Will John Wick 4 be available for streaming anytime soon?

John Wick Chapter 4 2

The world has been grappled into its jaws by the swirling beauty of Keanu Reeves’ starling personality – that of a seasoned veteran in a lethal combo of assassination and ‘gun’-fu. (Which is a new addition to pop culture. It refers to mixing gun fights with kung-fu martial art). Now with how John Wick 4 has been undeniably revered to be a high-quality ending to Jonathan Wick’s story, when can you watch it on streaming platforms?

  • Well for starters, Lionsgate is the production company behind John Wick: Chapter 4, and the movie will first be available for streaming on Starz, which requires a subscription of $9 per month for all viewers.
  • Following its exclusive streaming on Starz, the movie will eventually become available on NBCUniversal’s Peacock service. After which Amazon Prime and Netflix could follow suit, potentially. This is the short picture, here’s the full one –

About John Wick’s inherently amazing legacy

The latest installment of the John Wick series, Chapter 4, is currently playing in movie theaters worldwide. However, it’s uncertain when it will be available for streaming, leaving fans who want to watch it from home in limbo. Oh, we would also like to tell on you how John Wick 5 may already be reportedly in the works. But that’s a thing to discuss for another day.

  • Keanu Reeves reprises his role in the franchise, which has been a major success since its inception in 2014. Each installment has outperformed its predecessor, and Chapter 4 aimed to raise the bar even higher, featuring a star-studded cast and even more intricately choreographed action scenes.

Here’s the thing regarding John Wick 4’s distribution rights

In contrast to popular franchises like Marvel, DC, and Star Wars, the John Wick series is not distributed by a studio that has its own streaming platform.

Major studios such as Disney, Warner Bros., Paramount, and Universal have made efforts to shorten the time between a movie’s theatrical release and its availability on their respective direct-to-consumer streaming services.

Seeing John Wick 4 stream any time soon?

However, Lionsgate is in a different position since it has partnerships with both Starz and Peacock. For instance, their 2022 release The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent was not available on Starz until six months after its release.

  • Therefore, it’s unlikely that John Wick: Chapter 4 will be available for streaming on Starz before September of this year. Lionsgate will likely take advantage of the movie’s success in theaters and at-home purchases to maximize their profits.

As the weekend approaches, it’s a great time to consider a John Wick marathon before the release of the fourth installment on OTT platforms. While it will eventually become available for streaming, it’s likely to be in high demand and watched by many.

If you’re a Netflix user in the US, both John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3—Parabellum is currently available for streaming as part of your subscription. This means that the entire trilogy is accessible to you with a Netflix account.

Alternatively, you can rent or purchase the movies on other platforms such as Apple TV or Amazon Prime Video by signing up for those services.

The previous three films have garnered a significant following over the years, and new fans have been able to catch up through various at-home options before heading to the theaters for the latest chapter. Let us know how you felt about John Wick 4’s critical reception – did it meet your standards? Did Baba Yega’s story finish, per you? Or is there more to go that it deserves to be explored in John Wick 5?
