Starring Colin Woodell, Mel Gibson, Ayomide Adegun, Ben Robson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Jessica Allain, Mishel Prada, Nhung Kate and Peter Greene, the series is based on the blockbuster action franchise John Wick starring Keanu Reeves.
The Continental follows a young Winston Scott, played by Colin Woodell, through the underworld of New York in the 1970s. He will battle demons from his past and attempt to take control of The Continental, the iconic hotel that serves as a meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals.
Scott is joined by Mel Gibson’s Cormac, Ayomide Adegun’s Charon, Ben Robson’s Frankie, Hubert Point-Du Jour’s Miles, Jessica Allain’s Lou, Mishel Prada’s KD, Nhung Kate’s Yen and Peter Greene’s Uncle Charlie.
“The John Wick films have created one of the most immersive, detailed and enjoyable universes we’ve seen on the screen in the last decade. We are extremely proud to play a part in continuing to build that universe, offering viewers an insight into the origins of the infamous Continental Hotel and its incredible characters,” said Chris Mansolillo, director, content acquisition, Prime Video.
Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward serve as writers and showrunners on The Continental.
The John Wick films have grossed nearly USD 600 million worldwide to date, with each film outperforming its predecessor. The latest film of the franchise, John Wick: Chapter Four, will hit the theatres on March 24, 2023.
