  • Keanu Reeves is set to return as John Wick.

Keanu Reeves will bless audiences with yet another entry in the John Wick franchise on May 21, 2021.

The studio behind John Wick sent out text messages to fans on Monday confirming the news.

"You have served," the message reads. "You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming - May 21, 2021."

Since arriving in theaters in 2014, John Wick has become a bonafide phenomenon, putting actor Keanu Reeves back into the spotlight in the process.

The franchise is so popular that the third film, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, knocked Avengers: Endgame from the top of the box office. Granted, Avengers: Endgame has already been in theaters for almost a month, but it's still a major achievement.

Learning there will be another John Wick entry isn't a big surprise. Audiences and critics have fallen in love with the franchise's hitman underworld, stylish action, and mysterious lore.

The third film expanded on the universe and left audiences wanting more, and the filmmakers are wasting no time in obliging.
