The Fast and Furious series is chugging towards its end. Spin-off films like Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw can keep the auto franchise going. But how about them continuation the action series centered on the characters of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham? Hobbs and Shaw is on RTL today at 8.15 p.m. We answer the most important questions about the future of the spin-offs and the main series Fast and Furious.

Is Hobbs and Shaw 2 still planned?

The short answer: No, currently Hobbs and Shaw 2 is neither planned nor in progress. The long answer isn’t much more optimistic, but offers bright spots. Hobbs and Shaw, while profitable, was not as successful as hoped. A budget of almost 200 million US dollars faced a box office result of 760 million US dollars. For comparison, Fast and Furious 6, 7 and 8 all grossed more, the last two grossing over $1 billion. Fast 9 was still suffering from the effects of the corona pandemic when it was launched in summer 2021. (Source: Box Office Mojo)

These numbers did not deter. However, they also did not encourage a Hobbs and Shaw sequel. The dispute between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson may have additionally slowed down the plans. The latest update comes from producer Kelly McCormick. She told Comic Book in December that a sequel was in the works “not in conversation”. However, spin-offs like Hobbs and Shaw will become more interesting once the Fast main series ends. And it doesn’t take that long anymore.

The Finale: When are Fast and Furious 10 and 11 coming?

Currently, 2 films from the almost universe are firmly planned:

  • Fast & Furious 10 launches on May 15, 2023

  • Fast and Furious 11 is the definitive finale in the action series centered on Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and will likely be released a year or two later

  • The near-world will not die with the end of the main series. The Studio Universal relies on the income from the profitable franchise. Various spin-offs have therefore been discussed over the years, including a film only about Michelle Rodriguez’ character Letty Ortiz. After Fast 11, however, another project should be in pole position for the time being: Hobbs and Shaw 2.

    What is Hobbs and Shaw about?

    In fact, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) have been bitter enemies since the events of Fast & Furious 6 and Fast & Furious 7. Despite their shared love of tuned-up cars, the Secret Service agent and the ex-enlisted soldier couldn’t be more different and would love to wring each other’s necks.

    But then the international terrorist Brixton (Idris Elba) appears on the scene, who has genetically upgraded his body and is now spreading fear and terror. He can even overcome Shaw’s able sister Hattie (Vanessa Kirby), who once worked as an agent for MI6. Hobbs and Shaw now realize they won’t be able to take down Brixton single-handedly – so with plenty of action, wry humor and, of course, plenty of car chases, they reluctantly join forces to save humanity.
