Franchise filmmaker Chad Stahelski has confirmed that John Wick is getting an anime spinoff series.
Speaking on the Discourse podcast, Stahelski revealed that the series is being developed in collaboration with a Japanese studio. He was tight-lipped about the plot and characters, but said that the anime will explore the underworld of assassins.
“I’m really excited about it because we’re doing that and a Japanese anime because I love Japanese anime so much,” he said. “I’m a big fan of it and I think it’s a great way to tell the story of John Wick in a different medium.”
The John Wick anime is a dream come true for action enthusiasts, combining the legendary hitman’s thrilling adventures with the unparalleled creativity and high-octane action sequences that anime studios are known for.
How John Wick Is Perfect for an Anime Adaptation
The John Wick franchise is a perfect fit for an anime adaptation for a number of reasons. First, the films are already heavily influenced by Japanese action cinema, with their stylish visuals and hyper-violent action sequences.
Second, the world of John Wick is a rich and complex one, with a deep mythology and a cast of interesting characters. This would give the anime creators plenty of material to work with.
Third, there is a large and passionate fan base for both John Wick and anime. This would ensure that the anime would have a built-in audience.
The Global Reach of Anime
Anime has become a global phenomenon in recent years, with a growing fanbase in the United States and Europe. This means that the John Wick anime has the potential to reach a wide audience.
The anime industry is also very large and well-respected, with a number of studios that are capable of producing high-quality animation. This means that the John Wick anime is in good hands.
Here are some of the things that fans can expect from the John Wick anime:
- High-octane action sequences
- Stylish visuals
- A deeper exploration of the world of John Wick
- A new perspective on the John Wick story
I’m excited to see how the John Wick anime turns out. I think it has the potential to be a great addition to the franchise.
Here are some of the questions that I have about the anime:
- Which Japanese studio will be working on the anime?
- When can we expect the anime to be released?

I hope that we get some answers to these questions soon. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to seeing the John Wick anime come to life.
