Entertainment Weekly has announced that the upcoming sixth season of their popular BINGE Podcast series will focus on Universal Pictures’ beloved Fast & Furious film franchise, which has earned more than $5 billion worldwide. EW’s BINGE celebrates the most addictive shows and movies best consumed in indulgent portions, featuring behind-the-scenes details and exclusive interviews with the creators and stars. Previous seasons have tackled RuPaul’s Drag Race, Community, Schitt’s Creek, Friday Night Lights and the Harry Potter films.
The upcoming season of EW’s BINGE will take fans through all of the previous Fast films and the upcoming ninth chapter, Fast & Furious 9, in a nine-week series featuring conversations with the stars who brought those movies to life. Hosted by EW Social Media Director Chanelle Johnson and EW Associate Editor Derek Lawrence, the series gives fans an in-depth look at the making of the ride-or-die franchise through exclusive interviews with the whole Fast family — from director Justin Lin to stars Sung Kang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Dominic Toretto himself, Vin Diesel.
Each BINGE episode will focus on one movie in the franchise with a Fast cast member from that particular film. Beginning April 30th with Vin Diesel, new episodes will drop every Friday leading up to the highly anticipated release of Fast & Furious 9 on 8th July.

Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).
Fast & Furious 9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
