Chad Stahelski, who helmed the three John Wick films, explained how the show will offer a new perspective. Read to know more.
In an interview with a daily, Chad Stahelski talked about John Wick TV show, The Continental. He said that the angle they are working on The Continental TV show right now is a different perspective on the whole world. The plot would be from different characters' points of view and what the breadth of the world is. Whereas in John Wick film, he is following a time period that is almost just a week in the life of one man, for whom everything spirals out of control.
Chad Stahelski added that the angle that the other producers and writers on the TV show are coming up for is a very different timeline structure and a very different perspective of the character. It deals with how deep the world goes, and not just assassins but everything that is included. He stated that a lot of the origin stories are of some of the characters that the audience has already seen in Wick. It’s got some very interesting things, it is a very interesting take on the Wick world, which he thinks is pretty cool. Stahelski mentioned that it would not be from the John Wick perspective. Not that John Wick would not be involved with it, it is just not from his perspective.

It will show a chain of hotels located all around the globe that function as a neutral territory for members of underworld criminals. There is no news about the cast of the series till now and the beginning of production is also not set. Lionsgate has partnered up with Starz to make the show happen.
