Also in the works is a show based on the hotel from the film, The Continental. The show is slated to air after the release of the fourth film. “I had a meeting on a season pitch for this yesterday. We like the group of writers, and we’re trying to get it in the right place so it doesn’t interfere with the motion picture. It will air sometime after the fourth movie,” said Starz President and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch previously told TCA.
Hirsch revealed that the series would explore the origin story of the hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins in the movies.
