The Continental, a John Wick spin-off, has received an important update about its premiere date. The show will be arriving very soon.
The John Wick spin-off, The Continental, has officially received its release window. While John Wick and its sequels follow the adventures of the legendary assassin Baba Yaga as he desperately tries to earn his freedom, The Continental will take a very different path. The show will instead be focused on the world of an assassins’ refuge, The Continental Hotel.
While there were previous reports of The Continental releasing in 2023, the window has narrowed even further. According to Collider, the show will premiere on Peacock in September. While an exact date will come as September approaches, a full month span is excellent timing for a project that is still months away from release.
Everything We Know About The Continental
The Continental will be a three-episode series centering on life at The Continental, as the name implies. It will be taking place in the 1970s and will feature many of John Wick‘s star characters. Colin Woodell (Ambulance) will be playing Ian McShane’s Winston, while Ayomide Adegun (The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) will be playing the late Lance Reddick’s Charon.
The show is expected to follow The Continental Hotel’s dealings with the mafia, while also touching on New York City’s garbage strike and the consequences that came from it. Each episode will be 90 minutes long, making each functionally a movie of its own. The Continental is expected to be more character-focused than the John Wick series, allowing for more development of the characters and the world.
Everything about The Continental indicates that it will have a much smaller level of action than the John Wick franchise, though it will largely involve more dealings with the wider world at large. Even without the added locations of the movies, Charon and Winston will be heavily influenced by the criminal underworld as it slowly evolves over the course of the show. While John Wick isn’t likely to appear, The Continental could develop his universe more than even movies could.
