Looks like it's officially found a home.

Keanu Reeves' John Wick TV Series Is Officially Happening on Starz

We’re still more than a year away from the third entry in the John Wick franchise—starring Keanu Reeves as the titular assassin, who’s really just trying to bond with a dog—but fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the previously rumored television spinoff has found a home on Starz.

Set in the same world as the John Wick films, The Continental will tell the story of the Continental hotel, a place where the world’s deadliest assassins go to lay low when they aren’t out and about killing people. Though Reeves has not been confirmed to reprise his role as Wick on the series, he’ll serve as co-executive producer along with Basil Iwanyk and Chad Stahelski, who directed all three John Wick films. Chris Collins (The Man in the High Castle, The Wire) will serve as showrunner and writer.

Though The Continental’s home on television might make you assume that the show won’t be nearly as action-packed as the film series it’s tied to, Starz is confident that the show will be able to deliver on epic fight scenes. Said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht today at the Television Critics Association winter press tour:

“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.”

Given how visually stunning some of John Wick’s choreography was, The Continental has some fairly large shoes to fill. Hopefully, we can expect those shoes to be filled (with blood) when The Continental drops some time in the near future.

PLEASE DON'T KILL ANYMORE DOGS

If it's good I'll definitely add a Starz subscription.

If a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?
