This is exciting: A John Wick-inspired TV series is now officially in development at Starz.

The premium cable network is working on a show titled The Continental, which will be set in the John Wick universe with a pilot that will be shot (and shot, and shot, and shot!) by Chad Stahelski (the co-director of John Wick and the sole director of John Wick: Chapter 2).

The Continental is focused on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins. Only this version will be set in “hyper-real” Los Angeles instead of New York, like in the films.

“This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” pledged Starz President & CEO Chris Albrecht. “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.”

Golden Globe Nominee Chrissy Metz on Finding Happiness After Years of Dieting, Depression

  Golden Globe Nominee Chrissy Metz on Finding Happiness After Years of Dieting, Depression Ever since NBC’s smash hit drama This Is Uspremiered, breakout star Chrissy Metz has found fame and a calling as a role model for body positivity. And on Sunday night, she is nominated for the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a television series. But just a few years ago, Metz was nearing a breaking point resulting from a decade-long spiral of depression and self-doubt, she told PEOPLE in February. Be sure to check out PEOPLE’s full Golden Globes coverage to get the latest news on Hollywood’s big night. “I’d be getting maybe two auditions a year, and I’d always see the same small group of girls,” said Metz, who was a size 12 when she was first scouted but dropped 50 lbs. at the recommendation of her then-manager before moving to L.A. Depressed and “eating my feelings,” Metz gained more than 100 lbs. before a panic attack on her 30th birthday sent her to the hospital and snapped her back into reality. She set about overhauling herself physically and emotionally, including following doctor’s orders to lose weight. “I was so gung ho, I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months,” she said. “All I did was eat a 2,000-calorie diet and walk 20 minutes a day.” As the numbers on the scale fell, Metz regained confidence. Then she landed the recurring part on American Horror Story: Freak Show that would kick-start her career. Playing a “fat lady” meant stepping into a fat suit. “It was sobering,” she said.

The John Wick TV series is happening, people. While we heard a while ago that Lionsgate was Starz ’s president made clear that the show and the movies will exist “side-by-side make a cameo in the show , which would make sense given that John Wick : Chapter 3 is already in the works .

Writer-producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) will write the series and serve as showrunner.

One obvious question is whether John Wick star Keanu Reeves will make an on-screen appearance (he is one of the show’s producers).

One less obvious — but potentially far more meaningful — question is whether Ian McShane will have a regular role. There’s nothing to suggest he will at this time. But in the films, McShane’s character Winston owns and runs The Continental. McShane is on another TV series right now — which would normally contractually prevent him being a regular on a second show — but that other series is American Gods which is also on Starz (and the network would presumably be more than happy to have the British actor reprise his role on this project). That’s a lot of supposition, however, and keep in mind The Continental doesn’t even have a series order yet.

Starz has announced series premiere dates for three upcoming originals, “Howards End,” “Vida” and “Sweetbitter” and a greenlight for a television series adaptation of the “ John Wick ” franchise. ‘ John Wick ’ TV Series Adaptation In The Works At Starz .

Starz is in development on a TV series adaptation of the Lionsgate film franchise “ John Wick ,” the network announced on Friday. Read original story ‘ John Wick ’ TV Adaptation in the Works at Starz At TheWrap.

The Continental seems promising, though, because, unlike some carefully negotiated TV versions of film franchises, the premise doesn’t seem too dramatically limited from what was appealing about the films in the first place. And hopefully, there won’t be a dead puppy involved.
