The Continental, a John Wick prequel series set to premiere in 2023, will be featured on Prime Video internationally in all regions where Amazon’s streaming service is accessible, with the exception of Israel and the Middle East.
The Continental, an NBCU streaming service that Lionsgate Television produces, will debut on Peacock in the United States after formerly airing on Starz. According to Deadline, Peacock, which also purchased the rights to the John Wick film franchise, is a better fit for the three-part action event series.
The Continental delves into the history and inner workings of the opulent Continental Hotel, which acts as an assassins’ haven and is a central element of the John Wick universe. It was narrated from the viewpoint of a young Winston Scott, played by Colin Woodell, who played the hotel manager in the movie series, which was performed by Ian McShane. Throughout the course of the series, viewers will follow Winston as he navigates the seedy side of ’70s New York, battling ghosts from his past while attempting to take over the famous hotel, which serves as a gathering place for the world’s most dangerous criminals.
Along with Mel Gibson as Cormac, Ayomide Adegun as a young Charon, Peter Greene as Uncle Charlie, Hubert Point-Du Jour as Miles, Jessica Allain as Lou, Mishel Prada as KD, and Nhung Kate as Yen round out the cast as Woodell.
It is not anticipated that the movie actor Keanu Reeves will appear in the TV show.
