'John Wick' TV Series Coming Soon With Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves to produce and possibly appear on the show.

Starz announced on Friday that it was moving forward with a TV series set in the John Wick Universe. The show will be set in Los Angeles (not New York City, like the movies) and “maintain the urgency of the action along with the dry humor from the John Wick movies.” 

Keanu Reeves is attached as a producer and he’s expected to cameo at some point, while Chad Stahelski, who directed John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2, will helm the pilot; The Wire and Sons of Anarchy writer Chris Collins were hired as showrunner. The cast has yet to be announced.

“This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht in a press release. “The Continental promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world.”
