Game of Thrones director David Nutter, has quashed all fan theories around the slain Jon Snow's redemption by confirming that Jon Snow is really dead.

Snow's murder in the season finale of Game of Thrones season 5 had broken many hearts and given rise to fan theories around his possible redemption.

Snow, played by 28-year-old Kit Harington, served his final turn in the series by being savagely stabbed to death by a gang of bloodthirsty Night's Watchmen, the Independent reported.

Countless Reddit threads dissected Snow's final vow to find hints that there were sparks of life left in the character, while others speculated that he will be brought back to life by the priestess Melisandre or that he never actually died to begin with.

However, Nutter said that 'great guy' Harington was sad to leave the crew and it was an emotional feeling as well, but he felt it was important to set up the sequence as quickly as possible so people didn't expect it or wait for it.

"I didn't want it to linger. I wanted it to catch you by surprise."

He noted that his concern was to take care of Jon Snow, and "he's now deader than dead," the director added.

Harington himself seemed to also confirm the statement, saying "I've been told I?m dead. I'm dead. I'm not coming back next season. So that's all I can tell you, really."
