‘The Flash’ To End With 9th Season

Barry, you can stop running now. The CW has announced The Flash will end with the upcoming 9th Season of the superhero drama.

The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, aka The Flash, the fastest man alive, as he spends his time, aided by his dedicated “Team Flash”, saving Central City from various metahuman threats and potentially catastrophic events. The series also stars Candace Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Kayla Compton as Allegra Garcia, Brandon McKnight as Chester P. Runk and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West.

“Nine seasons! Nine years of saving Central City while taking audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humour, and spectacle. And now Barry Allen has reached the starting gate for his last race,” commented executive producer/showrunner Eric Wallace. “So many amazing people have given their talents, time, and love to bring this wonderful show to life each week. So, as we get ready to honour the show’s incredible legacy with our exciting final chapter, I want to say thank you to our phenomenal cast, writers, producers, and crew over the years who helped make The Flash such an unforgettable experience for audiences around the world.”

Along with announcing the show was ending, The CW also revealed that the final season will be reduced to 13 episodes. In addition, it will be moved to “mid-season” (aka Jan-March 2023) rather than airing as part of the “Fall 2022” CW line-up. ‘The Flash’ ending really brings the whole “Arrowverse” to a close, following the cancellations earlier this year of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, ‘Batwoman’ and ‘Naomi’. The network does still have ‘Superman & Lois’ and ‘Stargirl’ airing, but they are very standalone from the other series, along with ‘Gotham Knights’ set to premiere in the “Fall”.

Rumours of ‘The Flash’ coming to an end had been circling for a while after Gustin opted only to sign up for one more season when his contract renewal came up. Of the other cast, both Candace Patton and Danielle Panabaker are confirmed as returning. Jesse L. Martin will also be back, however, possibly in a reduced capacity as the actor is also starring in a pilot for NBC. He is signed on for at least 5 episodes either way, but whether he does more will depend on if his pilot gets picked up.

Based on the characters from DC, ‘The Flash’ comes from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Executive producers are Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, alongside Eric Wallace.

The Flash‘ airs on Sky Max in the UK.
