‘John Wick’ TV Series Gets ‘Continental’ Title, Possible Keanu Reeves Cameo

John Wick TV Series The Continental Keanu Reeves
Lionsgate

Details of the John Wick franchise future have been hard to come by, especially for a TV tie-in, but consider the assassin’s next stay booked. Director Chad Stahelski reveals that a John Wick TV series would likely explore the deadly Continental hotel, and perhaps feature a cameo from Wick himself.

Stahelski gave additional details of the proposed Lionsgate series to IndieWire, including development title The Continental and its intent to explore the “cool, Wick-ian, magical, and mysterious world” of in the second film. Stahelski even hopes to direct a few episodes, saying of the premise:

They’ve got a really good structure. 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. I think the world is very vast, and everything I’ve heard from it is very positive. […] It’s something that studio seems very, very intent on [making] and very, very behind.

Last we heard, Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad were kicking around the idea of a prequel John Wick TV series, though we at least know The Continental wouldn’t be Wick-centric. Stahelski does “think [Keanu] would make an appearance,” also comparing the breadth of action sequences to Game of Thrones:

Look at ‘Battle of the Bastards.’ As an action designer, I think that’s the best battle I’ve ever seen on TV. They did a great job, and they weren’t careless with their money. They planned it, they boarded it — you watch the behind-the-scenes, [it’s clear] the guys did everything right.

Granted, they’re the biggest budgeted show on TV right now, but could we do something interesting with ‘John Wick’ with what we have? Yeah. I’d like to give it a go and prove to the TV world that you can have feature action on a TV show. It would be a nice little feather in my cap, sure.

We’ll see what shakes out on Lionsgate’s The Continental in the coming months, but can a John Wick series work without the man himself?
