Fast & Furious spin-offs on hold until main series concludes

We are destined to experience Fast & Furious films until the end of time, it seems – but the spin-offs must wait.

Even now the end has been announced for the mainline Fast & Furious series, it hasn’t. Not really. At the film’s premiere, star and franchise magnate, Vin Diesel announced that the two part finale might just be three parts after all. Now, Diesel has piped up again to state that the all-female spin-off he’s been developing for a while is still coming, but is now part of a multitude of spin-offs.

Speaking to VarietyDiesel said “I started developing the female spinoff… in 2017 with other spinoffs, and the sooner I deliver the finale, the sooner I can launch all the spinoffs.”

“All the spinoffs.”

We’re not sure how we feel about that, especially if the Fast finale does become a three-parter that stretches throughout the entirety of this decade, meaning we’ll probably be seeing ‘all the spinoffs’ engulfing the 2030s, ending by the turn of the decade just in time for the inevitable reboot of the mainline series throughout the 2040s.

Frankly, we’re not sure if we have the stamina for it, but we’ll try. After all, if you can’t try for your family, then who can you try for?

Fast X is in cinemas at the moment and is enjoying a pretty big opening although it’s still got some way to go before making a profit for Universal given its huge reported production budget. Still, Universal can expect to make plenty more piles of cash from Fast X over the next few years as the film moves between various platforms.

In the meantime, I’ll be going back and rewatching my favourite, the first one, which was basically Point Break with cars instead of surfboards. Or maybe I’ll just rewatch Point Break. 

We’ll bring you more on the upcoming spinoffs as we hear about them.
