“Fast X,” which is set to hit theaters on May 19, will mark the beginning of the end of the Fast and Furious franchise. Initially, the series was meant to wrap up with a two-part finale. However, at the “Fast X” premiere in Rome, Italy, on May 12, Vin Diesel, who’s led the franchise as Dominic Toretto since 2001, teased the movies could end with a trilogy instead. Although he didn’t officially confirm or deny anything, his co-star Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz) fueled the rumors by telling Fandango, “It’s three acts in any story.”
If it’s true, then the series will officially end after 13 movies. Castmembers like Diesel, Rodriguez, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris have starred in the majority of the “Fast and Furious” films, while Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham led the 2019 spinoff film “Hobbs & Shaw.” While talking about the franchise’s longevity at the “Fast X” premiere, Diesel told the crowd (via Entertainment Weekly), “‘Fast’ is now the longest franchise in motion picture history… with the same actors playing the same characters.”
