Speculation on The Continental Plot
Kevin Beggs, chairman of Lionsgate Television, revealed to Deadline that The Continental would examine the history of the hotel with the same name. The Chairman of Lionsgate Television Kevin Beggs stated to Deadline that The Continental would investigate Winston’s past, as played by Ian McShane.
Beggs explained that “What we are exploring in The Continental” is Winston, the young Winston, and how he and his confederates found their ways into this hotel. He and his team have since met them in the movie franchise forty years later.”

He said that the spin-off series offers an “interesting background to explore the origins and evolution of The Continental,” which is (within the movie franchise), the assassin’s hotel in which it is impossible to kill anyone. But if you decide to venture out of the hotel you’re still safe. This technique is used in many movie plots. Winston is the one responsible for this.
Beggs also revealed that season 1 of The Continental’s plot will be a standalone. The season is comprised of “three essentially 90-minute episodes which you could interpret as either a limited series, or as an event series.”
The Continental Cast
While we may hear familiar names, The Continental is set 40 years before the John Wick films so we won’t likely see many of these familiar faces.
Characters like Winston Scott and Charon are being played by actors who will play their younger counterparts (Colin Woodell & Ayomide Adegun, respectively).
John Wick will not return, sorry. Keanu Reeves will play a producer role behind-the-scenes, but Beggs stated to Deadline the background of The Continental was “way back preJohn Wick and even before young John Wick”, and that “that character isn’t finding his way into this universe.”
There are many interesting casting options that offer characters and other characters that will keep your attention. Katie McGrath portrays The Adjudicator while Mel Gibson plays the mysterious Cormac.
