In an age where launching an original franchise - much less an entire cinematic universe - is incredibly hard, John Wick is the little intellectual property that could: in the span of a mere four years, the movie has received a sequel, the announcements of a trilogy-capper and a planned spin-off entitled The Ballerina, a comic series, and a video game in development. 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). Starz President of Original Programming Carmi Zlotnick said Keanu Reeves will be involved in multiple capacities. "That is part of the ongoing conversation".
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. John Wick became a huge hit, so much so that John Wick: Chapter 2 hit theaters previous year, and John Wick: Chapter 3 is now gearing up to start filming very soon.
John Wick is the latest feature film to get the small-screen treatment. "There'll be no conflict".

"This is an opportunity to really engage in the phenomenal fan base that has risen up around the John Wick franchises", Albrecht said.
