We've got good news about Fast and Furious 10, and some bad news as well. I'll get the former done first: yes, the tenth mainline Fast and Furious movie is coming, and it isn't alone. F9: Fast & Furious 9 aka The Fast Saga is going to be followed by both Fast 10 and Fast 11 (though it may just be referred to as a two-part movie).
The bad news, though, concerns one cast member you may be wishing was coming back for these films. More on him below. That said, of course, expect spoilers for Fast & Furious 9 below. this is your warning.
Also, we've just gotten a bit of casting news to add to the likely list of series regulars we expect to see back in the driver's seat(s). It's amazing to think, though, about how a rag-tag group of motor-heads went from betting on cars to saving the world. Here's everything we know right now about Fast and Furious 10.

Fast and Furious 10 release date speculation and production info
We're gonna probably wait a little longer for Fast and Furious 10 than was originally anticipated. This is because, you guessed it, the Covid-19 pandemic pushed everything back. Originally Fast and Furious 10 (or whatever they wind up calling it) was due in April 2021. But seeing as how Fast 9 is only coming out in June 2021, we know that isn't happening.
As for when they start shooting? Well, director Justin Lin told Variety that it's "probably not this year." In fact, he wasn't "quite sure when" they will get started. Why wait? Well, he continued, "You can never have enough time in development with these films. Even though I think there’s some ideas, I don’t think we’re going to be shooting this year."
That said, Vin Diesel knows. He told Regal that they start filming the new Fast movies in January. We say "movies" because it seems like Fast 10 and Fast 11 may be just Fast 10 parts 1 and 2, as that's how Diesel referred to them.
So maybe production begins in 2022 at the earliest... then let's look back in time to see how long it could take. Fast 9 began shooting in February 2019 and wrapped on November 10th, 2019, with the original release date of April 10, 2020 in their sights. That means Fast and Furious 10 could take around 14 months from production to release date. And since they like the early springtime so much (The Fate of the Furious came out on April 14, 2017, Furious 7 bowed on April 3, 2015), we're thinking April 2023 makes some sense.
Except, you know, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw came out on August 2, 2019, so they're clearly not impartial to the late summer. This means a spring/summer 2023 window is an even surer bet.
Fast and Furious 10 cast
Since we just saw F9 on opening night, we've got a firm grasp on who to expect back for Fast and Furious 10. And since none of our main crew saw the end of their careers in F9, we believe Fast and Furious 10 could have the biggest cast yet. Here's who's left over from Fast & Furious 9's main cast:
- Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto
- Michelle Rodriguez as Letty
- Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto
- Chris Bridges as Tej
- Tyrese Gibson as Roman
- Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey
- Sung Kang as Han
- Charlize Theron as Cypher
- Helen Mirren as Queenie
- John Cena as Jakob Toretto
Also, expect more Cardi B, who plays new character Leysa — a woman with ties to Dom's past. At the film's premiere, he told ET that Leysa will return in Fast 10, saying "We are very much excited to evolve her character and to expand it to the finale ... She made it just in time."
Remember when I said I had some bad news? Dwayne Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter that he won't be back for the mainline Fast movies. After mentioning that he laughed when hearing Vin Diesel's comments about their version of method acting, Johnson noted "And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me.”
Will Jason Statham come back as Deckard Shaw, as the Fast and Furious 9 credits scene suggested he and Han will settle unfinished business? That's just as likely for Hobbs and Shaw 2, as we'll explain below.
When Digital Spy asked about who else Diesel wants in the Fast Universe, he noted "Personally, I would just love to have my mate Michael Caine be a part. He's a part of Witch Hunter, grateful to have worked with him on The Last Witch Hunter. I think you have to wait until Fast 10 to see who's coming."
Fast and Furious 10 isn't the only sequel coming
Yes, Fast family, F10 isn't the final race. Fast and Furious 11 is already locked in, per a Vin Diesel interview with the Associated Press. Fast and Furious 10 and 11 are essentially going to be a two-part movie, think Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame — just with a lot more cars.
That said, we also know there will be more than just that 11-part Fast Saga. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw producer Hiram Garcia told ComicBook.com that plans are in motion for a Hobbs & Shaw 2, which we are fully on board for.
In a Sirius XM interview, the whole cast agrees that there should be an all-female Fast Cinematic Universe spin-off. Chris Bridges was the first to suggest the idea in the call, and he declared that Helen Mirren better be in it. Jordana Brewster suggested that Eva Mendes could also come back.
