Think all the way back to the year 2001. Snapple still came in glass bottles. Corona was not yet usurped by hard seltzer as the easygoing drink of the summer. Rapper Ja Rule was "Livin' It Up " on the Billboard charts — and on movie screens. And The Fast and the Furious, a little Point Break homage about street-racing thieves and the adrenaline-seeking FBI agent who goes undercover to catch them, beat the odds to be one of the highest-grossing movies of the summer.

Who could've known that movie would spawn a series that, more than 20 years later, would be the second-longest-running continuous, non-rebooted, not-recast franchise? (It's second only to the Mission: Impossible movies, which has been around longer but has fewer entries.) And that those lowly street-racers would go on to race around the Vatican, drive through the skyscrapers of the Middle East and zoom through the favelas of Rio de Janiero, picking up mega-watt movie stars to join their family along the way?

If you want to trace how the movies went from fun diversions for car enthusiasts to super-special-effect-heavy blockbusters, here's how and where to watch all the Fast and the Furious movies in order. The initial list is in order of release date, with streaming links where available. Then it's followed by a list of the events in chronological order because, like some of the race tracks they've been on, the series takes some twists, turns and double-backs. As for where to stream them, there's no one service that hosts them all, and most of them are not streaming for free, but it's good to have Peacock and HBO Max if you don't want to pay a rental fee for all of them.

Then, once you've seen Fast X, you can re-watch the Spider-Man movies in order, the Transformers movies in order, the Indiana Jones movies in order and the Marvel MCU movies in order, since those franchises all have new entries coming out this year too.

The Fast and the Furious (2001)

The Fast and the Furious franchise eventually transcends its humble origins as a turn-of-the-century Point Break re-do centered around the relationship between Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker). But here, it starts small: Director Rob Cohen, in his first and only work with the franchise, leads a diverse cast through a fast-paced movie about cops and criminals on the hunt for thrills. And while the bleached hair and Ja Rule-heavy soundtrack may seem dated today, you can still see why it became a hit — the seeds for a successful franchise are in there.

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

The Fast and the Furious franchise is so largely synonymous with its star, Vin Diesel, it's hard to remember that he's mostly absent from this one. Instead, Boyz n the Hood director John Singleton takes up the reins and adds Ludacris and Tyrese to the cast in a story that centers on the character of Brian and his life post-law enforcement.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

Remember the character of Sean, played by Lucas Black? What about Twinkie, played by Bow Wow? This movie — the first of a run of four directed by Better Luck Tomorrow's Justin Lin — moves the action to Asia and focuses mostly on characters that are only tangentially related to the rest of the franchise, so it's the one that's the least connected to the others. The true star is the drifting, a.k.a the way the cars skid around tight corners. The other best thing to come out of this one is Sung Kang's character Han — sometimes referred to as Han Seoul-Oh, get it? — who does return in other movies.

Fast & Furious (2009)

After a few movies that headed in different directions, this one is back to basics: Both Dom and Brian are in it, Brian is back in with the FBI and Dom and his crew are back to doing crimes. And while it feels good just to have the old band together, the action sequences start to get more ambitious here, too — as you can see in the famous scene where they hijack an oil tanker together — which is a precursor for what's to come.

Fast Five (2011)

With the crew firmly in place, Fast Five is free to up the ante when it comes to heists and stunts, culminating in an action sequence on the streets of Rio de Janeiro that's up there with the best in the whole series. In this one, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson jumps in as agent Luke Hobbs, adding another huge name to the series' set of returning stars.

Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

In this one, Michelle Rodriguez's Letty has fallen in with a bad crowd — namely Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), a London-based bad guy with a dangerous device that he's ready to sell to the highest bidder. It's up to the team again to stop Shaw in his tracks and hopefully save Letty in the process. How? Mostly through bananas driving stunts, but they also have to team up with Gisele, a former Mossad agent played by Gal Gadot. (And for eagle-eyed fans, who's the flag girl who starts the race in London? It's Rita Ora!)

Furious 7 (2015)

This is the only Fast and Furious movie directed by franchise guru James Wan, who has also had success directing long-running series like Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, along with two Aquaman movies. He takes the series to Abu Dhabi, where Shaw 2.0 — Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham — is out for revenge against Dom's family. Dom won't let helicopters, drones or even luxury high-rise buildings stand in his way as he seeks to protect the ones he loves. Sadly, this one was marred by a behind-the-scenes tragedy when Paul Walker died in a single-vehicle car accident. His brothers were used as stand-ins to complete the filming of the movie. In a touching tribute, his character of Brian was not killed in the movie to explain Walker's future absences — he's just presumably living out his life peacefully off-screen.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

You'd think after seven movies that they wouldn't be able to add any more big-name stars to the already-full roster, but you'd be wrong. The Fate of the Furious — get it, "fate," or "F8," after the eighth movie — gets Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron as the new big bad, Cipher. Cipher blackmails Dom into stealing dangerous weapons on her behalf, making him the family's antagonist for once.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

This spin-off movie sees two bad-guys-turned-good teaming up while still maintaining a rivalry. Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw have to combine forces to track down a pilfered super-virus. Watching this one, you kind of get the sense that Johnson and Statham are contractually obligated to have an equal number of zingers in the script, but there's an element of mismatched buddy comedy that works, and there are plenty of action scenes worthy of a movie presented by The Fast and the Furious.

F9: The Fast Saga (2021)

Yes, the Fast and Furious franchise is big enough to have not one but two wrestler-turned-actors among its cast. This time, John Cena shows up as Dom's foil — and someone from his past, who may be involved with Cipher. Meanwhile: Tej and Roman fly their cars into outer space!

Fast X (2023)

Jason Momoa plays a villain that can only be described as extra — though he has good reason to get revenge on Dom and his family. This one sees a new director, though one who has car cred: Louis Leterrier, who previously directed Statham through The Transporter franchise. Leterrier is meant to wind-down the series with a two-part finale, though Diesel has hinted that maybe it'll be a closing trilogy.
