Fast & Furious Animated Series Coming To Netflix

Fast & Furious is coming to Netflix. Not just the latest movie or the back-catalog of flicks we’ve already seen, but with a new animated series.

The as-yet unnamed series is set to center around Dominic Toretto’s teenage cousin Tony. The story has the young Toretto and his friends recruited by government agents to infiltrate an elite racing league. But the scene is just a front for a criminal syndicate.

The show’s being done by DreamWorks Animation. The studio was recently acquired by Comcast-NBCUniversal, which in turn owns the multi-billion-dollar Fast & Furious franchise.

Vin Diesel Produces

We don’t have much else in the way of details, but the teaser image shown here suggests it could be broadcast (or webcast) in 3D. Vin Diesel serves as an executive producer. So do Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan, who produced the live-action films. And DreamWorks has its own producers Tim Hedrick and Bret Haaland on the project as well.

“We are excited to extend and expand our successful relationship with Netflix by not only delivering more high-quality DreamWorks programming, but connecting fans of Universal films with fascinating new stories,” said DreamWorks Animation president Margie Cohn. “Our new home at Universal marks an exciting new chapter for storytelling at our studio, and Fast & Furious is only the beginning.”

The cartoon show (if you can call it that) isn’t the only new installment in the works. The next film is set to reach a theater near you in July 2019, followed by the ninth and tenth chapters in April 2020 and 2021, respectively. So fans of the action-packed franchise have a lot to look forward to.

    So a 50 year old cartoon (Speed Racer) is being revived as Fast and Furious . . .

    • At least Speed Racer don’t have cheesy “racer turn agents and recruited by government” cliche.

    Nice, getting kids all excited about customized petrol cars, ready for when they come of age and have to buy an electric sh*tbox

      That is probably a sad reality. It is already a problem in europe. All cars are getting three cylinder turbo engines… 1.6 liters and more are starting to be a symbol of quite powerful and expensive car…

        All cars are getting three cylinder turbo engines?

        • ace_9

          Ok, I exaggerated a bit. I meant it more like “most of the new common cars in low to mid trims for common people” instead of “all”. For naturally aspirated engines there is now only one choice for people not willing to sacrifice performance, handling or something else and that’s mazda.

      i don’t think animated automobiles consume “petrol”, anyway who said they have internal combustion engines? Maybe they will have batteries, fuel cell, hydrogen or steam. It is Fast and Furious so they will probably be propelled by pure fantasy.

        Yeah, yeah, both of the cars on the illustration seem to be powered by electricity judging by their hood scoops and overall style. One of them is even spewing out some redundant electricity from the side discharge electrode 😀

    …and I bet they’ll animate fake car brands like GTA

      It would save their production of paying excessive clearance costs.

    • Not to mention merchandising rights, you don’t have to share it to those pesky manufacturer.

    You know its gonna be cringe as Fuuuck…. Hope they do cast some black people instead..Paul Walker’s character, Brain better be a Black bi-lesbian guy!

    • exeptor

      Why do you keep doing this? I’m not judging but just asking. What is the big reason behind it?

      • Christian

        Its 2018? Time changes 🙂

    No comment.

    Oh boy.
