Chapter 4 will start where chapter 3 left off. John and Bowery king both injured make a deal to go up against the high table for their betrayal. The entire plot wasn’t revealed however they have told us some major parts.
1. John wick hunts down Winston for almost killing him. (It is not said whether John kills him, he most likely does.)
2. The Adjudicator is beheaded.- John and bowery both fight off her and a couple of Japanese assassins and John takes one of the swords. She (in a beaten state) reminds him of his wife and dog before he violently slashes her head clean off.
3. Sofia joins in.- Despite their split up in chapter 3, She later finds out that the excommunicado rule no longer stands and that he has been betrayed.
4. The 3 come face-to-face with the head of the high table.- From chapter 3, the mysterious man from the dessert who turned out to be the head of it all, returns for a confrontation and his men battle out Sofia, Bowery and John.

‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ Release date: when does it come out?
Lionsgate has confirmed the release date of “John Wick: Chapter 4” is being pushed a year from May 2021 to May 27, 2022.
It was previously assigned a release date of May 21, 2021, this would’ve put it in direct competition with fellow Keanu Reeves-fronted sequel The Matrix 4.
However, Reeves was set to film John Wick 4 after Matrix 4, and thanks to Coronavirus production shutdowns, that’s no longer possible in time for their formerly shared release date.
Finally, John Wick: Chapter 4 is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2022.
John Wick alum Ian McShane revealed in January 2021 that John Wick 4 will start filming sometime in 2021.
John Wick: Chapter 4 will kick off principal photography this June. Most of the shoot will take place in Berlin, Germany and Paris, France, as those cities will be integral locations in the chapter 4 studios.
‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ Trailer
The trailer is not out yet, John Wick: Chapter 4 is hitting the cinemas on 27th May 2022, so a trailer is expected to drop at the end of 2021.
Finally, the “John Wick” sequel is slated to release on May 27, 2022, its May 2021 release date is being filled by the “Saw” reboot “Spiral”.
The move makes logistical sense, considering that Reeves still has to finish production on “The Matrix 4”. The Warner Bros. tentpole was several weeks into filming when production was halted.
The next installment in the Keanu Reeves-starring action franchise was announced not long after “John Wick: Chapter 3” opened in May 2019 to over $50 million at the domestic box office.
Last year Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer said, “We’re also busy preparing script for the next two installments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day Weekend 2022. We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 & 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year.”
But, now ‘John Wick 4’ and ‘5’ are not filming back to back. Obviously, this was before COVID changed the world and while that might have been the original plan, I’m hearing they are only Shooting John Wick 4 this summer.
