Fast X has finally received a streaming release date which is great for fans, but not so great for audiences hoping to stream the movie on Netflix.

On August 16, NBCUniversal announced that Fast X will be available to stream beginning Friday, Sept. 15 which is amazing for fans looking to enjoy the latest installment of the franchise from the comfort of their homes. The bad news is that the movie will not be coming to Netflix.

Instead of joining the list of Fast and Furious movies streaming on Netflix, Fast X will instead be streaming exclusively on Peacock which will also become home to several additional films in the franchise in September.

While the update is definitely disappointing for Netflix subscribers hoping to enjoy the latest film in the franchise, at least we’ll be able to watch it on one of the bigger streamers starting in September.

What Fast and the Furious movies are on Netflix?

As of August 2023, there are currently five Fast and the Furious movies streaming on Netflix. The available films include Fast & Furious (2009), The Fast and the Furious (2001), Fast Five (2011), The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), and 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003).

In addition to these three movies, Netflix is also home to the animated series Fast & Furious Spy Racers which currently has six seasons consisting of 52 episodes total.

Will Fast X be on Netflix?

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that Fast X will be coming to Netflix anytime soon. As the film is a Universal Studios film, it will stream on Peacock and it’s unlikely Universal will look to sell its streaming rights to a competitor such as Netflix, at least in the interim future.

While there is always a slight chance the movie could come to Netflix in the future, it’s not likely the movie will be streaming on Netflix at any point this year.
