To this, the group chair of Lionsgate television Kevin Beggs added, “John Wick has become part of the cultural zeitgeist with a massive, passionately engaged fan base around the world. We’re delighted to partner with Peacock to continue expanding the John Wick universe. This agreement reflects the collaboration of our Motion Picture Group, which has grown the franchise from the beginning and was excited by the opportunity to bring it to the next level, Jim Packer and his Worldwide Television Distribution team, which found the perfect home for The Continental and the Lionsgate Television creative group, which created a brilliant and enduring property that is one of the most highly anticipated streaming events of 2023.” 

 

The series, which is written by Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward, is set against the backdrop of a continental hotel. This venue happens to be a common haunt for the members of the underworld to meet up. The hotel is taken care of and managed by Winston Scott, whose role will be played by Ian McShane. The series will take the audience to a time when Scott was young. Little Scott dreams of seizing control of the hotel, and in order to do so, he needs to have a strong underworld connection.  

While Keanu Reeves plays the role of the main assassin in the other offerings, here the focus is on the hotel and Scott. The series will start streaming around when John Wick 4 will hit the theatres i.e. on March 24, 2023.
