How ‘The Continental’ Became ‘John Wick’s First Spin-Off Series

Since news first began circulating a few years ago that the John Wick film franchise would be receiving a spin-off in series form, fans have been counting down the days until check-in. Now that we’re just days away from picking up our keys at the front desk, it’s hard to believe that the premiere of The Continental is almost here. And, although it took a long time for viewers to sit still, the production team’s journey was an even lengthier one. In an interview with Collider’s Christina Radish, The Continental and John Wick franchise producers, Erica Lee and Basil Iwanyk opened up about the long road of building the highly anticipated spin-off series.

​ The Continental tells the origin story of John Wick’s Winston Scott and stars Colin Woodell, Mel Gibson, Ben Robson, and more.
