Fast And Furious 10 Release Date, Cast, And Plot - What We Know So Far

Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Justin Lin's "F9" proved incredibly successful at the box office and with fans of the long-running series. Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his found family of crooks, street racers, spies, and all-around badasses went on another mission to save the world and managed to thrill audiences along the way. However, nobody can save the world forever, and the "Fast" franchise is entering its final quarter-mile before our favorite street racing heroes ride off into the sunset.

We have known for some time that the "Fast and Furious" franchise would come to an end with the inevitable release of "Fast 11," as Vin Diesel has remained adamant about his desire to give the franchise a proper conclusion. However, the beginning of the two-part end will officially kick off when "Fast 10" debuts. With all of that said, let's dive into some of the key details that we know about "Fast 10," including its release date, cast, and plot.

What is Fast and Furious 10's release date?

One thing fans of the "Fast and Furious" franchise are dying to know is when the tenth installment in the long-running series will finally debut. Recently (per EW), it was revealed that "Fast 10" would start shooting in 2022 and hit theaters on April 7, 2023. This is relatively consistent with other installments in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, as entries in the back half of the series have seen success debuting in the late spring/early summer window, with the COVID-driven June 2021 release for "F9" actually standing out as a later release than usual for the series.

While we currently know the release date for "Fast 10," it's unclear when the franchise will officially come to an end. It has been confirmed that "Fast 11" will wrap up the mainline "Fast" franchise, but no official release date has been released yet. However, with "Fast 10" beginning production next year and hitting theaters in April 2023, we will likely get more information on the finale as the penultimate film in the franchise draws near.

Who is in the cast of Fast and Furious 10?

Without family, you cannot have a "Fast and Furious" franchise, so expect plenty of familiar faces to return to the series when "Fast 10" finally debuts. At this time, Vin Diesel is the only official cast member listed on the "Fast 10" IMDb page, but many expect the usual players, including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, and Ludacris, to return. Given where the previous film leaves off, it's also reasonable to assume that Charlize Theron will return as Cipher, and that Jason Statham will come back as villain-turned-hero Deckard Shaw.

Then, there's the question of individuals who may or may not return. One thing we know for certain is that Dwayne Johnson will not reprise his role as Luke Hobbs. The actor had a high-profile, real-life feud with Vin Diesel during the production of "The Fate of the Furious," and as a result, Johnson has largely moved on from the main "Fast and Furious" movies. It's possible he could still return as Hobbs for another "Hobbs & Shaw" film, but is not coming back to Dom's crew anytime soon. As for the other major wrestler in the series, John Cena has not confirmed a return as Jakob Toretto. However, with his fate left open-ended at the end of "F9," a return is still possible.

What is the plot of Fast and Furious 10?

The exact plot of "Fast 10" is not currently known. However, there are several threads from "F9" that will likely continue. Chief among these is Charlize Theron's Cipher, who remains at large and has a bone to pick with Dom after being foiled for a second time. There's also the question of Jakob Toretto's potential return to the franchise, as the long-lost brother of Dom made a face turn in the final act of the film and helped his brother's crew bring Cipher down. Finally, there's the showdown between Han and Deckard Shaw teased by the "F9" mid-credits scene.

Considering the threads planted in "F9," it's also worth remembering how much the "Fast and Furious" franchise loves its continuity. Though the franchise tends to tell a continuous story from film to film, it also tends to dig deep into its chronology to bring back characters and resurrect seemingly retired plot threads. As a result, and knowing that the series has to wrap up its overarching story in two movies, fans can reasonably expect a dense narrative when "Fast 10" debuts.

That's all of the biggest and best information that we currently have about "Fast 10." With Dom and his crew poised to take two more silver screen rides before the franchise comes to an end, we will certainly learn more about the penultimate film in the franchise in the coming year. "Fast 10" will debut in theaters on April 7, 2023.
