WATCH: First teaser drops for John Wick spinoff The Continental

April 12th, 2023 by Marc Comments

When the first poster dropped last night for the John Wick spinoff series, The Continental (here), I guessed that the trailer couldn’t be far behind… and I was right.

Just dropped is the first teaser for the three-part limited series which will focus on The Continental Hotel in New York in the 1970s, the centre of the John Wick universe in the four Keanu Reeves-starring movies.

With the second spinoff, Ballerina, starring Ana De Armas set for screens next year, that’s three massive John Wick events in the space of less than two years… this franchise is big business and as long as it stays as fun and interesting as it has been so far, I’m here for every bit of it.

See you all in September, Wick fans!

Loads of new details drop about John Wick TV series The Continental

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.

The Continental: From the World of John Wick is streaming September 2023 on Peacock

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….
