The stage will be laid for the Fast & Furious franchise to come to a close with two final flicks after the release of F9 later this month. While it is unclear how the long-running franchise will conclude, it appears that the production will be big. Tyrese Gibson revealed to Collider that Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 would be shot back-to-back.
I have definitely asked some questions about 10 and 11. It has been confirmed we are going to shoot back-to-back and get both in the can. Which is interesting. I’m hearing that we’re going to touch a lot of continents between the two. I cannot say where, but a lot. The higher-ups that are involved in this franchise are specifically aware of the die-hard fans and supporters around the world. We all carry a particular torch of responsibility and knowing there is a beast, and we need to feed that beast and give them what they want, what they love, and what they’re used to.
Given everything the Fast & Furious franchise has already accomplished in previous installments, I’m not sure how they intend to top it with these final two sequels. Justin Lin, who directed F9, will return to direct the final two films, and he told THR in April that he sees F9 as the first half of a trilogy.”I was thinking of it as one chapter. It became very clear to me that if we were going to do that, we were going to need some real estate,” Lin said. “To the studio’s credit, it was like, ‘Yeah, let’s do it.’ That’s what we’ve been doing since I’ve been back, … processing it as almost like a trilogy as a final chapter.”

The official synopsis for F9:
Dom Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, lives a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, Brian, but they are aware that danger lurks just beyond their peaceful horizon. This time, the threat will force Dom to confront his past sins if he is to save those he cares about the most. His team comes together to stop a world-changing plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena).
F9 will hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
