Peacock gives us the official release dates for John Wick three-part series, The Continental

July 23rd, 2023 by Marc Comments

The Continental, the first John Wick universe TV series, has been given its official release date and a new teaser (below).

While I previously reported the series was expected to arrive in September, it’s been confirmed that the series will be a three-night event and will kick off on Sept 22nd, then Sept 29th and wrapping on Oct 6th.

I had hoped it might air back-to-back over three consecutive nights in September but it’s going to be a three-week adventure it seems.

The series comes after John Wick 4’s release earlier this year with The Ballerina spinoff movie set for release next year.

The three-part event series will explore the origin behind the iconic hotel-for-assassins centerpiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott, as he’s dragged into the Hell-scape of 1970’s New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind.

Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his future throne.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
