The Flash, the longest-running show in the Arrowverse, will be back for Season 9. The CW said this in March. But first, in the Season 8 finale on June 29, “Negative, Part Two,” the team will come together to help The Flash (Grant Gustin) when he needs them the most. After all the recent discoveries, like Tom Cavanagh’s Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse-Flash) shedding harsh light on Iris’s horrible death from Time Sickness, Flash showrunner Eric Wallace told TVLine that the next episode will answer several important questions.
“You’ll hear it in the words of the people who are putting it all together, the masterminds behind everything that’s been going on in Season 8,” he said. “Our “Big Bads,” the Negative Forces (Christian Magby, Ennis Esmer, and Sara Garcia), will tell you why they’re doing what they’re doing and why they’re doing it now, which is cool.
The Flash Season 9 Release Date
Bustle says that CW hasn’t said when Season 9 of The Flash will start, but there are rumors that it could start in the middle of 2023.
If this happens, it will be different from the eight games that came before it, which were all released in the fall. So, the first show could happen in January 2023.
The Cast of The Flash Season 9 Cast
The fact that Gustin agreed to play Barry Allen/The Flash again in early 2022 made it possible to renew Season 9. On June 28, TVLine said that Candice Patton will play the fearless reporter Iris West-Allen again for Season 9. The actor had said before that it wasn’t clear what would happen to her on the show.
During an Instagram AMA in early April, she told a fan that she wasn’t sure if she would come back and was taking things “one date at a time,” according to TVLine. Later that month, she posted a video with the words “THAT’S A WRAP ON IRIS WEST-ALLEN,” which made people wonder if her role on the show would continue.
In April, Jesse L. Martin confirmed that after eight seasons as Detective Joe West, he is leaving The Flash as a series regular to star in the NBC pilot The Irrational. Danielle Panabaker, who plays Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, could be back for The Flash Season 8. So could Danielle Nicolet, who plays Cecile Horton, Kayla Compton, who plays Allegra Garcia, and Brandon McKnight, who plays Chester P. Runn, among others.
The Plotline of the Flash Season 9
The plot of Season 9 is still a secret, but Wallace has explained why John Diggle’s (David Ramsey) Green Lantern-style journey ended before the next chapter. What’s the short version? The ninth season of The Flash wasn’t picked up until after the final script was done, because they wanted to give the character a good send-off.
He told TVLine, “We thought, ‘Oh my gosh, we have to do this because maybe no one else will!'” “I talked to David Ramsey myself and told him, ‘I’d like to stop this,’ and he agreed. I told him about our plans, and he thought they were great.”
Wallace also said that Diggle’s refusal of his “cosmic” invitation “served a greater purpose” by referring to the comic book storyline “Blackest Night.” As of now, he doesn’t know if Season 9 of The Flash will be the last, so the plot may not get to that point.
He said, “As a comic book fan, I wanted to plant the seeds for Blackest Night, and that Diggle moment helped me do that.” I don’t know if we’ll ever get there, though.
Fans say that Bloodwork, aka Dr. Ramsey Rosso (Sendhil Ramamurthy), who was last seen in Season 6, will be back in Season 9 to cause trouble. In the DC comic book series Earth-Prime, which is set in the Arrowverse, Bloodwork is said to have broken out of jail, and the story will continue in Season 9 of The Flash.
In the last scene of “Negative, Part 2,” the last episode of The Flash’s eighth season, Iris West-Allen and Barry Allen talked about how the Negative Speed Force was going to choose a new avatar. This conversation happened over pictures of a science lab on June 29, 2049, where a mysterious blue crystal started to glow as if it were lit from the inside. Fans of The Flash comics think this could be a sign that Cobalt Blue will be on The Flash season 9.
Plan About Season 10 of The Flash
The Flash’s tenth season hasn’t been decided yet. The president of The CW, Mark Pedowitz, told THR in a conference call in May 2022 that he was open to the idea of a fourth season.
Because most of the original cast has left and Danielle Panabaker’s return is uncertain, it seems likely that The Flash season 9 will be the last season of the show and the end of the Earth-Prime adventures on TV.
