Friends ask me how to watch Fast and Furious movies in order because it's summertime and we're all preparing to live life one quarter-mile at a time once more. That's right, F9: Fast & Furious 9 is speeding towards theaters with the velocity only a tank of nitrous can supply. 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, Peacock barely has any of these movies, and the rest are splintered across the internet. A few, though, can be found on services such as HBO Max and , and we've got the full details below. Most recently, The Fate of the Furious left Fubo for a cable company's video on demand library. 

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, while you get ready for F9 (coming later this year), we've got the complete guide to getting you all caught up. And F9's a lot like Fast Five. Remember Fast & Furious before Five added Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson? F9 may change the game again by the addition of one The Rock's biggest in-ring rivals: John Cena.

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 4 of the 9 films are on major streaming services. HBO Max has the original The Fast and the Furious movie, 2 Fast 2 Furious and the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off, which pairs rivals Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). Peacock Premium has Fast & Furious 6. The rest have to be acquired on their own — though folks with the Fubo TV service have access to The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious (aka the fourth one) and The Fate of the Furious.

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. 

Fast and Furious movies in order of review scores

The Fast and Furious movies are arguably review-proof, but there is a range of quality up and down the franchise. So, we've found each film's Rotten Tomatoes score, and put them in order how how the critics rate them.

As you'll see, the simpler and earlier films didn't do well with the intelligentsia, while the injection of Dwayne Johnson added some appeal to the films.

  • Fast Five (2011): 77%
