Ludacris recently shared insights into his ongoing journey with the Fast & Furious franchise. In a candid conversation with PEOPLE, as he gears up to host the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Ludacris offered glimpses into his interactions with fans and his hopes for the future of the action-packed series.

Reflecting on his encounters with fans, Ludacris highlighted how their recognition often revolves around his latest endeavors. “Whatever the latest thing is I’ve done, that’s how people address me. It is a beautiful thing,” he remarked, recounting moments when fans reference his diverse portfolio, spanning from blockbuster movies to chart-topping music.

With his notable role as Tej Parker in the Fast & Furious saga, Ludacris expressed optimism about the franchise’s future. “Hopefully another Fast & Furious” film is on the horizon, he mused.

“I feel like we are definitely going to come back at some point very soon to surprise everyone,” he shared. “Will it be the last? I don’t know, but we shall see.”

Having been part of the franchise since 2003, Ludacris hinted at surprises in store for fans, fueled by the open-ended conclusion of the latest installment, Fast X.

“The last one was open-ended, so to speak. It kind of left people hanging,” Ludacris shared, hinting at the anticipation surrounding the next chapter. Despite speculations about the franchise’s culmination, Ludacris emphasized the enduring nature of such iconic series. “It’s almost like the beginning of something new, so I don’t feel like it’ll ever truly end either, but you never know,” he reflected.

While previous remarks by Vin Diesel hinted at a potential trilogy conclusion, recent indications point to the forthcoming entry as the franchise’s grand finale. Diesel’s heartfelt Instagram post underscored the significance of this finale as both an ending and a celebration of the familial bond forged throughout the series.
