The beloved Fast & Furious franchise is coming to Netflix in a new animated series, the first series in the expansion of a deal between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
With this expanded deal, Netflix essentially gets a first look at DreamWorks Animation series based on Universal film properties, and the Fast & Furious franchise is one of them.
This Fast & Furious animated series will reportedly focus on teenager Tony Toretto, who follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom (Vin Diesel) when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving a crime organization bent on world domination.
Tim Hedrick (DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (All Hail King Julien) will serve as executive producers and showrunners, alongside Vin Diesel as well as Neal Mortiz and Chris Morgan, who also produce the live-action franchise.
The voice cast and other characters for this animated spinoff has not been revealed yet, but this Fast and the Furious animated show builds on a five-year deal between DWA and Netflix, which has resulted in 14 original series on the streaming service.
