Weird news for those looking for how to to watch Fast and Furious movies in order. Four of the movies — which you can still stream from your couch — just ended up on two of the last places we would have looked, Sling TV and Hulu with Live TV, two of the best cable TV alternatives. This is apparently because those services have on-demand content from TNT and TBS. 

And we've got good news! F9: The Fast Saga is finally streaming online! And Fast Five is now on HBO Max! The bad news, however is that Fast X aka Fast and Furious 10 just lost director Justin Lin. 

The other recent win came for Fast Five arriving on Peacock — but it's since gone. . But for those that are trying to sketch out Dom's family tree before his little brother comes a'calling, we've got everything you need to catch up in time for the next chapter of the Fast franchise. Like Dom, the Fast and Furious movies can be somewhat hard to find. As friends have groused, "why aren't these all on one service?" 

Yes, Universal Pictures released the whole Fast franchise, but unlike how Disney operates the Marvel and Star Wars films (nearly all of the MCU is consolidated, making it easier to watch Marvel movies in order), Peacock had had some of these movies, with the rest are splintered across the internet. And we're waiting for Prime Video to make it easier to watch the James Bond movies in order.

Two, though, can be found on services such as HBO Max and we've got the full details below. Once you've got all the Fast and Furious movies ready to watch, you'll be able to drink in the epic timeline of these films. While they start as fun, brisk tales of illegal street racing, they've morphed into globe-trotting narratives that push our heroes to save the world (and each other).

So, we've got the complete guide to getting you all caught up so you can watch the movies before you watch (or re-watch) F9. Also, we've got an explainer for the Fast and Furious 9 credits scene for those who have seen the movie already, and a guide to what we know about Fast and Furious 10

Here's everything you need to find and watch the Fast and Furious movies in order:

Fast and Furious movies in order, where to watch

So, let's start out with the Fast and Furious movies in order of their theatrical release. This is a fairly easy order to suss out, as the numbers (or puns, such as The Fate of the Furious) in each title show their order. The only slightly confusing movies are those without numbers: Tokyo Drift comes after 2 Fast 2 Furious and it's followed by Fast & Furious (the fourth movie).

The most annoying part of finding the Fast and Furious movies is that only some of the ten films are on major streaming services. And they're constantly disappearing. HBO Max has the original The Fast and the Furious movie and 2 Fast 2 Furious, but the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off disappeared recently. 

One note for our audiences in the UK, some of the movies have different titles over there. Fast Five is "Fast & Furious 5," Furious 7 is "Fast & Furious 7" and The Fate of the Furious is "Fast & Furious 8."

Fast and Furious movies in order of events

If you want to see the movies in the order of their events, you have to move them around ever-so-slightly. 

And if you're watching for the history of the family, there's also some bonus content to watch: The Turbo-Charged Prelude and Los Bandoleros. Neither is available from traditional sources, but the former is on YouTube and the latter (directed by Vin Diesel) was posted on Vimeo by its editor.
