It hasn’t been too long since the ninth entry of the Fast and Furious franchise was released. F9 was the beginning of the end, as we’ve learned that they’re already working on the final entries of the mainline Fast Saga. With the pandemic delaying the launch of the previous entry, there was some uncertainty when we can expect the next film but the wait is over, as Entertainment Weekly unveiled that it will release April 7th, 2023.
It has been some time since they confirmed that Justin Lin will end the franchise with his two latest films. F9 was pretty much the set-up to the franchise’s two-film finale, which are believed to be filming back-to-back Vin Diesel discussed that the reason we’re getting two films was that they had so many stories set up that couldn’t get shown in just one. There hasn’t been a confirmation which actors will return, but as EW highlights, we can expect the usual suspects.
There has been a fallout with the franchise in recent memory due to Dwayne Johnson‘s beef with Diesel. There have been hints he’ll continue the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off series. So, while the Fast and Furious films come to an end, we might see various spin-offs come from the final two films. Even as one franchise ends, there’s a lot of potential for its future.
