One key element will determine whether Keanu Reeves returns to the popular series

Chad Stahelski, the director of the John Wick movies, provided some intriguing insights about the franchise’s future in a recent interview with Inverse. Stahelski referred to John Wick: Chapter 4 as the character’s “swan song” while talking about the series’ growth and the debut of the spin-off series The Continental. Although it appeared to be the end of John Wick’s story, the filmmaker made a suggestion that there might be more to say if the proper story comes to light.

In his notebooks, Stahelski disclosed that he has a wealth of ideas for future sequels, including John Wick 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. But he highlighted that a fascinating plot, not just a money grab, would be the most important element in any continuation. He said, “I have no interest in doing the cash grab of bringing John Wick back for something.”

He and Keanu Reeves, who plays John Wick, genuinely care about the character, and they would be willing to return to the franchise if a compelling storyline were to be developed. Stahelski left the option open, stating that while they don’t want to bring back John Wick just for the purpose of doing so, they are still open to exploring new experiences as long as they can uphold the high standards set by the prior movies.

What can we expect from John Wick 5 if the movie is made?

In a duel with Caine at the conclusion of John Wick: Chapter 4, it appears that our favorite assassin could have met his match. We never actually see him die or recover his body, despite the movie’s hints that he might be dead. Fans wonder if the last shot, which depicts Winston and The Bowery King by Wick’s tomb, is significant and marks the end of the John Wick legend rather than Wick himself. We’re excitedly anticipating what will happen next as this mystery keeps us on the edge of our seats.

The High Table, the terrible group John Wick is battling, is still standing even though he was able to kill the Marquis, the snake’s head. There are still many members who have not been located. Wick seems to be out to destroy them all, but he hasn’t yet succeeded. In John Wick 5, he might pursue revenge against this powerful and old organization, possibly creating a more equal and just system in the process, or he might come out of retirement to help a close friend. There is still room for exciting action and suspense in the plot.
