Starz and Lionsgate Confirm John Wick Spinoff Series The Continental

John Wick The Continental

U.S. network Starz made the announcement at the Television Critics' Association's winter press tour, adding that it and Lionsgate were working on a series called The Continental, based on the inner workings of the global hotel chain that caters to assassins.

Stahelski also said he thought Reeves might make a cameo in the show, which would make sense given that John Wick: Chapter 3 is already in the works. Starz President of Original Programming Carmi Zlotnick said Keanu Reeves will be involved in multiple capacities.

A TV series set in the John Wick universe has been given the green light.

John Wick is heading to the small screen! The Continental will be a series about the film's hotel chain built for assassins.


What do you think of this?

While it hasn't been confirmed here, it's been rumored that the series may have an appearance from John Wick himself, which could help to establish this series in the overall canon. "This is a chance to engage with the phenomenal fanbase ..." The Continental will explore the inner workings of the Continental hotel.

Speaking to open the Starz panels at the Television Critics Assn. press tour on Friday, network Chief Executive Chris Albrecht said "The Continental" and the movies will exist side by side. John Wick co-director and Chapter Two director Chad Stahelski will direct the pilot.

The Continental is being written by Chris Collins who serves as showrunner. Numerous executive producers, however, are from the the films' original creative team, like Basil Iwanyk, co-director Chad Stahelski, and screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Albrecht expressed excitement for the viable series, saying, "The Continental promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world".
