After the end of Game of Thrones, Harington has been seen in Marvel film Eternals, playing Dane Whitman who is expected to have a continuing role in the MCU, and Apple TV+ environmental drama series Extrapolations, playing billionaire CEO Nicholas Bilton.

It has also been reported that he is in development on a Jon Snow sequel series, following up on the world of Game of Thrones after the end of season 8.

In June 2022, George RR Martin said of the series's development in a blog post: "It was Kit Harington who brought the idea to us. I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners, since that has not been cleared for release yet… but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific.

"I am involved, just as I am with [the Thrones prequels in the works] The Hedge Knight and The Sea Snake and Ten Thousand Ships, and all the animated shows. Kit’s team have visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant, talented writer/consultants to hammer out the show.

"The likelihood of all four series getting on the air... Well, I’d love it, but that’s not the way it works, usually."
