Peacock will produce a prequel show to John Wick in 2023 ...

The NBC subscription service Peacock, which provides the prequel series to John Wick, is expected to launch in 2023. The Continental, a three-part series set in the Continental Hotel, was originally scheduled to launch on Starz. Peacock has since acquired the series along with the rights to the John Wick trilogy.

The Continental is a hotel's origin story, which serves as a backdrop for the John Wick films. The Continental Hotel is neutral territory, which makes it a natural location for meetings and parallels between deadly agents of the underworld.

Winston Scott, played by Colin Woodell (The Purge), is introduced to the show as he prepares to take on his new role as the Continentals' new manager. Other new characters include Ben Robson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Mishel Prada (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Nhung Kate.

The next installment of the John Wick franchise, John Wick: Chapter Four, is scheduled for theatrical release in March 2023.
