Despite the Fast & Furious franchise’s ninth installment being delayed by a whole year, there’s nonetheless some good news for its fans. In a Q&A session on Instagram recently, Dwayne Johnson addressed a question relating to a sequel to Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, confirming that a second movie is indeed in the works.

“We are developing now the next film, the next [Hobbs & Shaw] movie, and I’m pretty excited about it,” he said. “[We] just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go.”

If you’ve yet to see it, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw follows the frenemy duo Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), both of whom were introduced into the franchise as Dom’s (Vin Diesel) opponents. As the events play out, the two ultimately become Dom’s companions and allies, despite having a rather frictional dynamic. Called upon to solve an international case, the two have to learn to work with each other and contain their strong personalities. Through its entire run, the film made almost $760 million USD globally.
