There are few contemporary franchises with the (surprising) longevity of the Fast and Furious franchise. The most recent instalment, Furious 7, seemed to put a pretty strong capper on the whole narrative, tying up many loose ends from other films. Letty regained her memory, Dom punched out his adversary, and Brian drove off into the sunset. The family was reunited, but ended on a melancholy note as Dom and Brian finally, inevitably, part ways.
With Fast & Furious 8 announced already, one does wonder where the franchise can go from here. Join us as we take a look at several things that the next outing in this high-octane series will have to keep in mind should it hope to be as successful as its predecessors have been.
