Handsome former political leader Khal Drogo/Jason Momoa will stay dead in Westeros, but on an alternate timeline, he will be resurrected as a character in a Netflix Western, possibly one who will nearly always show up sweaty, shirtless, and draped in bear pelts.

Entertainment Weekly reports (opens in new tab) that the streaming company's latest drama will be Frontier, "an action-packed adventure drama following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts."

Sooo…like Game of Thrones minus the dragons. Just be sure to keep him away from any pillows, you hear? Also, "fur trading" *needs* to become a euphemism.
