In Game of Thrones, the HBO series produced by DB Weiss and David Benioff, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was resurrected in the sixth series. However, so far in the books, Jon Snow is still dead, given he was stabbed at the end of the fifth A Song of Ice and Fire book, A Dance With Dragons. Will Jon Snow be brought to life in the sixth book, The Winds of Winter?
When Jon Snow was stabbed by a group of mutineers at the end of fifth series of Game of Thrones (and at the end of A Dance with Dragons) there were a few differences between these versions.

Jon goes to tell Queen Selyse his decision, but as goes to do so, Wick Wittlestick slashes Jon’s throat with a dagger, before Bowen Marsh, one of his Black Brothers, leads of group of men to stab Jon, telling him it was “for the watch.”

He is stabbed four times, and the moment ends with him passing out.
While this death was similar in the series, the reason behind it was slightly different, as the show planted seeds of doubt in Jon’s leadership of the Night’s Watch given his desire to aid the Wildlings beyond The Wall and his view on the White Walkers.
His death was not a long one, however, as Melisandre (Carice van Houten) brought Jon back to life near the beginning of the sixth series of the show, which was clearly a very necessary thing to do.
Jon Snow becomes a key figure in the rest of the series, as he brings about the death of the tyrannical queen Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) , his lover.
So, is it fair to say Jon will definitely be brought back to life in The Winds of
