The Fast & Furious franchise is being turned into an animated series, Netflix announced on Monday, as a part of Netflix’s deal with DreamWorks Animation.

The animated series will follow Tony Toretto, Dom (Vin Diesel)’s teenage cousin, as he and his friends are recruited by the government to infiltrate an elite racing league that is a front for a crime organization bent on world domination. Film producers Diesel, Neil Moritz and Chris Morgan are attached to the series as executive producers, while Tim Hedrick (DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (Julien) will serve as both executive producers and showrunners.

“We are thrilled to take our fantastic partnership with DreamWorks Animation to the next level with new opportunities from the vast library of Universal Pictures,” said Melissa Cobb, Vice President of Kids and Family. “The Fast & Furious franchise is a global phenomenon beloved by audiences of all ages, and we can’t wait to get started on the new animated series that will capture the action, heart, humor and global appeal of the feature films.”

“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 Margie Cohn, President of DreamWorks Animation Television. “Our new home at Universal marks an exciting new chapter for storytelling at our studio, and Fast & Furious is only the beginning.”

With regards live action Fast and Furious, we have the spin-off – Hobbs & Shaw – heading our way. That follows Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters working together, and it is set to hit cinemas July 26, 2019.
