If you thought the Amazon Prime Video catalog lost its luster after ‘Rings of Power’, think again now that the company has confirmed its exclusivity for ‘The Continental’, the predecessor to the ‘John Wick’ saga.
The John Wick saga was a huge commercial success thanks to its violent action scenes in which Keanu Reeves became the king of gun-fu. This gave way to a number of projects revolving around Babayaga, including The Continental, a prequel that will tell the story of the iconic hotel where the most dangerous killers in the world stay while Winston (Ian McShane), manages the site.
After the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, platform AAmazon Prime Video has taken a mysterious step in the streaming battle, even offering a promotion of 49 Mexican pesos per month (here we will tell you how to get it). However, things could change now that the platform behind A League of Their Own, My Policeman and The Fall, has just confirmed that they will exclusively have this new series.

Throughout the series, the audience will follow Winston through the underworld 70s in New Yorkwhere he will face demons from his past as he tries to take control of the legendary hotel for the world’s most dangerous criminals.”
