Fast and Furious - Will there be a Hobbs and Shaw 2?

It's been years since Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham gave us their spin-off from the Fast and Furious movies, so we're now looking to Hobbs and Shaw 2.

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will hopefully return for Hobbs and Shaw 2

Will there be a Hobbs and Shaw 2? We love the Fast and Furious movies, but it’s wrong to let Vin Diesel have all the fun. Hobbs and Shaw showed that there’s plenty of room for the supporting characters in the vehicular franchise to run, jump, shoot, and drive through their own adventures.

It’s been several years since Fast and Furious movies got its first spin-off with Hobbs and Shaw, which we think is one of the best Dwayne Johnson movies, and made the most of his adversarial chemistry with Jason Statham. Fans of the Fast franchise have since been crossing their fingers in the hope that the characters will share the screen again in new movies.

There was a slight issue, however… Johnson did not get on well with Vin Diesel on the set of Fast movies, and for some time was thought to be gone from the franchise forever. So, will there be a Hobbs and Shaw 2? Can we expect to see two of the best Fast and Furious characters together again? Fast X spoilers ahead.

Will there be a Hobbs and Shaw 2?

There are no official plans for Hobbs and Shaw 2, but with Dwayne Johnson’s Fast X cameo, it’s not an impossibility.

Hobbs and Shaw punched its way through cinemas in 2019 and earned a mammoth $760m at the global box office, which is quite the haul for a spin-off. By the end of that year, all involved were making very positive noises about a sequel. Money talks, after all.

Then, in 2021, Johnson provided us with an update about an idea he had that sounded a lot like a potential farewell for Hobbs. He described it as “the antithesis of what Fast and Furious movies generally are”. It’s unclear whether that idea ever went beyond Johnson’s head and onto the pages of a script. But, in December 2022, Hobbs and Shaw producer Kelly McCormick poured cold water on our hopes when she announced that a Hobbs and Shaw sequel was not happening at the moment.

Hobbs’ cameo at the end of Fast X does open up the possibility of Hobbs and Shaw 2 because Johnson is clearly open to appearing in the franchise further, but a sequel has still not materialized.
