What is dead may never die. These are the words of Game of Thrones’ Ironborn, a relentless Viking-like culture who never says “when” while a horn of ale is being poured. Yet it also speaks to our current moment in pop culture where television shows don’t end; they multiply.

Sometimes this can be a good thing, too, as glimpsed by the generally euphoric reaction to the first Game of Thrones spinoff to make it to the air last year, HBO’s epic House of the Dragon, which recently was just nominated for best TV Drama of the year by the Primetime Emmys. However, it is unlikely to remain the only Game of Thrones spinoff to enter HBO waters, with multiple prequels actively in development… as well as an outright sequel which is being developed by no less than Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow.

Among fans, there’s been a flurry of anticipation and debate about Snow, the working title of Harington’s proposed follow-up to the ending of Game of Thrones, which saw Jon banished (freed?) to live ostensibly as a member of the Night’s Watch beyond the ruins of the Wall. However, one of Harington’s old castmates is decidedly open to joining Harington in that frozen waste: Liam Cunningham, a.k.a. Ser Davos Seaworth.

When we caught up to Cunningham before the SAG-AFTRA strike, we had sat down to chat about his new Dracula reimagining, The Last Voyage of the Demeter. But inevitably Game of Thrones and Snow came up.
