John Wick to become TV series with Keanu Reeves on board

John Wick: Chapter 2

Story by Jack Foley

A TV spin-off of John Wick is being developed with leading man Keanu Reeves on board.

The series was unveiled by US cable channel Starz as part of its new line-up. The show will be called The Continental and will be based around the hotel that forms a focal point for many of the characters (or rival assassins) in John Wick’s world.

The New York Continental is overseen in the movie by Ian McShane, while a Rome counterpart had Franco Nero as its main figure.

As its name suggests, the show’s focus will be the wider world of assassins alluded to in last year’s John Wick: Chapter 2 and the inner workings of the Continental Hotel chain that serves as a refuge for them.

Wick originators Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are involved as producers alongside franchise writer Derek Kolstad, with Reeves also on board as a producer. He has also hinted that he may even appear in the series.

Chris Collins is in charge of writing the first episode and will run the show, with Stahelski stepping in to direct that initial outing.
