Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Confirms Return to Fast and Furious in Surprise Announcement


In an electrifying announcement on June 1, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed his return to the Fast and Furious franchise. The 51-year-old actor took to Twitter to share the exciting news, revealing that his beloved character Hobbs is back for the next Fast and Furious installment.

Johnson stated, “Hope you’ve got your funderware on. Hobbs is back, and he just got late.” His tweet referenced the surprise teaser of his character at the end of Fast X, which delighted audiences around the world. Johnson likened the global reactions to his character’s reappearance to a rock concert’s energy and enthusiasm, expressing his gratitude and love for his fans.

“The next Fast and Furious film you’ll see the legendary lawman in will be the Hobbs Movie,” Johnson shared, “That will serve as a fresh new chapter and set up for Fast X part two.” The actor’s announcement implies the rekindling of a relationship between him and Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the franchise.

In November 2021, Diesel shared an Instagram post calling Johnson his “little brother” and urging him to return for the finale of Fast X. Diesel expressed his dedication to fulfilling his promise to their late co-star, Paul Walker, of creating the best finale. However, Johnson deemed Diesel’s post as manipulative in a CNN interview the following month. The actor took issue with Diesel invoking his children and Walker’s death in his plea.

Nevertheless, Johnson seemed to put these disagreements behind him in his announcement, expressing a commitment to the franchise’s fans and his passion for the franchise. He highlighted his “audience first mentality” and emphasized his love and appreciation for the fans.

In his signature Hobbs style, Johnson concluded the announcement by stating, “Daddy’s gotta go to work.” The actor’s announcement not only confirms his return to the franchise but also signals a new phase for the franchise, much to the excitement of Fast and Furious fans worldwide.
