Fast And Furious 9 Release Pushed Back By Almost A Year Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

If you were looking forward to seeing the new Fast and Furious film this May, we have some disappointing news to bring you - its release has been delayed by over 10 months.

The 22 May 2020 F9 debut has been scrapped, with the film instead coming out on 2 April 2021 in North America. Release dates for the rest of the world haven’t yet been confirmed.

Although the outbreak of Covid-19 - now classified by the World Health Organisation as a pandemic - isn’t specifically mentioned in the Twitter statement put out by the filmmakers behind The Fast Saga, there can be no doubt as to what the cause of the delay is.

“It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all our fans around the world to see the film this May,” it read, adding, “While we know there is a disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration”.

F9 sees the return of Justin Lin, who directed Tokyo Drift and the following three F&F films. The latest chapter in the franchise also involves beloved character Han Lue returning from the dead.

The new release date for the film lands on the very day when F10 - the final film in the core saga - was due to come out, so we can expect this to be pushed to April 2022 at the earliest.



At this point something not being delayed or cancelled is bigger news

I feel that they made the right decision to delay it because of the coronavirus, because for them to release it in May 2020 despite the outbreak would just be a complete disregard to public health.

Not to mention how much more the virus would have spread…

May is still kinda late tbh, it’s in two months and the beginning of the summer, a lot of things can change during that period
