"The Continental" is set in the 1970s, before the "John Wick" movies.
It explains how Ian McShane's Winston Scott became the manager of the New York hotel.
Colin Woodell plays the young Winston, but here's who else is in the cast.
Colin Woodell as Winston Scott
Leading the show is 31-year-old star Colin Woodell as a younger version of Winston Scott, who fans already know from the "John Wick" movies as the manager of The Continental hotel, where assassins can find safe haven without any repercussions.
Ian McShane played Winston on the big screen, but the series will explore how he came to be the manager of the building in the first place in the 1970s. When the show picks up, Winston is tasked with finding his brother, Frankie Scott, by the current manager of the hotel.
Woodell previously starred in "The Purge" TV series, "Designated Survivor," and Max's "The Flight Attendant."
Mel Gibson as Cormac
"Lethal Weapon" and "Mad Max" star Mel Gibson plays the Continental's current manager, Cormac, and he's also a huge figure in the criminal underworld of New York.
When Winston's brother steals something from him, he sends Winston to track him down, unknowingly setting off a chain of events that might lead to his own downfall.
Ayomide Adegun as Charon
Winston isn't the only returning character from the "John Wick" franchise, as British star Ayomide Adegun plays the younger iteration of the reception manager, Charon. Charon was played by the late Lance Reddick in the movies. Charon is Cormac's right-hand in the series, and works with Winston in the hunt for Frankie.
Katie McGrath as The Adjudicator
The "John Wick" movies establish that a mysterious organization called the High Table keeps the world's assassins and their various hideouts in check with agents called Adjudicators. Irish actor Katie McGrath plays an Adjudicator in the 1970s, and she sports an intriguing porcelain mask that her modern counterparts don't have.
Ben Robson as Frankie Scott
British star Ben Robson also appears in "The Continental" as Frankie Scott, Winston's older brother. Frankie is different from Winston, largely because he fought in Vietnam while his sibling worked as a businessman. Frankie sets the events of the series in motion when he steals something from Cormac, who orders Winston to track him down.
Nhung Kate as Yen
Vietnamese actor Nhung Kate plays Yen, a ruthless fighter and also Frankie's wife. She goes underground with him after Cormac discovers that he's been betrayed.
Mishel Prada as KD
"Riverdale" fans will recognize Mishel Prada, who played Hermosa Lodge on The CW series, as Detective KD. She's keen to root out corruption within the city, and her investigation brings her to the Continental.
Jeremy Bobb as Mayhew
Another detective in the series is Mayhew, played by Jeremy Bobb. Audiences might've seen him in shows like "Jessica Jones," "Manhunt: Unabomber," and "The Knick." Mayhew has the most to lose in the series, as he has a family at home. He's quite close with KD as her superior officer.
Jessica Allain as Lou
Jessica Allain plays Lou, a woman who runs her father's old dojo with her brother, Miles, though the pair have to resort to selling guns to help pay for the building. The British actor also appeared in Netflix's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," as well as "The Laundromat."
Hubert Point-Du Jour as Miles
Miles is in charge of a gun-running operation that he uses to help pay for the upkeep of the dojo. He's also a Vietnam War veteran, which is how he knows Winston's brother, Frankie. Point-Du Jour previously starred in "Doctor Death" opposite Joshua Jackson.
