Confirmed to air on Starz:

Set in the same world as the John Wick films, The Continental will tell the story of the Continental hotel, a place where the world’s deadliest assassins go to lay low when they aren’t out and about killing people.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht further stated that "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."

Casting has not been announced, but Keanu Reeves will serve as co-executive producer along with Basil Iwanyk and Chad Stahelski, who directed all three John Wick films, while Chris Collins (The Man in the High Castle, The Wire) will serve as showrunner and writer.

Starz’s ‘John Wick’ Spinoff ‘The Continental’ Will Be Set ‘Way Earlier’ Than Keanu Reeves Movies

“The Continental,” the upcoming TV spinoff of Lionsgate’s “John Wick” franchise, will not be affected by the decision to greenlight a fourth film in the Keanu Reeves-led franchise.

“‘The Continental’ will be way earlier in the history of the series,” Starz COO Jeffrey Hirsch said during his executive session Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “It will be a fresh look at The Continental as the hotel and how that came into the being of John Wick. It’s way back in terms of the timing.”

Starz announced it was developing a TV series focused on the hotel that serves as a safehouse for assassins in development more than a year ago. Hirsch said added that with “John Wick: Chapter 4” slated for a 2021 release, “The Continental” is most likely not going to debut on TV until after that hits theaters.
