John Wick Prequel Series, The Continental, is Moving From Starz to Peacock



John Wick is one of the most elusive and dangerous assassins we’ve ever seen on the silver screen, and now the prequel series, The Continental, is making a cunning move to a new streaming service. The show will shift from its initial home on Starz to the NBCU streaming service, Peacock, according to reports from Deadline.

Sources told Deadline the three-part action event series is a natural fit for Peacock, which is home to all three John Wick films. The Continental is expected to debut in 2023, exploring the original story and inner working of the exclusive Continental Hotel, which serves as a neutral base for assassins within the John Wick franchise. The series describes the Continental Hotel as, ‘A chain of hotels located all around the world that function as a neutral territory for members of the criminal underworld. They are frequented by many hitmen and notorious murderers.’

Woodell is known for his performances in The Flight Attendant, Ambulance, and Unfriended: Dark Web.
