That’s right, John Wick 5 is coming.
If you thought the John Wick franchise would be shutting its hyper-violent doors, you were dead wrong. After round out a solid trilogy of movies, it was clear that Lionsgate was not ready to wave goodbye to everyone’s favorite assassin just yet. We’ve known for a while that John Wick 4 was underway, but they mostly kept the franchise going one movie at a time.
But John Wick has always had serious potential to explode. The filmmakers understood that, and expanded the idea to a TV series called The Continental, which is still being worked on. But don’t think they’re going to be waving goodbye to the film franchise any time soon. Quite the contrary. According to Lionsgate, we’ll be seeing at least two more John Wick movies in the future.

The reveal came during an earnings call for the studio, where CEO John Feltheimer revealed the future of the franchise.
“We’re also busy preparing scripts for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022,” Feltheimer said. “We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year.”
You read that right. Not only are we getting a John Wick 5, but it’s shooting back-to-back with John Wick 4. At present, they plan for the fourth film to hit theaters on May 27, 2022. There is no word on when they hope to release John Wick 5, but assuming they can shoot back-to-back, a year later or so does seem plausible.
