Appearing at the Television Critics Association panel for the second season of ABC’s “Secrets and Lies,” actress Jordana Brewster was asked about the status of “Furious 8”.
Brewster is in an interesting position in that with the death of Paul Walker having essentially led to his character Brian O’Conner retiring from the series, Brewster’s character of O’Conner’s wife Mia Toretto might also have to exit.
Speaking about the possibility of her return and continuing on with the series, she tells Slashfilm:
“There hasn’t been discussion but I can kind of see it go either way. Mia is with Brian but on the other hand she’s still Dom’s sister. I don’t know. I’m not sure… The best part was Paul and now it’s the fans. I think the fans have a hunger for it which is amazing, but it’ll be different for sure.”
“Furious 8” is currently targeting an April 14th 2017 release date.
