The Flash Season 8 To Be The Show’s Final Season

UPDATE: We’ve been informed that Grant Gustin is in talks with The CW for The Flash Season 9.

The information we received for this particular article was incorrect.

Therefore, we are issuing a retraction.

It’s been revealed to us by sources close to the project that The Flash Season 8 will be the show’s finale season.

This is a bittersweet moment because the show’s been on the air for six seasons already.

However, it’ll be sad to say goodbye to the show.

Season 7 of The Flash is currently airing on The CW and it was revealed that it had been renewed for an eighth season.

However, according to our sources, this will be the show’s final season.

A source close to the project informed us that, “The Flash season 8 will be the show’s last”.

However, they did go on to add that “it won’t be the end of The CW-verse”.

This seems to be the way they refer to the Arrowverse internally at The CW.

The good news is that this allows the show’s writers to come up with a satisfactory ending to The Flash.

The Flash has been one of The CW’s most successful shows and has really been the Arrowverse’s shining light.

It’s easily the best DC Comics show they ever made.

However, the series’ ratings have been dwindling of late, and it seems as though The CW has opted to call it a day on The Flash.

That said, eight seasons is not to be sniffed at.

It’s very rare that shows carry on for so long.

What will be interesting is to see what The CW does next, and where the Arrowverse can go from here.

It does seem as though they are winding the Arrowverse down.

It seems as though they are ending most of the shows in the Arrowverse.

Although, that hasn’t been officially announced yet.

The CW did renew many of their DC Comics shows

The CW recently renewed a bunch of its DC Comics series.

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow was renewed for Season 7.

Batwoman got a Season 3 (amazingly), and they’ve just started their Superman & Lois show.

However, it was revealed recently that Supergirl will come to an end after Season 6.

This was when The CW announced that they would be making an eighth season of The Flash.

However, the news that Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh are leaving the show as series regulars seemed to be the nail in the show’s coffin.

They will, reportedly, be returning to guest star in certain episodes.

What I’ve been told is that this will be for the series finale and they’ll also appear in a handful of other episodes in Season 8.

It was also revealed that The Flash Season 8 will kick off with a five-episode crossover.

This was announced by CEO Mark Pedowitz who revealed that Season 8 of The Flash will begin with five special event episodes featuring heroes from across the Arrowverse.

This could be a way to introduce old and new characters into the Arrowverse and might be how The CW thinks they can carry on making these DC Comics shows.

We’ll have to wait and see.

    They need to fire the show runner and all the writers. Hire back some decent people to give the show a decent sent off. This season was a total strange mess. Horrible beyond belief.

Have your say...
