Everything you need to know about Fast & Furious 10
February 4, 2023
Fast & Furious 10, officially called Fast X, will be speeding into cinemas next year and filming has now wrapped on the new movie. In the month of November it was reported that the first part of the two-part epic finale cost the sum of $340 million, a 70% increase over the $200 millon budget invested in the previous sequel.
Right, at a glance it seems a lot of money, but if we compare it with the sum that has made the series with more than 6.5 billion at the box office to date, don’t bet against Dom and co pulling in a profit this time around – especially since we’re coming to the end.
While saying goodbye to the favorite action series of the vast majority, as Vin Diesel himself said: “Every story deserves its own ending.” Then, in this note we’re gonna show you all the details you need to know about the last movie of this franchise.

When will it be released?
Despite there being some changes regarding the first date Universal announced for Fast X, it seems May 19th, 2023 is the date that has been kept until now. Besides, on April 20th, it was confirmed that the filming had begun, with Diesel providing regular updates on Instagram.
On the other hand, it was known that the shooting was finished in August, 2022. Nonetheless, as ever with these massive movies, we could well have some reshoots in the coming months.
Tyrese Gibson had previously noted that the plan is to shoot the two movies back-to-back, but it’s not clear yet if that is still the plan. As for why the series is getting a two-part finale, Diesel has said that it’s apparently because “there’s so much ground to cover”, adding: “There’s so many places and so many locations in the world that we have to visit.”
Although the release date of Fast & Furious 11 (or Fast X Part Two, however they style it), if they do film back-to-back, maybe we’ll be seeing it in April 2024. This is pure speculation though, so be sure to check back as more updates are revealed.
Who’s returning for Fast X?
Well, this cannot be an epic finale if we won’t have the Toretto’s family back, and if you’re a long-time fan, you’ll be happy to know that this time the family will be back even bigger with the surprise return of Sung Kang as Han, who will return alongside Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Ludacris as Tej, Jordana Brewster as Mia, Charlize Theron as the baddie Cipher, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey.
We imagine that’d be it in terms of the core cast, but we’d expect a lot of cameo roles and bit parts for characters across the entire series, including Lucas Black as Sean Boswell, Bow Wow as Twinkie, Jason Tobin as Earl Hu, and Shea Whigham as Agent Stasiak.
What can we expect from Fast X?
For now, the official plot is unclear, and since everything seems to be resolved in Fast & Furious 9, there’s not much we can assume. Nevertheless, according to what Kand told “Digital Spy,” we still have some loose ends, and they’re related to the credit sequence of Part 9:
“I think there’s still some questions that are unanswered. It’s a taste of where Han can go and where Deckard Shaw can go, because everybody loves Jason Statham. We’re honoured to have him in our universe, so why not?,” Kang told.
