Vin Diesel confirms release dates for ninth and 10th Fast and Furious movies

There's at least five more years in the franchise

Vin Diesel, star of Universal's Fast and Furious franchise, has confirmed that there will be two more movies after the upcoming Fast 8.

The actor, who plays street racing legend turned semi-CIA operative Dominic Toretto, posted the release dates for the final two movies on his Instagram account Tuesday night.

Fast and Furious 9 will be released on April 19, 2019, while the 10th installment will come out April 2, 2021. Diesel captioned the post "2 decades. 10 films. 1 saga," but didn't add any more details.

The final two films, which would round out the trilogy that Diesel has plans for, were first announced back in November. Jeff Shell, chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, told Variety that Diesel always had a plan for the ninth and 10th films, and the studio was dedicated to making sure those movies happened.

Shell also commented on the possibility of spinoff films for various characters within the franchise, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's popular Agent Dobbs. While Diesel told Variety that they were already in the preliminary stages of developing these films, Shell said their main focus was the eighth, ninth and tenth movies.

"Let's get three more done and then see where we are from there," Shell said.

Fast 8, which marks the second entry in the franchise without Paul Walker's Brian O'Connor (after Tokyo Drift), is set to be released April 14, 2017.
