The Continental Season 1 Episode 2 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Continental Season 1 Episode 2

The Continental marks one of the first expansions of the John Wick cinematic universe by Paramount Pictures. The three-episode-long miniseries will serve as an introduction to the origins of Winston’s character as the owner of the Continental in New York City.

The show is set in the 70s and shows a young Winston making his mark as a member of the High Table. Colin Woodell will be portraying the protagonist. Mel Gibson also stars as Cormac, another new character. 

The Continental will be set in the same cinematic universe as the John Wick films but will not feature too many familiar characters. The miniseries will have its own twist on historic world events from the 70s, including the rise of the Mafia as an economic force in the US. 

Here is everything you need to know about The Continental Season 1 Episode 2, including the release date, time and where you can watch this show!

Where Can I Watch The Continental Season 1?

Season 1 of The Continental: From the World of John Wick will be available to watch on Peacock for our viewers in the US. The streaming service will be the only exclusive source to watch new episodes of the show.

For our international viewers outside the US, The Continental will stream episodes on Prime Video. The episodes will be released on the same day on both platforms.

The series was set to release on Starz earlier but the rights were sold to Peacock in March of this year. 

The Continental Season 1 Episode 2 Release Date

Episode 2 of The Continental will be released on Friday 29th September at 12 am (PT) / 3 am (ET).

The second episode is titled “Loyalty to the Master.” The second episode will pick up in the aftermath of Frankie sacrificing himself to save his brother Winston and wife Yen from the Twins. There are many subplots that will run parallel to this main storyline, although we fully expect them to come full circle by the time the miniseries ends. 

Episode 2 of The Continental will be available to watch with subtitles. We expected the runtime for each episode to be approximately an hour long but episode 1 surprised us with a good chunk of minutes being added. It might be the case that episode 2 also runs for about an hour and a half. 

How Many Episodes Will The Continental Season 1 have?

The Continental Season 1 has been commissioned for a total of 3 episodes. As mentioned above, this miniseries is the first attempt by Paramount to expand upon the franchise’s universe. We will be left with the finale after episode 2 airs. 

There are a lot of new movies and television shows from the world of John Wick lined up for the next two years. You can read more about them here

What happened in Episode 1?

Episode 1 of The Continental introduces us to many new and old characters in the JW cinematic universe. The episode starts off in 1955 with the story of the Scott brothers, Frankie and Winston. They are apprehended by the police for a crime and each goes on their separate path in life after that. Frankie works for Cormac O’Connor, who owns The Continental in NYC in the ’70s.

Frankie abhors him and steals an ancient coin press from his vault on New Year’s Eve. This sparks an immediate response from Cormac and The High Table, who believe the artefact is critical to the organization’s sustenance.

Winston works as a businessman in London. However, he is brought back into Frankie’s mess by Cormac’s men. Two other important subplots also take shape in episode 1.

The first involves NYPD Detective KD, who wants to investigate The Continental but her superior, Det. Mayhew, discourages her. The second subplot involves brother-sister Lou and Miles, who run their father’s karate dojo in Chinatown. Miles also deals in illegal firearms but Lou wants him to abandon that business. 

Frankie is on the run with his wife. Yen and Winston follow his trail to track him down. Cormac enlists the help of assassins Hansel and Gretel to bring back the press to him.

The episode ends with Frankie sacrificing himself to allow Winston and Yen to escape, who go to Miles and Lou for help.
