With a cast led by Colin Woodell and Mel Gibson, The Continental lands in the Prime Video catalog on September 22, 2023.
After a long wait, tomorrow Prime Video Spain premieres in its catalog The Continental, the John Wick spin-off series whose plot takes place before the events of the films directed by Chad Stahelski.
Starring Colin Woodell y Mel Gibsonthe plot of The Continental revolves around a young Winston Scott before he becomes the manager of the famous assassin’s hotel.

The John Wick director’s advice for The Continental
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Albert Hughesdirector of The Continental, has revealed the advice that Chad Stahelski gave him when approaching the John Wick prequel series that we will see in Prime Video.
“We did a Zoom and (Stahelski) was excited to talk and tell me (that) basically did whatever he had to do and whatever inspired him. “I was glad he said that because I don’t think I would ever want to step into any man or woman’s sandbox and duplicate what they do,” the director explains.
It seems Hughes took Stahelski’s advice to heart, as it was previously confirmed that The Continental is different from the big screen entries in the John Wick franchise in several ways.
These are the best tablets to watch movies and series
If you usually watch series when you travel or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for consuming entertainment.
These differences include the series’ approach to fight scenes, as according to Hughes the fights in The Continental they are going to be much shorter than fans are used to.
“I come from the school of Sergio Leone movie lovers, where it’s all about tension, build-up and the quick release of violence. I needed to find a middle ground,” says Hughes.
With a total of three episodes, The Continental premieres in the Prime Video catalog tomorrow, September 22, 2023, although the first evaluations are not very promising. Are you looking forward to watching the John Wick prequel series?
