In an emotional video message, Grant Gustin, who has played Barry Allen in the Arrowverse since 2013, reacts to The Flash’s conclusion after season 9.
The Flash season 9 will be the final season of the show, and Grant Gustin, who has played Barry Allen in the Arrowverse since 2013, answers in an emotional video statement. The year 2022 has been bittersweet for the Arrowverse television series on The CW.
Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, and the upcoming DC TV series Naomi have all been cancelled by The CW due to the significant changes occurring behind the scenes as the network changes ownership. The lone DC drama will be Stargirl season 3 on The CW for the 2022–2023 television season.
The Flash, which debuted in October 2014 and concluded its eighth season with episode 171, became the longest-running show in the Arowverse. Although The Flash will return for season 9, The CW announced the official decision to end it this week.
The ninth season of The Flash, which is expected to debut in 2023, will have a 13-episode schedule and wrap up the adventures of Barry Allen and Team Flash, played by Grant Gustin.
Even though it will be painful to see Gustin’s run as The Flash end next year, the actor will leave behind one of the most significant marks on the Arrowverse and the DC universe.
Gustin will follow in the footsteps of actors like Tom Welling from Smallville in having a lengthy history of portraying renowned DC characters.
The Flash season 9 doesn’t begin production until September, thus no information on what to expect has yet been released. When The Flash’s final episode airs, a significant chapter in the Arrowverse will have been closed.
The Flash will be the final Earth-Prime series to run on, with Superman & Lois now being Arrowverse-adjacent due to having place on another Earth.
