Are You Prepared To Check Into The Continental?
The first trailer for the three-night mini-series has checked in online. Enjoy your stay at The Continental.
While we are still digesting John Wick Chapter 4 (That ending was unexpected, wasn’t it?), the world of The High Table continues on. Coming to Peacock later this year is the three-part Mini-series The Continental. The series is a prequel to the John Wick movies and is set in the 1970s. No Ian McShane as Winston this time around, instead the part will be played by Colin Woodell. Mel Gibson has also been cast as the character of Cormac while Ayomide Adegun will play the role of Charon, a younger version of the late Lance Reddick’s character. The first trailer for the mini-series has today been unveiled. Time to make a reservation at The Continental:
As well as Woodell, Gibson, and Adegun, the series features Hubert Point-Du Jour as Miles, Jessica Allain as Lou, Mishel Prada as KD, Nhung Kate as Yen, Ben Robson as Frankie, Peter Greene as Uncle Charlie, Jeremy Bobb as Mayhew, Katie McGrath as “The Adjudicator”, Ray McKinnon as Jenkins, Adam Shapiro as Lemmy, Mark Musashi as Hansel, and Marina Mazepa as Gretel.
The Continental tells the background story of how Winston Scott came to his position as proprietor of The Continental Hotel in the 1970s and establishes it as a safe haven for assassins where no business may take place. It explores real-world events, including the Great Garbage Strike and the American Mafia’s rise to economic power. As Winston Scott is dragged into the Hell-scape of 1970s New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind, he charts a deadly course through New York’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the iconic hotel, which serves as the meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals.
We can check into The Continental this September on Peacock.
