For a franchise that’s based on gas-guzzling muscle cars, The Fast and the Furious sure has gotten good mileage over the years. It’s survived some horrible reviews, cast turnover, and even the death of its original leading man to make it to its eighth feature, with two more sequels already greenlit. With The Fate of the Furious opening next week, we asked Dwayne Johnson why he thinks the franchise has beaten the odds, and his answer was clear: It’s all because of the fans.

The Fate of the Furious pulls into theaters on April 14. And if you’re really planning ahead, the two sequels already have tentative release dates set: April 19, 2019 and April 2, 2021.
