'Fast and Furious 9' Release Date: When 'The Fast Saga' Is Out in Theaters

Fast and Furious 9 is finally coming to cinemas after a series of delays. Also known as F9: The Fast Saga, fans are expecting this film to bring an end to the beloved franchise, or at least throw up some major revelations along the way.

Here we break down where you can catch the film on the big screen, and when it will be coming out in movie theaters.

When Fast and Furious 9 Is Out In Theaters

Fast and Furious 9, of F9: The Fast Saga, is out in theaters on June 25.

This is more than 20 years since the first movie, The Fast and Furious, was released on June 22, 2001.

The franchise has come a long way since then, with nine movies in total, as well as spin-off movie Hobbs and Shaw, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

As for F9, the movie has had a stop-start release history.

It was initially scheduled to be released on April 19, 2019, but IGN reported it had been delayed by a year in order to make way for the Hobbs and Shaw spin-off movie.

This was a huge hit, fuelling a desire for even more Fast and Furious content.

After this, it was pushed back again by just six weeks, which was reportedly to avoid clashing with another major movie release: No Time To Die, the 25th Bond movie.

By this point the COVID-19 pandemic had hit, and theaters across the country had closed, meaning more and more movies were delayed.

The pandemic caused the final release date to be named as June 25, 2021, more than two years after the original date.

Altogether, the film was delayed five times as different movies took its place and the coronavirus struggle went on.

The Movies That Went Before F9

Now Fast and Furious 9 has a release date, fans may want to try and catch up with the previous movies at lightning speed.

The first movie stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker as a racer and an undercover cop trying to track down a gang smuggling DVD players, respectively.

The movie franchise has come incredibly far since then, with missions involving cyberterrorists, assassins and a heist to steal $100 million from a corrupt businessman.

To watch the movies, it makes sense to enjoy them in chronological order, as this will inform some of the surprise twists in the upcoming movie.

Here is the chronological order of the Fast and Furious movies
