Yeah, we're thinking he's back! After almost two and a half years of eager anticipation, John Wick finally returned to theaters this weekend for John Wick: Chapter 2, and the sequel has completely recaptured the magic of the original. Chapter 2 is violent, it's stylish, and it's a ton of fun. Honestly, the future has never looked brighter for this dark and brooding silver screen anti-hero.

In fact, while John Wick: Chapter 2 has only been out in theaters for a few days, the folks behind the franchise have already started talking about a possible John Wick prequel TV series. Nothing has received any confirmation yet, but a serialized project centering on the earlier days of Mr. Wick's career sounds like one of the coolest developments that we have heard all year. On that note, we've compiled a list of specific reasons why the John Wick series could totally work as a TV show. We have plenty of arguments to get to, but let's kick this off with one of the most important reasons: the action.

John Wick's Heavy Violence Is Now Possible On TV

While there was certainly a time when hardcore, R-rated violence was hard to find on the small screen, that era has passed. John Wick is as violent as contemporary action franchises get, but it still arguably doesn't even come close to the carnage that we can now regularly see on television. Shows like Daredevil and Game of Thrones have fundamentally changed the game in regards to the type of hard-hitting content that we can now witness on cable or streaming TV, and they have in many ways paved the way for an R-rated series like John Wick to make a seamless transition. We probably wouldn't see John Wick on a traditional broadcast network, but HBO, AMC, or a streaming service like Netflix all seem like fair game. Let's keep the blood flowing and the body count high.
