Revheads won't be short of a Fast and the Furious fix over coming years, with the movie franchise set to continue until 2021.

Fast and the Furious veteran actor Vin Diesel has confirmed the release dates of the next three movies, with Fast 8, 9 and 10 set to drop in 2017, 2019 and 2021 respectively.

The star posted the news on his Instagram, with a photo reading "2 decades, 10 films, 1 saga".

Fast 8, to commence production in June, will be the first movie of the franchise without star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in California in 2013.
