With season seven of Game of Thrones officially at its end, you might find yourself craving your weekly Daenerys and Jon Snow fix. Which… I can’t really help you with, honestly.
But! Not all hope is lost! Because this Autumn, Kit Harington (AKA Jon Snow) will be starring in a new short series on BBC called Gunpowder.
The 3-part drama is about the gunpowder plot of 1605, which was an attempted assassination of King James I of England (that, spoiler alert, failed). In it, Harington will play Robert Catesby, the leader of the gunpowder plot and also Harington’s actual ancestor. Yep, Catesby is actually one of Harington’s maternal descendants. How’s that for keeping it in the family?
Unsurprisingly, people are pretty stoked for the thriller.
WOW! Looks EPIC! Amazing cast (Kit Harington, actor, producer, writer, Renaissance Man…) Tom Cullen, Liv Tyler, Shaun Dooley…Can't wait! pic.twitter.com/HVJMGSm0uq

Lol jk sorry.
Anyway, it may not be as fun as watching him fuck his aunt, but it’s something.
