Dwayne Johnson Sets To Return To ‘Fast And Furious’ Franchise

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson officially announced his return to the “Fast & Furious” franchise on Instagram Thursday, revealing that his long-standing feud with Vin Diesel ended secretly a year ago.

“Last summer, vindiesel and I put all the past behind us,” Johnson wrote on the Instagram post. “We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve – and always take care of the franchise, characters & FANS that we love.”

Following the actor’s surprise cameo in a mid-credits scene in recent hit Fast X, Universal Pictures announced Thursday that his character, security service agent Luke Hobbs, will lead an untitled spinoff.

Johnson, 51, joined the action-packed franchise’s fifth installment, Fast Five, in 2011, and co-starred opposite Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw in 2019’s spinoff Hobbs & Shaw.

His reappearance may have come as a surprise to fans considering repeated comments he would not be returning as Luke Hobbs, citing ongoing issues with co-star Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto. In 2021, Johnson objected to an Instagram post in which Diesel, 55, publicly asked him to rejoin him onscreen.

“I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return,” Johnson told CNN. He also indicated the only reason he agreed to appear in 2017’s The Fate of the Furious was not having to share any screen time with Diesel.

Johnson posted a video on Thursday celebrating the newly announced Luke Hobbs film: “Yes, it is true. Hobbs is back.”
