Every Fast & Furious Movie Coming After F9 | Screen Rant

Justin Lin’s F9 is finally making its way to the big screen, but the Fast & Furious franchise still has a future ahead with several upcoming releases. Two decades after The Fast Saga launched with 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, the series is still expanding. Aside from eight movies making up the primary saga, the series consists of a spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw, and an animated Netflix series, Spy Racers. The end might be near for Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and some of his crew, but there’s still plenty to look forward to.

Diehard Fast & Furious fans were forced to wait extra long for the ninth installment. Following The Fate of the Furious in 2017, F9 was originally scheduled to debut in 2019 before being pushed because of Hobbs & Shaw. Other delays, primarily stemming from COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns, altered the release another four times before Universal Studios settled on the June 2021 premiere. Though the public had to remain patient, the cast and crew provided insight into the future of the series, including a definite endpoint.

While many predicted The Fast Saga would end with a milestone tenth installment, Diesel confirmed the story would end with a two-part finale. The plan will thrust the franchise beyond the 20th anniversary mark by featuring most of the core cast. That said, the franchise is also looking to branch off in other areas with a handful of other projects in the works.

The untitled Fast & Furious 10 movie was originally planned to debut in April 2021 before various elements shifted F9’s release. Justin Lin will be back to direct with Chris Morgan tapped to write the script. Aside from Diesel reprising his role as Dom, viewers can expect other core members of the crew to return, such as Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), and Tej Parker (Ludacris). Based on the timetable of previous installments, 2023 is most likely the target release date.

Following production of Fast & Furious 10, Lin and returning cast members will move right into the eleventh and final entry in The Fast Saga, shooting the installments back-to-back. Diesel has shared (via The Associated Press) that the final movie could come in 2024, meaning the two parts will release during consecutive years in a similar fashion to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. So by 2024, The Fast Saga could very well be coming to a definite end. More details will surely be released as Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 nears the production stages.

Based on Hobbs & Shaw’s success, it was a no-brainer for Universal to greenlight a sequel. Though there’s still a chance Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham will reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in the primary saga, they will undoubtedly have another chance to shine in Hobbs & Shaw 2. The frenemies work well together, and they proved they are highly capable of taking down criminal organizations. There’s no word yet on a director or the story direction, but Chris Morgan is expected to develop the script featuring a handful of new characters to appear alongside Hobbs and Shaw.

Whereas Hobbs & Shaw’s sequel has been officially confirmed ahead of F9, the untitled female spinoff still falls under the rumor category. Though there hasn't been an official announcement just yet, the Fast & Furious cast wants a female spinoff. Diesel has also commented on the project, claiming a script was being written for a movie featuring the powerful women in the saga. While Letty and Jordana Brewster’s Mia are two vital characters, the movie could also incorporate Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), Hattie (Vanessa Kirby), Magdalene (Helen Mirren), Madame M (Eiza González), and Cipher (Charlize Theron). With an endgame on the horizon for the main story, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Universal fast track more spinoffs to keep the Fast & Furious franchise alive.
