‘John Wick 5’ Receives Positive Development Update, Multiple Spin-Offs Announced

John Wick Franchise Thrives with Future Releases in the Works

Despite the apparent demise of the iconic character portrayed by Keanu Reeves, the John Wick franchise shows no signs of slowing down, with exciting plans for future releases.

John Wick 5 Resumes Development: Following the conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA strike in November, Lionsgate Co-COO Joe Drake announced during a quarterly earnings call that work on “John Wick 5” has resumed. Originally intended to be shot consecutively with “John Wick 4,” plans changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the writers’ strike.

Spin-Offs in Development: Lionsgate revealed that multiple spin-offs are currently in the works, expanding the rich universe of John Wick. This decision underscores the enduring success and popularity of the franchise.

Ballerina Spin-Off: Set to hit screens next summer, the spin-off titled “Ballerina” stars Ana de Armas and is expected to feature the return of Keanu Reeves as John Wick alongside other familiar characters.

The Continental TV Series: “The Continental: From the World of John Wick” serves as a prequel, delving into the backstory of a young Winston Scott in the 1970s. While receiving mixed reviews upon its October release, the series contributes to the franchise’s expansion.

John Wick 5’s Narrative Approach: Producer Basil Iwanyk revealed that “John Wick 5” won’t necessarily pick up immediately after the events of its predecessor. With the conclusion of “John Wick 4” offering a satisfying ending, any future installments promise a fresh narrative.

Untitled Television Series: Director Chad Stahelski confirmed the development of an untitled television series, presenting a new set of challenges and storytelling opportunities without featuring John Wick.

John Wick Anime Series: Stahelski also announced a John Wick anime series, exploring different stories in anime format and capitalizing on its unique storytelling potential.

With its gripping action, memorable characters, and expanding universe, the John Wick franchise continues to enthrall audiences worldwide. With numerous projects in development, fans can look forward to more thrilling adventures in the world of John Wick.
