What to know

Keanu Reeves acts as producer for this Wick-verse limited series

The Continental is a limited series produced by Lionsgate Television and set to debut on the streaming platform Peacock. The show is set within the John Wick universe but takes place before the first movie, making it a prequel. The Continental is made up of three 90-minute episodes two of which are directed by Albert Hughes, known for Menace II Society and The Book of Eli. Keeping continuity with the universe set out in the movies, the original creative team return as producers. That includes Keanu Reeves, Chad Stahelski, and Derek Kolstad all of whom have had a variety of roles in getting the project off the ground.

The lead character in The Continental is a younger Winston than in the movies. He is played by Colin Woodell who takes over the role from Ian McShane. Opposite Woodell is veteran actor Mel Gibson playing Cormac who is a new entry into the franchise. In the John Wick universe, where there is blood and a body to clean up, there is only one person to turn to: Uncle Charlie. Peter Greene takes on the role of a young Uncle Charlie getting his start alongside Winston. Keeping the tone ominous is ‘The Adjudicator’ played by Katie McGrath who joins an expanded cast that includes Jessica Allain, Jeremy Bobb, Ayomide Adegun, and Nhung Kate.
