Will there be a Fast and Furious 12? We explain the reasons behind the decisions for the Fast and Furious franchise.
The Fast and Furious franchise is a top-rated car franchise. It originated in humble street racing before expanding into massive action blockbusters, indistinguishable from many superhero films out there. But it looks like it might try and pull off the one thing superhero films can’t seem to do, and that’s the end.
Fast and Furious 10 and 11 will bring a close to the franchise, with a two-part finale starting with Jason Momoa’s Dante bringing destruction to the Fast family. He’s angry at the team for ruining his life in Fast Five and has devised a plan for revenge.
But with all this talk of Fast and Furious 10 and 11, people have wondered if there will be a Fast and Furious 12.
Is there going to be Fast and Furious 12?
There will not be a twelfth mainline installment in the Fast and Furious franchise. The team has confirmed that it is the end of the saga and that after Fast and Furious 11, there will be no new entries.
The team has also confirmed that they were shooting Fast and Furious 10 and 11 back to back, though since director Justin Lin was replaced by Louis Leterrier, it’s unclear if that happened.
Will Fast and Furious 10 and 11 be the last?
After the tenth and eleventh films, there will be no more Fast and Furious movies. The team behind the film has even stated that this will be a two-part finale to the saga, akin to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
But while there will be no more mainline installments in the franchise, it’s possible that if Fast and Furious 10 and 11 do well at the box office, Universal might keep the franchise alive via spin-off movies.
They’ve already done this with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this trend continued. There are plenty of characters to explore in their films.
Why is the franchise ending after the eleventh film?
There hasn’t been an official reason why the Fast and Furious franchise will end after its eleventh mainline installment, but there are some probable reasons. Firstly, the series has conquered all it’s hoped to do.
It’s gone from simple street racing to action blockbusters, using tanks, jumping out of planes, buildings, and submarines, reviving previously dead characters, introducing wild family members, and even a quick visit to space. There are no more roads for this franchise to go down, so it’s best to end it before things get too repetitive.
Turning to the founding actors of the franchise, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster have been playing the same characters for over 20 years now, so they likely want to move on, and the action-heavy sequences might be more taxing now they’re older.
Diesel has also previously spoken to Vulture, saying that he wanted to give the fans of the franchise a satisfying conclusion, as part of the journey is the end. Giving this franchise that’s meant so much to him a proper send-off is a wise move, else Diesel risks it is getting unceremoniously canceled by Universal.
A true ending in Hollywood is brutal to come by, so this franchise’s end might be a rare sight and might attract new viewers based on that fact alone.
