Gal Gadot is feeling nostalgic and celebrating at the same time.
The actress, 38, makes her return to the Fast and the Furious franchise for the first time since 2013’s Fast and Furious 6, in Fast X, which hit theaters on Friday.
She posted two snaps to her Instagram account captioning the post: ‘Missed my Fast family! I’m overwhelmed with excitement.’
‘To my fans, your continuous love and support fuels this journey. Here’s to honoring the legacy, the fans and the #FastFamily that we’ve built together,’ she concluded.
In the first snap, the Wonder Woman star stares dreamily off into the distance with her brunette locks blowing in the breeze.

Gadot plays Gisele Yashar in the franchise, though, as far as everyone knew, her character was killed off in the 2013 installment.
The mom of three appeared in Fast & Furious in 2009 and again in 2011’s Fast Five before being killed off in the sixth movie.
Gadot’s character joined the Fast family when Dominic Toretta infiltrated the dangerous Braga Cartel in Mexico while he was investigating the death of Letty.
He was sure the cartel had something to do with her death and met Gisele, who appeared to be a loyal member of the drug cartel.
However, it turned out she was on the side of the good guys and a former Mossad agent.
And Gal’s character isn’t the only Fast family member to rise from the grave. Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty was brought back from the dead in Fast and Furious and Gal’s character’s onscreen romance partner Han Lu returned from beyond the grave in F9.
And now, in Fast X, Gal’s Gisele shows up at the end of the movie, just before the credits roll.
Gisele was Gadot’s first major American film role. Director Justin Lin cast her due to her military experience and tasked her with performing her own stunts.

Gisele’s resurrection guarantees there will be another film in the long running franchise, which Vin Diesel confirmed. The 11th film will be the final Fast film.
Fast X director Louis Leterrier told Entertainment Weekly: ‘We showed the movie to Gal, told her about our plan for the next one, and she loved the movie and said, ‘I want to be part of it. I want to come back.”
And Leterrier assured the outlet that the story behind Gisele’s return will be ‘very, very different.’
‘We needed to seed it into the fabric of the franchise,’ he explained. ‘You’ll see. As we’re heading towards the end, you’ll see how every chapter meant something as a whole, every villain meant something, every disappearance meant something, the returns meant something else, and how it all was part of this huge chess game played by various people.’
