Despite recent reports, the Fast & Furious franchise will not be ending after the seventh installment.
According to Universal Pictures executive Donna Langley, the series could see three more films following the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 that is scheduled to premiere in April 2015.
“We think there’s at least three more,” Langley told the Hollywood Reporter during a recent interview. “I think it’s still a growing franchise. We’ll see what happens with Furious 7, obviously, but our box office has grown over the past three or four films and internationally, in particular. So we think that there’s more to mine there. But we’re of course very mindful about fatigue.”
Langley also spoke about the late Paul Walker, one of the stars of the series who died in a tragic car accident last year. Many of the fans are curious how the producers will keep up the story line without one of the most integral characters.

“Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story,” Langley explained. “But there are many other great characters, and it’s also an opportunity to introduce new characters.
