Developed by Greg Berlanti, The Flash is a superhero television series that airs on The CW. It has also been streaming on Amazon Prime Video since 2021.
It was initially envisioned as a backdoor pilot, but the positive response towards Grant Gustin following his appearance on Arrow led the executives to develop a complete pilot to use more budget and explore more about Barry Allen’s world. The series opened to positive reviews from critics and audiences and was also a recipient of the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama in 2014. Following the response to eight seasons in the last few years, it has been renewed for a ninth season in January 2022.
So, when is the ninth season releasing? Who is there in the lead roles? What is the plot? Keep reading further to know more details.
The Flash Plot and Cast
Season 9 plot details are being kept under wraps for now, with Wallace revealing the reason John Diggle’s Green Lantern-style arc ended ahead of the next chapter. The short version? The Flash wasn’t renewed for Season 9 until after the final script was written, and they wanted to ensure the character got a proper sendoff. “We were thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, we have to do this because maybe no one will get a chance to!’” he told TVLine. “I talked to David myself, and told him, ‘I’d like to give this some closure,’ and he was all in favor of it. And when I told him what we had planned, he thought it sounded fantastic.”
Wallace further hinted that Diggle’s turning down his “cosmic” invitation “served a larger purpose” by further teasing a Blackest Night storyline from the comic books. As of now, he’s unsure if Season 9 will be The Flash’s last though, so the storyline still might not get there. “I’m a comic book nerd and I wanted to plant some Blackest Night seeds, and that Diggle moment helped me do that,” he shared. “But I don’t know if we’ll ever get to it.”
Fans are also predicting that the villainous Bloodwork, aka. Dr. Ramsey Rosso — who last appeared during Season 6 — will return to wreak havoc in Season 9. DC’s Arrow verse-set comic book series Earth-Prime reportedly included Bloodwork escaping his imprisonment, with a promise that the story was “To be continued in Season 9 of The Flash.”
The CW is yet to announce which actors are returning, but we can expect Danielle Panabaker, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton, and Brandon McKnight, among others.
The Flash Season 9 Release Date
The Flash Season 8 premiered on November 16, 2021, and was renewed for a ninth season in March 2022. Reports say that filming is scheduled to begin in June 2022 and it is scheduled to premier on February 8, 2023.
The number of episodes for the new season is not confirmed since it has been different in the previous eight seasons. Further details related to Season 9 are expected to be revealed in the next few days.
