Fans of John Wick rejoice! The time has finally come for the spin-off series, The Continental, to premiere on Peacock. We’re actually going back in time to see a young Winston Scott and how he takes over the iconic hotel we all know from the movies. So who plays the character and who else is part of the cast?
The crime drama is only three episodes, with the first debuting Friday, Sept. 22, 2023 on Peacock. Then going forward, one new episode will premiere weekly on the streaming service. So expect episode 2 on Sept. 29, followed by the conclusion on Oct. 6.
The eventual John Wick antagonist will be “dragged into the Hell-scape” of ’70s New York City, per the synopsis. The story will have him face his past that he thought he left behind. He’ll also face the hotel’s “mysterious underworld” to find a way to take control.
So who is playing the younger version of the character? Which other characters will we see? We’ve got the answer for you below!
