What’s better than one idea for the new Fast & Furious series? No, not family, but five ideas! As a lifelong fan of the Fast & Furious franchise, I hope to put my knowledge of the series to good use and pitch some decent ideas! If you missed the previous article discussing the Fast & Furious series announcement you can find that here!
Honourable Mention: Leon’s Journey
As far as missing characters goes, the main absentee is Leon, the last original member of Dom’s crew that is unaccounted for. With Jesse & Vince dead and Letty alive, the last unknown fate we don’t know is Leon. Given that he wasn’t killed off as we know he left LA after the events of The Fast and The Furious but nothing after that. Being a member of the originals, I can’t help but feel for him. Seeing your old ‘family’ move on and make millions and not even give you a call…ouch! It would be nice to see what Leon is up to! Maybe he’s still running the same operation as Dom and he did back in ’01, jacking convoys using cars only with some new friends.
Another thing to note is that beautiful Jetta of Jesse’s! Leon and Jesse once seemed to be close so why not reintroduce that iconic car and have it be in the hands of Leon wherever he is! Better yet, given how active Chad Lindberg is on the #BringBackJesse, why not find some way to bring back Jesse and have the duo doing their own thing somewhere!
Idea One: Gisele’s Story
One of the many things I still wonder about is just how Gisele landed up with Braga. In Fast & Furious, we first meet Gisele as Braga’s lieutenant and she later betrays him…But why?! Where did their relationship come from? I’d love to see where Gisele comes from. This helps us know more about her but also doesn’t have the usual problem that this series has with bringing people back from the dead somehow.
Idea Two: The True Beginings
If we’re going to be taking a dive into Dominic’s past which is the current rumour, I’d like to take a look at the original crew. As much as I don’t want to see Dominic Toretto anymore, I wouldn’t mind seeing how the original crew came together. Mia told Brian a brief history in The Fast and The Furious of the original crew but it would be nice to see their true origins. That is the only way I’ll take more Dominic Toretto!
Idea Three: Tej’s Miami Adventures
When we were introduced to Tej in 2Fast 2Furious, Tej’s Garage was shown off to be a hub for racers and the charismatic Tej doing water ski racing behind it, in true Miami fashion. It would be so refreshing to take a focus on Tej and various racers he knows. As the race organiser of Miami, the series could return to its true roots and become what it once was; a series all about cars! I have to admit this is my favourite idea! I’ve always wanted the series to return to what it was rather than what it currently is.
Idea Four: Miami to LA
In the Turbo Charged Prelude to 2Fast2Furious, we watch Brian O’Conner and his move from LA. Granted, it is time-lapsed to save time but it was good to see! I’d like to see a series which takes focus on Brian and Roman and their adventures after 2Fast2Furious. Sadly, the likelihood of this is slim due to Paul Walker’s passing but you never truly know! It would be interesting to see how Brian gets back onto the right side of the law.
Idea Five: Sean’s Reign
This last idea is one that a lot of people have speculated about for years! Which is ‘what happened after Tokyo Drift?’ It would be nice to see what happened to Sean, how long he reigned as Drift King in Tokyo. It could take an approach that sees Shaun face a new challenger to his drifting crown every few episodes and see Sean need to make several modifications to his car in order to win. This could possibly be the underlying message; you always need to better yourself!
In a nutshell, what I want to truly see in the Fast & Furious series is more cars. Cars were what made this series into the juggernaut it is today! So, I just want to see the series return to what it used to be and feature more street racing and cars in general!
