The idea of a "Fast & Furious" spin-off featuring Hobbs and Shaw first emerged during filming of "The Fate of the Furious," after producers and studios execs took note of the comedic chemistry between the two throughout their scenes together. Plans to actually develop the spin-off were informally green-lit towards the end of filming, and they were later revealed to be the reason behind the much-discussed animosity that emerged between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in the final week of production - which resulted in Diesel reportedly canceling some of Johnson's scenes (which was within his purview as one of the movie's executive producers) and not showing up for filming at all on at least one day of production, leaving hundreds of cast and crew sitting idle. After news of the spin-off became public, co-stars Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) and Tyrese Gibson (Roman) publicly criticized it for damaging the F&F "family" as well as pushing back the release of the series' ninth installment by at least a year. As of February 2019, Johnson has stated he will "probably not" return for "Fast & Furious 9" but would consider it for the 10th in the series.

Dwayne Johnson was very supportive of exploring the idea of Hobbs's family, allowing for many Polynesians to be cast as his relatives. This was a definite nod to Vin Diesel's constant references to "family" in the previous Fast & Furious movies.

Screenwriter Chris Morgan said that a line spoken by Deckard to Hattie before ETEON's assault in Samoa, "There's things I've done that I have to make amends for" was deliberately written in response to the viral Internet fan campaign called "Justice for Han". The campaign alludes to him killing Han at the end of Fast and Furious 6.

Dwayne Johnson stated that Keanu Reeves was in talks to play the director of terrorist organization ETEON, if things had worked out: "What we did at the end was we left the ominous voice faceless. So, for some time, it was going to be a bit of a John Wick, all disguised. But then we left it there with a few people in mind. Originally, Keanu was the goal. We were talking, and it just didn't feel right creatively. He and I talked, and I totally got it. And it wound up being the best thing, so now we leave that open for the future."

The film's trailer indicates that Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) is a former MI6 agent. This is a significant alteration from his original depiction in the "Fast & Furious" franchise (in "Furious 7") as a villain who originally served in the British special forces before his abilities as an asset became a liability. Retconning him as an MI6 operative puts him on a footing more akin to a James Bond-style spy, as most field operatives come from a special forces background and his status as a MI6 operative would not have been made common knowledge.
