Fast and Furious franchise to conclude after two more movies, reveals Vin Diesel ahead of F9 release

Vin Diesel made a mark as the street racer patriarch in the Fast and Furious franchise, but the storyline starring his longstanding character will soon come to an end.

Diesel said in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press that the Fast and Furious saga will conclude after two more films following the upcoming ninth instalment, F9, which releases in theatres on 25 June. He said Universal Pictures wants to close out the saga in two parts.

The actor said the final two films could potentially release in 2023, then 2024.

“Every story deserves its own ending,” said Diesel during a press junket for F9 when asked about the franchise’s future. Despite the end of the saga, he said the Fast and Furious cinematic universe will continue on.

When Diesel told his daughter about the franchise’s conclusion, the actor said she began shedding tears.

“I know people are going to feel like it doesn’t have to end, but I think all good things should,” he said. “There are reasons for a finale. I think this franchise has deserved it.”

Diesel said the franchise has come a long way, but he finally sees a finish line.

“This franchise was born from the pavement, from the concrete,” he said. “The world just championed this underdog to a place where it has already surpassed all of these other franchises. But the franchise has a soul, and that soul has to rest.”
