The Flash Team On The End
In a statement released on Monday, executive producer and showrunner for The Flash, Eric Wallace, has spoken about the show’s end. He said that after nine years of saving Central City while taking audiences through an emotional journey that has been full of heart, humor, and spectacle, Barry Allen is now at the starting gate for his last race. He thanked all the wonderful people who had helped bring this show to life and said he’s excited to honor the show’s legacy with an exciting final chapter.
News that The Flash has come to an end became the topic when The CW announced their renewals in March. in fact, the show has been one of the lucky few after others like Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow got cancelled. At the time, lead stars Gustin and Candice Patton signed new deals, and the team was able to tweak the ending of the eighth season, which was believed to have been the final one.
What’s left for The CW?
After many shows were headed to the chopping block, The CW, which is currently standing on its last legs, is left with All American and its spinoff, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Superman & Lois, Walker and rookies Gotham Knights, Walker: Independence and Supernatural prequel The Winchesters.
The Flash season 13 is looking for a 2023 release.
