We’re sure that people weren’t really expecting much when the first “John Wick” movie hit the theaters, but it proved to be a smashing success and led to a sequel. For those who felt that this isn’t enough and want more, you’ll be pleased to learn that Keanu Reeves will be returning to his role as the assassin John Wick for the third installment in the franchise.

Confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that fans of the franchise will have to wait until May 17, 2019 which is when John Wick 3 will be released. Plot details and who else is expected to star in the third movie, save for Reeves, is unclear, but we expect additional details will be revealed as we get closer to the movie’s release.

It is also unclear who will be directing the third movie, but screenwriter Derek Kolstad who wrote the first two films will be returning to write the third, so in terms of a plot and storyline, you can expect roughly the same tone. So far the franchise has proven to be a success, with the first movie grossing $88 million, while the sequel managed to gross $171 million globally, so it will be interesting to see how much the third movie will be able to generate in terms of revenue.

In the meantime it looks like there will also be a TV series based on the world of John Wick. It is expected to act as a prequel of sorts and will provide viewers with a bit more back information on how the world of John Wick “works”.
