The Flash Season 9 Likely Happening At The CW

No Comments

It seems that Barry Allen isn’t done with the Arrowvese just yet. As reported by Deadline, The Flash star Grant Gustin is finalizing a deal t return to the network for one more year. This strongly indicates that the show will indeed be picked up for a ninth season. While it remains to be firmed it, this would more than likely be the show’s final run on the network. Even so, this is a pretty big surprise, especially since many assumed the current season 8 was leading to a conclusion. 


Per the report, Gustin would be getting a healthy pay raise for his participation. It is believed that he is currently making more than $200 thousand per episode. Beyond that, it’s said that Gustin is capping this at 15 episodes. That also leads us down the road of thinking this could be the show’s last dance. 


If that is the case, The Flash will become the longest-running show in the Arrowverse. Arrow, which kicked off The CW’s small screen DC multiverse, ran for eight seasons. The show is currently in the midst of its eighth season. It kicked off last year with the five-part Armageddon event and is currently on hiatus until March. 


Here is the synopsis for Armageddon Part 5. 


“THE EXCITING CONCLUSION TO THE FIVE PART ARMAGEDDON EVENT BRINGS THE RETURN OF MIA QUEEN – The conclusion to Armageddon presents an opportunity for The Flash (Grant Gustin) to end his lifelong battle with Reverse Flash (guest star Tom Cavanagh) for good, but the payoff could be too much for Barry and team to handle. Meanwhile, Mia Queen (guest star Katherine McNamara) drops in from the future looking to save a lost loved one, and she won’t let anything stand in her way.” 


The Flash has aired more than 150 episodes since premiering in 2014. In the years since it debuted, the likes of Supergirl, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, Superman & Lois, Batwoman, Stargirl, and Naomi have graced the network. But things are changing. Not only have some of the shows wrapped up, but we recently got word that The CW is up for sale. Should that sale go through, the content on the network will surely change dramatically. That being the case, it may be time to start winding down the Arrowverse overall. More than likely, all future DC shows would head to HBO Max, much like Peacemaker. 


The Flash season 8 returns to The CW on March 9. 


What do you think? Are you excited about the idea of a ninth season? Or do you think it would be better to wrap things up? Join in on the conversation over on Facebook or Twitter!
