Universal Pictures & Netflix are switching gears & are racing to the finish line with a Fast and Furious series. The series will be be animated & will focus on characters outside Dom & the gang, who we’ve come to enjoy throughly on the big screen.
The animated series is confirmed to focus on Dom’s (Vin Diesel) cousin & his team who are recruited by the government to take down an elite racing league that is a front for a crime organization bent on world domination. No visuals of the characters & voice cast has been released, but we will have Neil Moritz, Vin Diesel & Chis Morgan locked in as executive producers. The series doesn’t have a release date but the series is currently in production.
