When is the Fast and Furious 10 release date? Vin Diesel's action movie franchise about living life a quarter mile at a time continues to get bigger and bigger, and now it's about to hit the stratosphere. After getting to orbit in Fast 9, Dom Toretto and his crew show zero signs of slowing down as we veer towards the tenth mainline instalment, with
Louis Leterrier is directing, after Justin Lin stepped away due to creative differences on the Fast and Furious movie. At this point, engines are really getting hot. John Cena has become part of the adventure movie series, as Dom's long lost brother Jakob. Han (Sung Kang) is back, and Jason Statham is still around too, causing tension. They'll need to work it all out, though, to take down Cipher (Charlize Theron), the cyberterrorist who's been antagonising the lot of them.
She escaped again at the end of the last thriller movie, but now she's up against a larger group than ever before, with Fast and Furious characters from across the breadth of the franchise showing up to lend a hand. What kind of high-octane antics can we expect? And what is the Fast and Furious 10 release date? Strap in, because we've got all the information you need, right here.
When is the Fast and Furious 10 release date?
As of now, Fast and Furious 10 will come out in theatres on May 19, 2023. This is after several delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic. At first, the sequel was scheduled for April 2, 2021, which then became Fast 9’s release date.
Fast and Furious 10 shifted to February 2023, before being pushed to April 2023, and finally, this date in May 2023. The scale of production on these movies, with their extended driving sequences and multiple set-pieces that are usually shot on location, makes coordinating around restrictions difficult.
On April 20, Diesel revealed that filming had begun, along with revealing the logo for what’s now known as Fast X.
An auspicious start! Rest assured we’ll be keeping this piece updated as things move forward.
Is there a Fast and Furious 10 trailer?
Sadly, there is no Fast and Furious 10 trailer yet. Production is underway, but at time of writing it was still in the thick of it, meaning it might be some time before we get any kind of teaser.

That said, Diesel has been posting behind-the-scenes updates. One involves Jason Momoa and a muscle car. Trailers for Fast movies tend to drop around the six month mark before the release date, putting an expected date on December 2022. But we’ll just have to wait and see!
Fast and Furious 10 plot speculation
Generally, the story of Fast 10 will cover Dom, Letty, and everyone else trying to find Cipher. She’s evaded them twice now, and with all the heartache she’s caused, they’re going to be more determined than ever to bring her in.
In January 2022, it was revealed that Jason Momoa would be playing a brand new villain in the movie too. So, it is likely that we will see the star join Cipher in the upcoming flick. What the two will get up to? that, we still don’t know for sure.
In Fast 9, we got a taste of the crew going to space. Expect to see more of that, with Dom and some suped-up muscle car heading to the stars above in his battle with Cipher. He’ll be living life one quarter lightyear at a time.
Another plot point that’s sure to be prominent is Han’s revenge on Deckard Shaw. The Fast 9 post-credits scene had the two of them meet face-to-face, Deckard looking like he’s seen a ghost. As far as he’s concerned, he has: he tried to kill Han, and got pretty close, too. That’s not something easily forgiven or forgotten.
Finally, Nathalie Emmanuel has stated that her character, the hacker Ramsey, will be taking on more of a leadership role in Fast and Furious 10. Within this, she has shared that Ramsey will prove her importance to the rest of the team, so it looks likely that she’ll have a more prominent role when the sequel drops.
Fast and Furious 10 cast
Although few people have been confirmed, we can safely assume all the regular cast will return in Fast and Furious 10. Vin Diesel is obviously in, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Jason Statham – all the usuals. It’s likely that Helen Mirren and Kurt Russel, now also regulars, will appear in one form or another.
In March 2022, Tyrese Gibson posted on Instagram that he’d “just finished reading the F10 script……… we are are officially on some other other shit…” So, expect the unexpected.

There’ll be more additions, too. The DCEU‘s Aquaman, Jason Momoa, has been confirmed for the Fast cast. He’ll act as one of the movie’s villains, and the mega-star has said he’s excited to be taking on another ‘bag guy’ role.
We’ll keep you informed on other Hollywood superstars who sign on to drive expensive cars at ludicrous speeds.

Will Dwayne Johnson be in Fast and Furious 10?
No – Dwayne Johnson has been adamant that he will not appear in any more of the main Fast sequels. This is due to an ongoing feud between him and franchise star Vin Diesel. The two had a falling out while filming The Fate of the Furious, which has since spilt out into comments via interviews and social media.
Diesel requested Johnson’s return on Instagram. “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,” he says. “I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfil your destiny.”
Humble roots: The Fast and the Furious cast
It did little to change Johnson’s mind. “When Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly – and privately – that I would not be returning to the franchise,” he told CNN. “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.”
