John Wick TV Show Heads to Starz with Keanu Reeves Attached

However, while at the TCA winter press tour, Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht announced that Starz and Lionsgate were developing the series.

The fandom of dog-adoring hitman John Wick and his universe will hit the small screen with a TV spinoff series on the way.

Set in a hyper-real version of Los Angeles, the series maintains the urgency of the action along with the dry humor from the John Wick movies, producers say.

Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, Man in the High Castle) is the showrunner and will pen the script. Other members of the team behind the film franchise that executive produces alongside Reeves include Thunder Road Pictures' Basil Iwanyk, Chad Stahelski, John Wick franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, along with Collins and David Leitch.

There's no word on whether or not the series will have any crossover with the franchise's upcoming third installment, which is set to arrive in 2019. I don't know about you, but I'm damn glad this is happening, as I could use a weekly dose of Wick in my life (especially if Chapter 3 brings John's tale to a close, allowing him and his dog to finally rest in peace). "John Wick" star Keanu Reeves is expected to appear, eventually.

The hotel behind the John Wick movies is getting its own TV series - The Continental. I think the world is very vast, and everything I've heard from it is very positive. "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".

No premiere date has been announced, and it's unclear where the series will pick up in relation to the timelines of the two films.

Starz is a Lionsgate company and Lionsgate releases the John Wick films.
