Everything We Know So Far About Peacock’s John Wick Spin-Off

Yes, it’s another origin story.

As previously reported in /Film, “The Continental” will focus on the adventures of the young Winston, and is set in 1970s New York. It will explore how the Continental first became a hotel for assassins, an intriguing notion indeed (did a High Table member buy out an existing hotel, or did they build it from the ground up?). Lionsgate TV chairman Kevin Beggs said that the series will be aiming for a 1970s grindhouse vibe, and comparisons to the film “Joker” will be welcome. 

He also said that the series will be presented as three 90-minute episodes, taking its cues from British TV shows like “Sherlock.” It will be presented as a three-night miniseries-like event, making for, essentially, one gigantic 270-minute movie. This seems an appropriate outcropping for “John Wick,” as the last film in the series, “Chapter 4,” ran a whopping 169 minutes unto itself. 

The IMDb page for the show’s first episode has been posted, and the cast will include Mel Gibson (!) as a character named Cormac, as well as Katie McGrath as a mysterious character called The Adjudicator, a professional precursor to the character played by Asia Kate Dillon in “John Wick: Chapter 3.” Ray McKinnon from “Rectify” will also appear, as will Colin Woodell as the younger version of Ian McShane’s character. In the first two “John Wick” movies, David Patrick Kelly played a character named Uncle Charlie, who cleaned up assassination sites. The young version of Uncle Charlie will be played by Peter Greene. The Concierge of the Continental will be played by Sallay Garnett, a precursor to Lance Reddick’s Charon. The young Charon will be played by Ayomide Adegun. Also on the cast is Jeremy Bobb as a character named Mayhew.
