    Seriously? Part 6. They are definitely going to have to get creative with their titles moving forward. Oh, thanks for asking. I do have some suggestions...

    1. Fast and furious: Friday the 13th

    2. Furious and fast

    3. Fast and furious: fasten your seatbelt

    4. Fast and furious: rocky 4

    5. Fast and furious: license to drive (do I smell a crossover?)

    6. Fast and furious: seite; the Mexican mile

    7. Fast and furious: 2030

    8. Fast and furious: Hot rods (this is the prequel)

    9. Much too fast and too damn furious

    10. Fast and furious: the lame top ten

      I think this will be good! This series is a shining example of a franchise that almost died, that they brilliantly were able to save! Proves these writers know what they are doing!

        i love this franchise. it is one of the few that has no limits, can expand/contract as it wants and can be local or global. F5 was awesome and showed the star and staying power of this franchise so long as there is vision. especially considering how they took a spinoff (Tokyo Drift) and incorporated in into the mainstream franchise. looking fwd to F6.

            @cupid Well, if no mention or cameo, we can assume he's dead or not included. Hans is the only character keeping the continuity

              @bawnian-dexeus I know that, but is that the only reason why it should be set after TD?, because if it is set before TD but they left him out, what would be so different if it were to be set after TD?

                @cupid If Hans is alive, it's still before TD
