In this case, according to the official Instagram for the series, Universal Pictures has decided to delay the movie by a full year to April of 2021.

"We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga," he wrote. "That's why it's especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film.

"F9": Vin Diesel Teases "a Big Surprise" That "Is so Awesome"

Now that more movies like F9 are actively being delayed we can only assume it's a matter of time for movies Mulan, Black Widow or even Wonder Woman 1984. The 2020 box office is going to take a massive hit and the repercussions of it are going to be felt for years. While shutting down and moving movies is the right thing to do that isn't going to stop people from losing jobs and studios from laying people off. It's going to be a very tough year for the entertainment industry.

Summary: Cypher enlists the help of Jakob, Dom's younger brother to take revenge on Dom and his team.

F9, directed by Justin Lin, stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. It will be released on April 2, 2021.
