Wherever John Wick goes, things explode. That includes the box office. In fact, John Wick: Chapter 2 did so much damage in theaters that Lionsgate is now looking to expand the IP beyond the flaming hot film franchise starring Keanu Reeves.
Recently, IndieWire learned that co-creator Chad Stahelski, along with screenwriting cohort David Kolstad, will be bringing John Wick to television, or at least the world of John Wick. Under the name The Continental, the series will explore the fascinating, mythological world of assassins and the various franchises of the titular hotel found all around the globe.
It’s also being reported that the series will serve as a prequel to the original John Wick film. Stahelski has also stated that there are plans for Wick himself to make an appearance on the show but clarified that the show will not center around him.
A writer for the show has not been announced nor are there currently any scheduled production or premiere dates.
