Ever since Game of Thrones came to an end last season, fans have wanted to know if Kit Harrington will return as Jon Snow. He is a fan favorite and killing him off at the end of Season 5 shocked everyone. The idea that Kit’s character could be dead is something that fans just can’t be okay with, and they want him to return. Time Out got the chance to talk to Kit Harrington and he did actually confirm that he will be returning for Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The thing is, Kit is not confirming that his character will actually be alive when he comes back. Kit is playing it up like he was only there to film himself as a dead man.
This interview with Kit Harrington won’t be running until April, but they are sharing a few details of it now. Kit is teasing fans about what is going on with his character Jon Snow and was actually willing to finally confirm that he will be back on the show again. Here is what Kit Harrington had to say about it all.
“Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series. I filmed some scenes of me being dead – [jokily] it’s some of my best work.”
When asked about what happens in the next season of Game of Thrones, Kit Harrington shared a few details, but it wasn’t very much. He said, “I don’t have a clue. I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!”
Of course, everyone knew that Kit Harrington was going to be back because of all spoilers that have been coming out. Everyone is just sure that Jon Snow is still alive somehow, but Kit is not going to confirm this to the fans and is still just teasing them about his death. Of course, Kit Harrington wouldn’t be allowed to share the news that he is back and alive because that would be a huge spoiler. Everyone would love to hear him actually admit that Jon Snow is alive and well.
Back in November, TV Line shared that a poster confirmed that Jon Snow will be back on the show, but it doesn’t tell all the details, of course. The poster showed Kit Harrington’s character on it and still alive, but he is covered in blood. This made fans think that Jon Snow somehow survived. Maisie Williams did also confirm that Kit Harrington’s character is dead, confusing everyone even more. The cast is doing a great job of keeping what is going on a secret from the fans. This one will not be revealed before Season 6 airs.
The only other thing that this Game of Thrones poster confirmed is that the show will return in April. This gives fans about a month to keep wondering whether Kit Harrington will only be on the show as a corpse, or if his character is actually returning. Kit was spotted in Belfast, where the show films, and this would raise the question of why he was there if he was simply filming scenes as a dead body. Kit Harrington did not do a very good job of keeping himself from being seen by the fans.
Are you shocked to hear that Kit Harrington did confirm he will be back on Game of Thrones? Do you think that Kit Harrington’s character Jon Snow is still alive? Sound off in the comments below and don’t miss Game of Thrones when it returns to HBO on April 24 for an amazing Season 6.
