Vin Diesel confirms end of the Fast and Furious franchise is in sight and there is a plan

June 12th, 2021 by Marc Comments

A while back Fast 9 director Justin Lin revealed that the movie would mark the franchise’s end with it being the first movie in a trilogy of sorts that would wrap up the core series (here) – but don’t fret, there’s still the Hobbs and Shaw movies and other planned spin-offs (here).

And now star, Vin Diesel confirms this and expands on the idea a bit more: “Every story deserves its own ending,” Diesel said during a press junket for the new movie.

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

The new movie, which opens on June 24th, may be the beginning of the end, but we still have another two movies to look forward to before the end: “This franchise was born from the pavement, from the concrete,” Diesel concludes, “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.”

I, for one, have become a big, big fan of the franchise over the years, so I don’t want it to end, but I’m happy that it has enough clout to ensure it has a proper send-off… now we have to wait to see what further adventures we’re going to get in other movies and TV shows to keep the story alive in some form.

Thoughts on the end of the Fast franchise?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
