Vin Diesel announced on his Facebook page the Fast and Furious franchise will come to an end after "one last trilogy."
Universal Studios chairman Donna Langley announced last year the long-lasting franchise still has profit potential, but they have to be careful in order to avoid "fatigue." She mentioned at least three more movies could come out and now Vin Diesel has confirmed that F&F will end after "one last trilogy" which will kick off with Furious 8 programmed for an April 14, 2017 release. Diesel also says an announcement regarding the names of the directors for the three remaining movies will be disclosed very soon.
As a reminder, Furious 8 will take place in New York and will see the return of the crew, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kurt Russell who will have a more important role in the newest film.
While the Fast and Furious franchise will end after the tenth movie, there actually might be a spin-off with Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson) as the main character, but a final decision has not been made yet.
Universal Studios certainly wants to milk the cow for all its worth especially since Furious 7 has so far grossed more than $1.5 billion after debuting on April 3 this year.
