In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, F9 star Vin Diesel all but confirmed that Cardi B’s character, Leysa, will return for the franchise’s 10th entry.

“We are very much excited to evolve her character and to expand it to the finale,” Diesel said. “She made it just in time. She came in Fast 9 just in time.” The film’s director, Justin Lin, also sat down for an interview with ET, and raved about how easy it was to integrate Cardi into the Fast & Furious universe.

“She showed up, and within a minute, she’s part of the family, right?” Lin said. “And I love how when I got together with her, her and Vin were talking about the character because she’s actually really embedded into the overall universe. She’s been around for a long time and this is just the first time we are seeing her, so I’m really excited to explore that character of her.”
