'John Wick' TV Series Adaptation in the Works

'John Wick' TV Series Adaptation in the Works

The series will be executive produced and overseen by showrunner Chris Collins (who was an executive producer on Sons of Anarchy and a writer on The Wire). Stahelski will direct the premiere of The Continental, should the script move forward.

For well over six months, there's been talk brewing about a John Wick TV show getting spun off from the films. We're about to find out, because the amusing five-star hotel with likely Michelin Star dining in John Wick, which grew into being a whole underground franchise with its own governing bylaws and multiple, unique-to-assassins currencies by John Wick: Chapter 2, is about to be the basis of its own TV show!

USA 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.

Japan protests after Chinese frigate sails near…
The Chinese side explained the move by saying that its navy was in the area to monitor and follow two vessels belonging to Japan. They say the submarine continued to move northwest and left the contiguous zone into the East China Sea without resurfacing.

The John Wick universe is moving to television. It's very tied to the film [in that] it's about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation to those people, which is cool.

The wildly successful dog revenge fantasy franchise John Wick is coming to premium cable, and expanding the film's universe beyond the steely gaze and monotone voice of Keanu Reeves' titular character. Additionally, "you can expect to see him at some point of the series", Starz's head of programming Carmi Zlotnik said during Starz's TCA session. The first episode is scheduled to be directed by Chad Stahelski, who also directed "John Wick 2" and co-directed the first film. I think the world is very vast, and everything I've heard from it is very positive. Key to the reboots is having the original producers involved, which The Continental has with Lionsgate and the John Wick's original producing team.
