The Fast and Furious will head to NBC's Peacock service

The new streaming service will eventually be home to at least a few of the cult-classic films.

It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.

With Fast and Furious 9 delayed until April 2021 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, fans are likely missing out on their over-the-top action mixed with a dash of cars. Sleep easy, friends, because NBC's new streaming service Peacock will house at least part of the Fast and Furious franchise.

Peacock will launch on July 15, and eventually, we'll receive at least a handful of the Fast and Furious films. Specifically, Fast & Furious and Fast 5 will eventually head to the streaming service. Hopefully, we'll see the earlier films hit Peacock, too. The early films focus more on street racing, while later films focus more on explosions and saving the world. If you want to know where to start, CNET's already ranked the FATF films with a humorous take.

And while the films truly are outlandish even these days, they still hold a special place in the hearts of car geeks everywhere -- especially the early ones. It's safe to say the first two movies helped catapult import tuner culture into the mainstream back at the start of the 21st century. The cars were often the stars just as much as the actors and actresses themselves.

The films will give fans something to watch before Fast 9 hits theaters next year.
