As The Continental hits the small screen, here’s your guide to all the actors and characters you’ll need to know.

The Continental — the spin-off mini series set in the John Wick franchise — has just premiered its first action-packed episode.

The show retraces the origin of The Continental Hotel, a safe ground for murderers and assassins which only has one rule: no business shall be conducted on its grounds.

But, before you dive back into the John Wick-inspired world, check out this list of all the actors and characters in The Continental.


The Continental cast and characters

The official synopsis for the series reads: “In an alternate history 1970s, the series follows Winston Scott as he came to his position as proprietor of the New York branch of ‘The Continental’ chain of hotels, safe havens for legal assassins on the grounds of which no business may ever take place.

“It explores variations on real-world events, including the Winter of Discontent and the American Mafia’s rise to economic power.”
