Buckle up, Fast & Furious fans: the franchise’s 10th main installment, “Fast X,” is on the horizon, and we finally have our first look at it.

Earlier this year star Vin Diesel teased his return as Dominic “Dom” Toretto by sharing a mysterious “Fast X” poster on Instagram. “We’re almost there… We can’t wait to share a taste of what’s coming…,” he captioned it, the film’s first trailer debuted on Feb. 10.

More than 20 years after Fast & Furious first burst onto the scene, the street-racing global juggernaut is coming to an end with “Fast X.” However, for its last lap, the saga will be split into a two-part finale, which Diesel previously announced during an “F9” press event. “Part of the reason why ‘Fast 10’ has to be broken into two different movies is because there’s so much ground to cover,” he explained. “There’s so many places and so many locations in the world that we have to visit.”

So what will “Fast X” be about? Well, details about the final movie are still being kept under wraps, and after “F9″‘s space-bound adventures, there’s no telling what direction the upcoming film will take. However, considering “Fast X” is the last installment, it’s possible it’ll focus on passing the torch to the next generation of young racers who may follow in their parents’ footsteps.

Plot “Cheaper by the Dozen” star Leo Abelo Perry plays the role of Dom and Elena Neves’s (Elsa Pataky) son — who was kidnapped as a baby along with his mother in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” and used by Charlize Theron’s Cipher to blackmail Dom — which could be a hint as to where the story will go. But there’s still no telling what to expect until “Fast X”‘s trailer arrives.

So far, the road to “Fast X” has been filled with good and bad surprises. While many fans are excited to see new faces like Jason Momoa and Brie Larson join the franchise for its final stretch, some may be saddened knowing Dwayne Johnson isn’t returning as Luke Hobbs, despite Diesel’s public pleas.

In late 2021, the former costars made headlines when Diesel tried to bait Johnson into rejoining the Fast & Furious franchise with an Instagram post captioned, “My little brother Dwayne… the time has come . . . I say this out of love… but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny.”

Johnson, who last appeared in 2019’s “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” later responded to his rival’s request in an interview with CNN and called the post “an example of his manipulation.” “I told him directly — and privately — that I would not be returning to the franchise,” Johnson told the outlet. “I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return.”

Ahead, find out who is returning to the Fast & Furious franchise, plus everything else we know about “Fast X” so far.
