Max's head of drama Francesca Orsi reveals not all projects will continue in development due to the strike, and while the series starring Kit Harington could ‘go either way,’ the actor and executive producer is still attached.
Bad news for Westeros lovers! The WGA’s ongoing strike has touched every facet of the entertainment industry, both films and series alike. Now, it seems one of the newly affected project is Game of Thrones spinoff series Snow.
In a conversation with Deadline, Max's head of drama Francesca Orsi revealed that not all planned projects will make it to the newly merged mega streaming platform due to the strike as well as internal red tape.
"We're just working deeply with the writers to get it in shape for potential greenlight, but at this point, no, no determination on whether it can go all the way," Orsi stated, adding that Harington is still attached to star and executive produce.
If all goes well, Snow will follow Jon Snow, AKA Aegon Targaryen, in his exploits North of the Wall alongside his newfound Wildling brethren. Despite Bran claiming the Iron Throne for a supposed reign of peace at the end of the GoT series, Jon is a very, very eligible heir as the last known Targaryen. Do we sense some impending political drama?
Although the future is cloudy for the GoT franchise, there are still plans to welcome House of the Dragon Season 2, Ten Thousand Ships, Sea Snake, and The Hedge Knight alongside Snow. Which project will prevail in this Game of Shows?
