Filming of the seventh installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Furious 7, recently wrapped up and its first trailer released, but already there’s talk of the franchise being expanded with even more movies. Recently, rumors emerged that director Justin Lin, who worked on movies three through six, could end up returning to the franchise to film its final installments.

Now, a Universal Studios executive has confirmed that more Fast and the Furious movies might be filmed. During a recent roundtable interview held by The Hollywood Reporter, Universal boss Donna Langley said at least three more movies were possible when asked about the future of the franchise without the late Paul Walker, who played the character Brian O'Conner.

“We think there's at least three more,” Langley said. “Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story but there are many other great characters, and it's also an opportunity to introduce new characters.”

Langley went on to reveal that she thought the franchise was still growing and that the potential for any future movies hinges on what happens with Furious 7. However, she also said that the studio is cautious of potential “fatigue” of the franchise.

While fans are likely to salivate at the thought of more movies, the comment about introducing new characters is somewhat worrisome; let’s just hope we don’t have another Tokyo Drift coming down the line.

Furious 7 opens in theaters April 3, 2015.
