Vin Diesel Says ‘Fast & Furious’ Will End With Two-Part 10th Movie
Last year, it was announced that Fast & Furious franchise will come to end with a two-movie finale.
Now, Vin Diesel has revealed that the plans for the franchise’s end were already being discussed almost a decade ago. He said: “That’s always what was discussed. Even as far back as 2012, 2013, it was something that Pablo [Walker] and I would discuss, finishing on the 10th one.”
He continued saying: “That just always felt right. And being a part of the Marvel franchise, seeing that possibility that when you have that much story you can end with two films. It was something that we’d talked about that became real. It’s just been such a wonderful, wonderful run, and we’d always envisioned that 10 would be the farewell, the finale, and that is what our story is working towards.”

In October 2020, Comicbook reported that the franchise will see its end after episodes 10 and 11, which will come together to form a two-part finale following the release of the ninth installment due in 2021. Director Justin Lin will be tapped for the project by Universal Pictures, who has worked on multiple of the franchise’s past titles, including the upcoming F9: The Fast Saga.
It appears that the franchise still has two spin-offs in development so the franchise won’t be stopping fully. The sequel to last year’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is still currently under development, as well as another female-fronted spin-off being written by Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel‘s Nicole Perlman, alongside Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
As of now, F9: The Fast Saga will hit cinemas on April 2, 2021.
