We got our first look at the upcoming drama series set in the John Wick universe during the 2023 San Diego Comic-Con, but now Peacock has dropped the trailer for The Continental: From the World of John Wick. It will serve as a prequel to the films starring Keanu Reeves and centers around Winston Scott (Colin Woodell), who came to acquire The Continental, a notorious chain of hotels that Scott established as a neutral haven for housing assassins.

Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his future throne.”
