About The Continental: From the World of John Wick TV Series:

The Continental: From the World of John Wick (The Continental ) is an American neo noir crime-action drama television miniseries developed by Greg Coolidge, Kirk Ward and Shawn Simmons that serves as a spin-off and a prequel in the John Wick franchise. Coolidge and Ward served as showrunners for the series and wrote the scripts alongside Simmons and Ken Kristensen. Albert Hughes directed the first and third episodes, and Charlotte Brändström directed the second. The show stars Mel Gibson and Colin Woodell.

While planning the story for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum in January 2017, Derek Kolstad and Chad Stahelski were also conceiving ideas for a prequel story, suggesting that a prequel would be best told in the form of a television series. In June 2017, the series was confirmed to be in full development, and the story would be called The Continental, focusing on the hotel that acts as a safe haven for assassins in the John Wick universe.

Lionsgate gave the project an official green-light in January 2018 and planned for the series to air on its Starz network. Initial reports indicated Chris Collins would serve as showrunner.

Principal photography began in November 2021 in Budapest, Hungary.

In April 2023, the series working title of The Continental was finalized as The Continental: From the World of John Wick.

On August 15, 2022, Starz sold the series to Peacock. In March 2023, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chair Joe Drake stated that the series was expected to be released in late 2023, also saying that the episodes were “nearly finished”. In July 2023, it was announced that the series would premiere on September 22, 2023, on Peacock in the United States, and on Prime Video internationally.
