John Wick 5: All we know so far

John Wick has returned, somehow! Here, we explore the potential release date for John Wick 5, potential plot developments, and potential cast members.

The action series that never stops providing is John Wick. When the main character feels like he’s finished, he’s more than willing to give another bad person a kick in the ass.

We were originally introduced to the interesting, custom-governed world of The Continental and the High Table through the grief-fueled rampage of the first film.

Aside from sparking the Keanussaince, Wick’s sad tale gave rise to some of the greatest action films of the twenty-first century. After the unexpectedly depressing conclusion of John Wick 4, let’s examine how future films will function (warning of spoilers ahead).

Is there a John Wick 5 release date?

John Wick 5 is in development, according to Lionsgate. There’s no release date yet, but it will likely take a few years.

John Wick producer Basil Iwanyk provided a promising update in November 2023, teasing to Screen Rant, “If there is another John Wick movie, which I do believe there will be, we don’t know what it is yet, but I do believe.”

Joe Drake, the chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, stated on an earnings call on November 11, 2023, “On the Wick side we got multiple spin-offs and a Wick Five.” We began working on it as soon as the writer’s strike began, and we resumed as soon as it was over.

No announcements regarding the signing of writers or directors have been made. The four films’ director, Chad Stahelski, has stated he’s willing to explore new concepts.

The next significant project for this world is Ballet, whose release date has been postponed in order to reshoot it.

Who’ll be in the John Wick 5 cast?

John Wick 5 would likely have to be a prequel for Keanu Reeves to return. Or, it could focus on totally new characters with a fresh cast.

The possibility that John Wick 5 is being developed may delight fans, but it may also cause some uncertainty. After all, it appeared as though he had finally met his demise at the conclusion of John Wick 4.

John’s tomb was visible to us. It’s likely that John Wick 5 will examine the possibility of Baba Yaga staging his demise, which wouldn’t be that out of the ordinary for the series. It’s unfortunate that this might lessen the impact of episode 4’s conclusion.

Reeves told EW “I don’t know, I guess I’m going to have to lean on never say never. I mean, I wouldn’t do a John Wick film without Chad Stahelski. We’d have to see what that looked like. For me, it feels really right that John Wick finds peace.”

As director Stahelski teased to Empire Magazine, “dead” might not be an option for John: “You know, we’ve seen John take worse injuries.”

There’s always the chance we might see characters (and actors) spill over from The Continental cast, too, but one man who will not be returning is Lance Reddick, who died after filming the TV show.

More sensibly, John Wick 5 could be a prequel set before the events of the fourth chapter, or feature new or legacy characters.

What will the John Wick 5 plot be about?

John Wick 5 would have to explain how John is still alive after seemingly dying in 4. It could alternatively be a prequel set before the events of the fourth chapter, or feature new or legacy characters.

It seems as though the character has finally met his end in John Wick 4. That doesn’t mean he can’t return and find more victims to trample and horses to ride through towns and highways.

According to Stahelski, ideas for Wick still cross his mind, but they have to make sense.

Regarding a follow-up film, producer Basil Iwanyk stated, “I do feel like it will be a completely different book.” The next John Wick will be a novel if these four films were chapters. John Wick 4 won’t come out six months later.
