It's finally time to ditch those Sad Keanu memes.

Despite coming off some recent box office bombs, Keanu Reeves has nothing to frown about as he's set to star in the new TV show "Rain." The hourlong series is the first TV show from Slingshot Global Media and is based on the books by Barry Eisler, according to Deadline.

In the series, Reeves plays a half-Japanese, half-American assassin who is skilled at making his targets look like they died naturally but just has a rough time with personal relationships.

Though he has appeared in other television shows, this is reportedly Reeves' first starring role on the small screen. The actor will also executive produce with Eisler and the directors of his upcoming film, "John Wick."

In addition, NBC is developing a pilot based on Reeves' 1997 film "The Devil's Advocate," so it looks like we're in for a lot more excellent adventures with Keanu.
