Today, Peacock unveiled new photos from The Continental, the three part prequel to the John Wick franchise premiering this fall.

The Continental is set to explore the origin story and inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel, told from the perspective of the hotel manager, a young Winston Scott (Colin Woodell, based on Ian McShane’s character in the films), who gets dragged through 1975 New York to face a past he thought he’d left behind. In an attempt to seize control of the iconic hotel, which serves as a meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals, Winston charts a deadly course through the mysterious underworld of New York City. 

In the photos, Woodell is pictured suited staring at presumably someone speaking to him off camera and in another shot, is surrounded by a bunch of people with weapons. The new stills also tease Mishel Prada’s KD and Mel Gibson as Cormac. Ayomide Adegun’s Charon (based on Lance Reddick’s character) is also pictured, peering through an elevator gate at The Continental. Hubert Point-Du Jour and Jessica Allain appear as Miles and Lou in carnage from some kind of scuffle; Jeremy Bobb takes photos from inside of his car. Furthermore, Nhung Kate’s Yen and Ben Robson’s Frankie are talking to what looks like Winston. The series also stars Peter Greene as Uncle Charlie and Katie McGrath as The Adjudicator.

Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward serve as writers and showrunners on The Continental and executive produce alongside Albert Hughes, Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee, Chad Stahelski, Derek Kolstad, David Leitch, Shawn Simmons, Paul Wernick, Rhett Reese, and Marshall Persinger. Hughes directs the first and third nights, and Charlotte Brandstrom directs the second night. The Continental is set to premier this September on Peacock.
