‘The Continental’ Teaser Trailer: Mel Gibson Stars in John Wick TV Series

The Continental

Recently, Peacock released a teaser trailer for their highly anticipated limited series, “The Continental”, which is set to take place 40 years before the events of the John Wick film franchise. The show will revolve around the happenings in a hotel meant for assassins located in the heart of New York City.

One of the top-billed actors in the project is the legendary Mel Gibson, who will be portraying a character named Cormac. However, despite his prominent role, Gibson was not present in the recently released footage, leaving fans eagerly anticipating more details about his character and his involvement in the series.

With its high-stakes action, suspenseful plotline, and star-studded cast, “The Continental” is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated television events of the year. As fans eagerly await its release, the teaser trailer has only added to the excitement and anticipation surrounding this much-anticipated limited series.

The Continental: From the World of John Wick is a new TV series starring Colin Woodell as Winston Scott, the young version of the Continental Hotel owner played by Ian McShane in the John Wick films. The three-part event will explore the origin of the hotel-for-assassins through the eyes of Winston Scott, as he navigates the dangerous underworld of 1970s New York City to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his future throne. The series also stars Mishel Prada, Ben Robson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Nhung Kate, Jessica Allain, Ayomide Adegun, Jeremy Bobb, and Peter Greene.

The Continental marks Mel Gibson’s return to TV series work since his recurring role in the short-lived 2004 ABC comedy Complete Savages. However, his casting in the show caused a backlash on social media due to his history of making antisemitic comments. This led to his omission from the trailer, which may seem conspicuous given his notoriety in the ensemble cast.

The Lionsgate project was first put into development in 2018 and is written and executive produced by Greg Coolidge, Kirk Ward, and Shawn Simmons (Wayne), with Albert Hughes (Menace II Society) serving as executive producer and directing episodes one and three, and Charlotte Brandstrom (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) helming episode two. Peacock has announced that the limited series will premiere in September 2023.
