The 53-year-old actors said that the last two movies of the franchise could be potentially released in 2023 and 2024 respectively.
When asked about the franchise’s future during a press junket, he responded: ‘Every story deserves its own ending.’

He went on: ‘I know people are going to feel like it doesn’t have to end, but I think all good things should.
‘There are reasons for a finale. I think this franchise has deserved it.’
Even the film series is coming to an end, Vin said that the Fast and Furious cinematic universe will continue to exist in some other form.
The idea of concluding the series came after the conversation with Vin Diesel, stated by Director Justin Lin.
He said: ‘We got together and Vin says, “I think we should think about closing up the saga now.”
‘Nine is kind of the first film of the final chapter. We’re kind of reconfiguring everything so that the next two movies should wrap up this amazing journey for these characters.’
The first movie of the franchise, Fast and Furious, was released 20 years ago in 2001. Since then they had been breaking many box office records.
The official synopsis from Universal reads: ‘Dom is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over this peaceful horizon.
‘This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena).’
The film was expected to release last year but was pushed forward due to the pandemic.
