Netflix has announced the cast for its upcoming “Fast & Furious” series, “Spy Racers,” with “Teen Wolf” alum Tyler Posey set to headline the animated kids show.
Posey will voice Tony Toretto, who follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom (played by Vin Diesel in the film series) when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organization bent on world domination.
He’ll be joined in the voice cast by Camille Ramsey, Luke Youngblood, Charlet Chung, Jorge Diaz and Manish Dayal. Diesel’s real-life daughter, Similce Diesel, will also lend her voice to the series in a guest role.
The eight-episode series, which hails from DreamWorks Animation, will debut on Netflix on Dec. 26.
Tim Hedrick (DreamWorks’ “Voltron Legendary Defender”) and Bret Haaland (“All Hail King Julien”) will serve as executive producers and showrunners on the series. Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan, who all produce the live-action multi-billion dollar Universal franchise, are also executive producers.
