Revealed: New Posters for the Upcoming “John Wick” Spin-off Miniseries “The Continental”

Still riding high off the success of “John Wick: Chapter 4”, Lionsgate Television and Thunder Road Pictures have revealed the new teaser posters for the upcoming spin-off miniseries titled “The Continental”. The three-part series will stream exclusively on Peacock this September and is helmed by showrunners Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward.

The title refers to the “chain” of hotels in the John Wick movies that serve as a safe haven for members of the criminal underworld. They each have their individual owners, but they operate under the authority of the High Table, a council of twelve crime lords that govern the underworld’s most powerful syndicates. The New York Continental is ran by Winston Scott (played in the movies by the great Ian McShane). The miniseries is set in the 1970s and will show how a younger Winston (played by Colin Woodell) came to run the New York Continental.

It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out considering it’s a story set within the John Wick universe that won’t feature the eponymous character or it’s star, Keanu Reeves. It’s also not being directed by Chad Stahelski who has led all four feature films. So there are plenty of questions. But there is also lots of potential. The John Wick universe is a rich and vibrant world filled with colorful and charismatic characters. There’s so much to explore. And what better place to start than the Continental Hotel.

Are you excited for “The Continental”? Will you be watching it this Fall? What do you think of the new posters?

  1. No. Just, no. Hollywood is so bereft of originality it is painful.

    Lol truly pathetic how this is where they go for “original storytelling”.

  2. I am a big John Wick fan, the kind who can watch any of the films repeatedly. That being said, I’m not thrilled about this project. I don’t think we need to go prequel with this franchise at all. It’s just another way the “creative” entertainment industry tries to bleed money off the classics in my opinion.

    • I love the movies also. And that’s a big reason why I don’t know what to expect from these. There’s so many questions. Optimistically there is material there that could make for a good project. But it could also fall woefully short.
