The film will now hit theaters in the same month as Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 and The Little Mermaid remake.

The next installment of Universal's Fast & Furious saga hitting theaters has been pushed back to May 19, 2023 according to The Wrap.

Prior to this announcement, the 10th entry in the Fast series was scheduled to debut on April 7, 2023. That's a delay of a little more than a month--though since it's more than a year's away still, it isn't that staggering of a disappointment. In May that year, the movie will serve to further fortify what will be an impressive early 2023 summer slate of movies, as that month will also see release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 and a live-action remake of The Little Mermaid coming on Memorial Day weekend.

Fast & Furious 10, directed by Justin Lin, will begin filming in January 2022 according to star Vin Diesel himself, and it's even possible that Fast 10 and 11 will be filmed back-to-back. While Dwayne Johnson has officially severed ties with the series after a feud with Diesel, most of the rest of the cast is expected back, including Diesel himself, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Sung Kang are all set to return, but John Cena hasn't confirmed his return yet. As of November, Diesel was still appealing to Johnson--on Instagram--to return to the franchise.

No details have been released indicating whether the second part of Fast & Furious 10--which is due in 2024--will also be postponed. Justin Lin, who has directed five of the previous films, will direct both movies.
