Flash went through several rapids (both pretty good and pretty bad), alien invasions, and the universe ends in crises through his lifetime. Not to think that the current eighth season would be the last of CW’s Scarlet Speedster, you’re wrong because the series returns in the ninth season.
Grant Gustin’s contract has been finalized and he will return as Arrowverse’s Scarlet Speedster for at least another year. Since his new contract only allowed 15 episodes, the ninth season is the shortest so far — COVID has limited the usual seasons from 22 episodes to 19 episodes for the sixth season and 18 for seasons seven and eight. There was a multi-year contract on the table, but Gustin turned down the offer. With the ninth season, Flash is now the longest-running Arrowverse series, surpassing its older series Arrow, which ended its eight-season term in 2020.
It could also be the last season of the series, especially considering that the CW as we know it could be a thing of the past. Surprisingly, the show also managed to do the impossible and survive the elimination just before Ezre Miller a version of Barry Allen ran onto the big screen. (Remember that when Arrow was involved, he had a version of the Suicide Squad that was mostly completely down clear the way for the cinematic version after the series she did a pretty good job setting them up.)
If this is the last season of the series, which the CW has yet to confirm, it will be interesting to see how it all ends. As it is, they have already touched on almost every major part of the character’s myths, from various Forces recent comics to the character’s family, as adult versions of Nora and Bart Allen are now in the present for the eighth season. New episodes begin on March 9, so we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for the CW’s golden child.
