Han Lue debuted in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and, despite that film being one of the lesser-seen entries into the franchise, Sung Kang's performance of the street racer won over the fandom and quickly helped him become a fan favorite. Sadly, Fast and Furious 6 saw the character killed by Jason Statham's Shaw, which rattled a section of the fan base. In the seven years since the character's on-screen death, fans have been demanding #JusticeForHan across social media, hoping to see the character return to glory, with the trailer for F9 confirming that return and subsequently elating those who have been hoping for his comeback for years.
Part of what made fans so upset about the way the franchise handled the character is that, despite Shaw killing Han in cold blood, the murderer was ultimately welcomed into the group years later after proving his worth. Shaw was even given his own spinoff film with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Hobbs, with some fans at least appreciating that he was fractured from the core group of characters. While fans have yet to learn how Han has returned, to say they're excited to see Kang back in the series would be a bit of an understatement.
Scroll down to see what fans are saying about Han's return and see F9 when it lands in theaters on May 22nd.
