Dwayne Johnson Says He & Vin Diesel “Put All The Past Behind Us” Ahead Of Fast & Furious Return

Dwayne Johnson The Rock & Vin Diesel Fast and Furious

Luke Hobbs is officially back in the Fast and Furious family according to an official announcement from Dwayne Johnson.

FBI Agent Hobbs first appeared in Fast 5 and became an integral part of the series, but he departed the franchise following a very public feud with series lead Vin Diesel.

Johnson has stated in the past that there was “no chance” of him returning, but just as in wrestling, one can never say never when it comes to Dominic Toretto’s ever-growing family.
