Universal and DreamWorks Animation have released the Fast & Furious: Spy Racers Season 2, which finds the team heading to Rio de Janeiro. The second season of the series will debut on Netflix October 9.
Inspired by Universal’s blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise, teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom 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.
In Fast & Furious: Spy Racers Season 2, Tony and his crew embark on their first international mission to Brazil. Once in Rio, they discover that Ms. Nowhere’s latest recruit and formidable fellow racer, Layla Gray, is missing in action during an undercover mission.
Unwilling to leave family behind, Tony and the Spy Racers don secret identities to find Layla, but end up uncovering a sinister plot that keeps them guessing at every turn.
“Going into season two we really wanted to see the team progress and take on new challenges. We meet a new villain this season that I guarantee is unlike anyone we’ve ever battled in the Fast universe,” said executive producer Tim Hedrick.
“Look forward to more of the nonstop crazy fun that these Spy Racers are known for.”
Tim Hedrick and Bret Haaland serve as executive producers and showrunners. Vin Diesel, Neal H. Moritz and Chris Morgan also executive produce and serve as producers on the live-action Fast & Furious franchise.

Over the course of nine films that have stoked passion in an ever-expanding audience and have earned nearly $6 billion at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures’ record-smashing, homegrown Fast & Furious saga has become the studio’s most-profitable and longest-running franchise.
On the heels of The Fate of the Furious, which debuted in theaters as the biggest global opening of all time, the blockbuster franchise has expanded to a multitude of offerings – from toys and video games to an all-new animated series and successfully launched spin-off franchise.
