John Wick TV Series Set For Peacock

Go wake up your puppy.

According to Deadline, "John Wick" spin-off "The Continental" is heading to Peacock after originally being slated for Starz. Keanu Reeves was also reportedly going to make an appearance in the series, but that is proving to no longer be true. "The Continental" will be a three-part series that will now live alongside the "John Wick" movies on the NBC-streamer.

The series will center on the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins in the movies, and Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said "the show and the movies exist side by side." He also teased that it'll have the same high-octane action of the films. "This series is truly unlike anything else on TV," he said. "It 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."

Chris Collins ('The Wire,' 'Sons of Anarchy') is writing the series and he'll serve as showrunner. 'John Wick' director Chad Stahelski will helm the first episode and franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad is also on board.
