In a recent report from Deadline, it was confirmed that prior rumors were true. The upcoming ninth season would be the final one for The Flash and would be 13 episodes long when it airs. Rumors of season nine being the last began popping up earlier this year, when series star Grant Gustin signed a one-year deal to stay on the series. According to the report, cast members Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker are also set to return for the ninth season.

“Nine seasons! Nine years of saving Central City while taking audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humor, and spectacle. And now Barry Allen has reached the starting gate for his last race,” The Flash executive producer/showrunner Eric Wallace said in a statement. “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.“

Assuming the upcoming Warner Bros. film based on the comic book character stays at its June 23, 2023 release, The Flash‘s ninth season will come to an end just a few weeks before the Ezra Miller-led film is set to release. Still, it’s worth noting that it’s currently unclear just what the status of that film is after having been delayed a series of times.

The Flash series currently stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West.
