We all know and love the John Wick movies. They are action cinema at its finest, particularly John Wick: Chapter 4. However, we don’t know a whole lot about that world before John Wick came around. Now, we’ll get some of that history with the Peacock series The Continental. Check out the trailer above.

For those that need a bit of a refresher, here’s the synopsis from Peacock.

The three-part event will explore the origin behind the iconic hotel-for-assassins centerpiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott, as he’s dragged into the Hell-scape of 1970’s New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind. Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his future throne.
