and Hobbs’ spinoff. It is set to be directed by Louis Leterrier and written by Christina Hodson and Oren Uziel. The release date is tentative but currently scheduled for April 4, 2025.

Fast & Furious has continued to grow from strength to strength and the universe is actively growing larger, as seen by the number of upcoming sequels and spin-offs currently in development. Debuting with The Fast and the Furious in 2001, this appeared to be a standard street racing series of films, however, thanks to the vision of star Vin Diesel and creatives at Universal Studios, it’s become a huge franchise. The 11 Fast & Furious movies, including the 10 main movies and the 2019 spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, have impressively already grossed more than $7 billion globally. Consequently, it’s no wonder that the franchise continues to expand with follow-ups and off-shoots.
With the action growing more ridiculous and exhilarating than ever, the Fast & Furious franchise refuses to quit. While Fast X was initially marketed as the first entry in a two-part finale to the main series, it was subsequently rumored that Fast X’s ending could be followed by two direct sequels to conclude Dom’s main story. In addition to that, Vin Diesel has announced work on a number of other sequels and spinoffs, elaborating that there would be some major announcements following the final mainline films. However, some details have now been released about what could be coming in the five proposed spin-offs and sequels, as well as where these movies are in various stages of development.

5 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs

Shortly after the release of Fast X, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that a Fast & Furious Hobbs spinoff would be happening. The rumored title for the movie is Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Reyes, with the movie confirmed to star Johnson as Hobbs with Jason Momoa reprising his role as Fast X villain Dante Reyes. However, it’s unclear if this movie will be replacing the previously proposed Hobbs & Shaw 2 movie, or is entirely separate.

Hobbs’ solo spinoff is set to serve as a sequel to both Fast X and Hobbs & Shaw, bridging the gap into the upcoming as-yet-untitled Fast & Furious 11. Though the film is still on hold because of the ongoing strikes, Chris Morgan is still confirmed to write alongside a significant list of producers including Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel. While the release date is still tentative, it is expected to be released before 2025 when the next entry is currently slated and certainly has a huge level of star power behind it to ensure this project gets made.

Louis Leterrier, director of Fast X, as well as several other popular action and heist movies such as Transporter and Now You See Me, was announced to direct the eleventh entry in the main series in April 2023. Shortly after, it was also announced that Christina Hodson, screenwriter for 2023’s The Flash, and Oren Uziel would be the screenwriters for the project. Diesel also announced that Fast & Furious 11’s release date would be in 2025. The official release date remains April 4, 2025, however, it is possible that this could change due to the halted production with ongoing strikes.
Fast & Furious 11 is due to continue the story of Fast X and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Reyes, so exactly what will happen remains to be seen. The mid-credits scene of Fast X does show Reyes making contact with Shaw and declaring him his next target, so it’s safe to assume that Hobbs and Reyes will follow the story of Agent Hobbs forced into a game of cat and mouse where he is the prey. The final scenes of Fast X also left it unclear whether Dominic Toretto and his son survived the trap laid out for them by Reyes as they drove off the edge of a dam.

3 Fast & Furious 12


Fast & Furious 12 is the most tentative entry on this list as it has only been teased by the star of the franchise, Vin Diesel. However, Universal has yet to confirm if Fast & Furious 12 is happening or whether the Fast 11 will conclude the main series instead. In April 2023, Diesel made comments about the studio having watched Fast X and then asked if the finale could be made into three parts (via Variety).
Although this hasn’t been confirmed by the studio itself and no other names have been announced attached to the project, it is a possibility that the story will be played out over a trilogy. However, it would be challenging for Vin Diesel to end with Fast & Furious 12 in a satisfying way, just in terms of the sheer time it would take to finally tell the whole story. The gap between Fast X and 11 is already two years without any delays; assuming the final entry is released a year or two later, the story may become too drawn out.
The story as it stood at the end of Fast X already felt like a larger film cut in half thanks to the abrupt ending, so delaying the final conclusion until an even later sequel could aggravate fans and appear as more of a cash grab from the studio. Furthermore, there is such a large range of interesting characters and stories that could be told through a number of different spin-offs. Whether the franchise decides to follow stories from individual characters, agencies in the films, or something else entirely, there is plenty of room for them to explore the wider world without delaying the ending of the main series.

2 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 2

Following the release of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw in 2019, Universal approved a sequel to be made starring Dwayne Johnson and began development with writer Chris Morgan agreeing to return for the project. However, the scale and ambition of the project as well as Johnson’s vision to create something that would be the “antithesis of Fast & Furious,” the film got pushed back. Due to the global pandemic and strikes, the Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 2 movie has received little to no updates since that time.
The confirmation of a Hobbs solo spinoff could also indicate that the direct sequel is no longer going ahead, but Shaw could also make an appearance in an upcoming project and lead into a spin-off sequel for the Johnson and Statham. Otherwise, Johnson may end up starring in a solo spin-off series that focuses on the adventures and cases of Deckard Hobbs and could see cameos from others in the franchise. No official comments to declare the Hobbs & Shaw sequel could also mean that this project will eventually go ahead, but is currently pushed to the back of the line with other projects being prioritized.

1 Fast & Furious All-Female Spinoff


One such example of a spinoff that has already been announced and confirmed to be in development is a female-led Fast & Furious spinoff. In 2019, it was confirmed that Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet would be screenwriters for the project. Perlman was one of the writers on Guardians of the Galaxy and also worked with Robertson-Dworet on Captain Marvel, while Beer wrote and directed the 2023 Pet Sematary: Bloodlines movie.
Looking at their work, it’s hard to say exactly what could be involved in this spinoff aside from strong female leads, but the Fast & Furious franchise has a wealth of incredible female characters that could make this into something special. Doubtless, with the huge love and support for this franchise, additional spinoffs are being considered as Diesel alluded to in 2015 (via Variety). Still, it may be some time before more announcements of franchise off-shoots are made.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.
