Jordana Brewster is officially back for Fast & Furious 9.

Vin Diesel took to his Instagram page to confirm the news, on day four of filming the ninth movie in the Fast & Furious series.

The clip finds Diesel and Brewster on the movie's rural location outside London, with the child actor who's playing 'baby Ryan', the child of her character Mia, sister of Diesel's Dom Toretto.

However, Brewster's appearance in the movie will throw up some potential plot issues.

Mia was the often concerned love interest for Brian, played by the late Paul Walker, with whom he rode off into the sunset to settle down with at the end of Fast & Furious 7.

Brewster's character then sat out Fast & Furious 8, but with her now back in the fold, it would seem that Brian's absence from the movie will have to be broached in some manner.

This could in turn mean that the character is being killed off, but we'll have to wait and see about how that is dealt with, though fans were generally pleased with how Walker's character was written out sensitively, so it could be a fine line to walk.

Justin Lin is back in the director's chair, having helmed four previous F&F movies, and will direct the 10th movie too.

Tyrese Gibson, who plays jokester Roman Pearce in the Fast series, also confirmed that he is due to start shooting on Fast 9 today after wrapping on Spider-Man spin-off Morbius.

“Now I’m headed to set 12:30pm call time #Fast9 God is truly the greatest.!!!!!!!!!!”, Gibson shared on Instagram.

Fast & Furious 9, also starring Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ludacris, and new recruit John Cena is due for release on 22 May, 2020.

Fast & Furious 10 then arrives in April, 2021.
