Fans hoping to catch John Cena's debut in the Fast & Furious franchise will have to wait a little longer.
It was announced today that the films release date has been pushed back until April 2021 due to the coronavirus. The movie was originally scheduled to be released on May 22, 2020.
From Fast 9:
To our family of Fast fans everywhere,
We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga.
That’s why it’s especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film. It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all of our fans around the world to see the film this May.
We are moving the global release date to April 2021, with North America opening on April 2. While we know there is disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration.
Moving will allow our global family to experience our new chapter together. We’ll see you next spring.
Your Fast Family
