A Fast and the Furious Animated Series is on its way to Netflix, and, yes, those are real words.
Netflix on Monday announced that it is working with DreamWorks Animation on a Fast and the Furious Animated Series that will follow in the footsteps of the film series. However, you can also expect new characters as the series logline reveals.
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 organization bent on world domination.
Executive producers on the series will include Vin Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan who are all producers on the live-action films.
Will Fast and the Furious animated series live its life a quarter-mile at a time?
One has to wonder what tropes this project will do away with. Clearly, you need the cars, and being teenagers removes the Corona beer staple. The gratuitous sexy women are also probably a thing of the past.
This isn’t to say it’s not a good thing to do away with most of those items, but that leaves us with just the cars? I imagine this series is just going to be a lot of racing. Hopefully, there will also be some character development, but the films seem to skip that as well.
No release date was announced for the series yet, but one has to assume it will be fairly soon. With the live-action series wrapping up by 2021, the studio will want the animated series established well before then.
