Variety reports today that Netflix has ordered a Fast and Furious animated series. This was done “under an expansion of the company’s ongoing multi-year deal with DreamWorks Animation Television.”
In the series, teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organization bent on world domination.
Margie Cohn, president of DreamWorks Animation Television has shared a statement with the announcement of the new animated series on Netflix.
“We are excited to extend and expand our successful relationship with Netflix by not only delivering more high-quality DreamWorks programming but connecting fans of Universal films with fascinating new stories. Our new home at Universal marks an exciting new chapter for storytelling at our studio, and Fast & Furious is only the beginning.”
The upcoming Fast and Furious animated series is coming on the heels of other Dreamworks Animation Netflix shows, such as Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters, Spirit Riding Free and All Hail King Julien.
