First released in 2001, the fast furious the franchise has now been going strong for over 20 years with the latest entry, F9: The fast saga, released in 2021. The franchise follows Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, an illegal street racer turned action hero who, along with a group of close allies, friends and family, works to save the world from various threats.

While Mia played an important role in F9: the fast sagathe character was notably absent from the previous Quick film, The fate of the furiousin 2017. Due to Walker’s tragic death while filming Furious 7, Mia and Brian had their endings rewritten, with both characters retiring at the end of the film. Although Brewster eventually returned to F9: the fast sagathe character’s return raises some interesting questions in the story world regarding why Mia returned, but Brian didn’t.
The cast of x fast gets bigger and bigger, and it’s possible that with so many characters, it was difficult to craft a story that features them all in a meaningful way. It remains to be seen how important Mia will be in the story of X fast, but Diesel’s message confirms that she will definitely return in some capacity. As Diesel alludes to in his caption, Mia and Brian represent the Quick the heart of the saga in many ways, and countless people might ultimately be disappointed to see one of the main cast members not return for Fast and Furious 10.
