The Flash will end after the upcoming ninth season on the CW. The 13- episode ninth season of The Flash will be the final season for the Arrowverse series. The Flash’s ninth season, which will consist of a condensed 13 episodes, will be its final one, the CW revealed on Monday. One of the network’s most popular shows’ conclusion will run as part of its midseason schedule in 2023. The final season’s filming will start the following month.
The Arrowverse series, The Flash, co-created by executive producer Greg Berlanti, has been bringing a variety of heroes and villains from the DC Universe to life on The CW since 2012. The CW is still receiving DC TV content for the 2022–2023 TV season, despite 2022 becoming a bit of a contentious year for the network.
The Flash season 9 was one of the few DC TV series that was renewed for a second season in 2022, despite the cancellations of Naomi, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman earlier this year. There have been rumours that The Flash’s ninth or tenth season will be its last because it has been the longest-running Arrowverse drama on The CW. The CW and Warner Bros. TV have made a decision after waiting for a while. The ninth and last season of The Flash, which will consist of a 13-episode order, will debut in 2023, according to The Wrap.
Eric Wallace, the show’s creator, said the following in this statement, “Nine seasons! Nine years of saving Central City while taking audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humor, and spectacle. And now Barry Allen has reached the starting gate for his last race. 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 honor 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.”
The ending of The Flash season 9 is obviously sad, yet the show as a whole can still be proud of this season. The Flash will continue to hold the record for The CW’s longest-running Arrowverse drama after surpassing Arrow’s 170-episode run this season. Given The CW’s extensive modifications to its DC TV programming, it wouldn’t be unexpected if an attempt were made to create a The Flash spinoff to maintain the franchise on the channel.
