John Wick The Continental

Sons of Anarchy's Chris Collins plans to pen the script and serve as showrunner.

The hotel behind the John Wick movies is getting its own TV series - The Continental.

For well over six months, there's been talk brewing about a John Wick TV show getting spun off from the films.

The series will be set in the John Wick universe, focusing on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins.

Coming Soon reports that Lionsgate and Starz have confirmed a TV spinoff based on the John Wick films is in the works.

In an interview with Indiewire, Stahelski said: "It's very tied to the film, 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". John Wick: Chapter 3 is now in the works. In a press release, Starz says, "Set in a hyper-real version of Los Angeles, the series maintains the urgency of the action along with the dry humor from the John Wick movies".

Senior Vice President of Original Programming Karen Bailey will oversee for Starz, which has the domestic TV and SVOD rights, while Lionsgate has all global and domestic distribution and home entertainment rights. Thunder Road Pictures' Basil Iwanyk will executive produce alongside the movie's directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, screenwriter Derek Kolstad and Reeves.

"This series is truly unlike anything else on TV", Albrecht said. I think the world is very vast, and everything I've heard from it is very positive.

At the time previous year, Stahelski said "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". After the launch of John Wick Chapter 2, it was speculated that there might be a television series that would go deeper into the world of John Wick, but now we have confirmation.
