The Flash Will End With Season 9 At The CW

The final season will run for 13 episodes, and arrive in 2023.


DC show The Flash will end with its upcoming Season 9 at The CW, which is set to begin production in September. The final season will be 13 episodes and air sometime in 2023.

"Nine seasons! Nine years of saving Central City while taking audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humor, and spectacle," said series executive producer and showrunner Eric Wallace in a release (via Variety). "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."

Grant Gustin stars as the Flash in the series, with the cast in Season 8 also including Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton, and Brandon McKnight. When it wraps with Season 9, the show will rank as one of the longest-running CW shows.

"Listen, I may never have a job this cool again, that this many people actually tune in to watch, so I’m not gonna take it for granted." Gustin said in an interview at the end of Season 7 (via Deadline).

The Flash movie, starring Ezra Miller, is planned to arrive at theaters on June 23, 2023. The film is also notable for including Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman--for the first time in over 30 years since 1992's Batman Returns.
