A ‘Fast & Furious’ Animated Series Is Coming Whether It’s An Inch Or A Mile

Streaming giant Netflix has ordered an animated series based on the popular Fast & Furious movies, teaming up with DreamWorks Animation to produce the show.

According to its official description, the series will centre around Tony Toretto, the teenage cousin of Dom Toretto (played by Vin Diesel in the movies) who is tasked with bringing down a criminal racing gang. Coincidentally, Tony is also very good at driving, which clearly runs in the family.

You can read the entire description below.

Teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organisation bent on world domination. Tim Hedrick (DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (All Hail King Julien) will serve as executive producers and showrunners. The series is also executive produced by Vin Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan who also serve as producers on the live-action Fast & Furious franchise.

There’s no release date for the series at this stage, but it’s likely early days right now. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how close to the movies the series will play, which is, funnily enough, a subject my good pal Ben Mcleay wrote about yesterday. You should definitely check it out below.

I, for one, look forward to seeing how this show pans out. It’s a safe bet to assume that it will be both “fast” and “furious”.
