The Continental seems promising, though, because, unlike some carefully negotiated TV versions of film franchises, the premise doesn't seem too dramatically limited from what was appealing about the films in the first place.

A new John Wick television series is in the works at Starz according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The third John Wick film is set to be in theatres May 17th, 2019 and Lionsgate picked up the rights to a script called The Ballerina that is meant to be worked into the universe, as well.

After the launch of John Wick Chapter 2, it was speculated that there might be a television series that would go deeper into the world of John Wick, but now we have confirmation.

A TV series set in the John Wick universe has been given the green light. The ultra-violent film saw Wick brought back into the assassin game following a series of unfortunate and traumatizing events. Key to the reboots is having the original producers involved, which The Continental has with Lionsgate and the John Wick's original producing team. Having a show set entirely around the hotel that houses many of these assassins seems like a great idea to explore this setting even further as this franchise expands over time. "'The Continental' promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world".

"This series is truly unlike anything else on TV", said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. Those details are still likely being ironed out, but hopefully the show - should it continue to move forward - will have larger connections to the movies outside of the name brand. Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick motion pictures, would direct the pilot.
