Peacock TV increased excitement for the upcoming John Wick prequel, The Continental: From the World of John Wick, by sharing more images. These new pictures feature Mel Gibson as the crime kingpin Cormac, Ayomide Adegun as Charon, and Colin Woodell as the younger version of Winston Scott, whom fans may remember as the owner of the New York Continental Hotel portrayed by Ian McShane in the John Wick film series, with Keanu Reeves in the main lead role.
The new television miniseries, set to premiere on September 22, has just released a batch of images. These images give us a glimpse of the cast, including Misha Prada as NYPD detective KD, Jeremy Bobb as Mayhew, Jessica Allain as Lou, Hubert Point-Du Jour as Miles, Nhung Kate as Yen, and Ben Robson as Frankie, who plays the older brother of Winston. Apart from Woodel portraying a younger version of a character from the original film series, Ayomide Adegun will also portray Charon, a character previously played by the late Lance Reddick in the action thriller film series directed by Chad Stahelski.
What is The Continental About?
The prequel series will focus on Winston, John Wick’s friend and companion, during his early years. It will show how he became the owner of The Continental Hotel in the 1970s, a safe place for assassins. The show will delve into the hotel’s beginnings and follow Winston as he faces a challenging situation, confronting a past he wanted to forget.
What’s Next in the John Wick Universe?
In addition to The Continental, fans of the John Wick film series have another spinoff to anticipate. Ballerina will premiere on June 7, 2024, and it’s directed by Len Wiseman. The movie will fill in the events between the third and fourth chapters of John Wick’s story. Ana de Armas will star as Rooney, and Lance Reddick will reprise his role as Charon, serving as a tribute to the late actor’s final appearance on the big screen.
