Grant Gustin recently revealed that he wants to keep on playing Barry Allen on The Flash well beyond Season 7, which is great news.
Gustin has been incredible as Barry Allen since the very beginning of the show.
I remember first seeing him as Allen in Arrow and thinking that he was great.
He’s since gone on to make the role his own and I can’t imagine anyone else playing the role.
His version of Barry and The Flash is everything I wanted from the role, and I really don’t think the show could carry on without him.
It was revealed that his contract on the show was coming to an end after The Flash Season 7.
He’s since come out and revealed that he wants to keep on playing The Flash well beyond Season 7.
Grant Gustin will keep on playing The Flash beyond Season 7
Gustin revealed this whilst he was being interviewed with Entertainment Tonight.
“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 explained.
“I was talking to Michael Rosenbaum the other day and to go as many seasons as they did with Smallville, like, nobody gets to do that!
“That’s always been something I thought would be really cool to accomplish.”
He added: “It’s not just my decision, obviously, but it has a lot to do with the viewers, and the network, and I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
“But I can definitely see myself doing more than just the one [season] that I have left on this current contract.
“Seven [seasons] is it for most of the cast actually, but I think it would be great if we can continue after that,” Gustin finished.
