't hadn't been involved in the game for years. However, many fans speculated that Martin left traces of himself throughout the landscape, demonstrating a more hands-on approach than initially thought. Unfortunately, Martin has stepped back into the public eye to confirm that he has not, in fact, had as heavy of a hand in development as many thought.

George R. R. Martin insists, no, he didn't name Elden Ring's bosses after his initials

Last week, there was a faint flutter in Elden Ring circles after fans spotted a cute little detail: that George R. R. Martin appeared to have inserted himself into the game while writing its background lore by naming all its major players - who you'll inevitably encounter as bosses at some point or other - after his own initials. In response, the Game of Thrones author has now taken to the internet to dismiss the theory as being all a bit daft.

George R. R. Martin Offers Updates on 'The Winds of Winter' and 'Game of Thrones' Spin-off Series

George R.R. Martin is an incredibly talented writer who has, for the most part, been very upfront and honest about when fans can expect his work, primarily with the progress of the sixth novel in the A Song of Fire and Ice series, titled The Winds of Winter. It has been a long time coming, and the writer made sure fans knew that he is still working on it, even if we've been waiting over ten years for the next novel.

George R. R. Martin Swears He's Still Working On The Winds Of Winter

Fans of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series have had a lot of wonderful things over the years. We got the "Game of Thrones" HBO series. We have several spin-offs on the way. Despite complaints about the final season (which was awful and I will fight you on that), the series as a whole was groundbreaking and enthralling. The thing is, because so many of us hated the ending — which was rushed, too dark, and did things with the characters that made little narrative sense — lots of us are waiting for the next book in the series, "The Winds of Winter." It won't be the last because "A Dream of Spring" is supposed to come after it, but I have serious doubts about that.
