John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum follows John after killing a member of the international assassins’ guild in a way that’s against the rules. He becomes the target of every assassin when a $14 million price tag is placed on his head. John is forced to pull every trick he can in order to stay alive. This further expands upon the universe.

John Wick 4 plot details remain secretive, but it’s clear that it will continue to develop some of the plot points introduced in its predecessor. John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 were supposed to be shot back-to-back, but that production plan has been scrapped. The television spinoff series The Continental is also supposed to strengthen the international assassins’ guild’s background.
