THE FLASH SEASON 9 TO BE FINAL, ARROWVERSE MORE OR LESS COMING TO AN END
As a spinoff of Arrow, which was based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, The Flash was launched on the CW network. Together with Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl, the two series gave birth to the Arrowverse, a smaller DC universe exclusively for television. Gustin, who plays The Flash’s principal character, was originally said to have inked a new one year deal to end his tenure as “the fastest man alive.” It was said at the time that the contract required him to produce 15 episodes for season 9, but it now just appears to have been lowered to 13. Supergirl put her cape away just last year, while its sibling programme Arrow hung up its cape after season 8 in 2020.The Arrowverse, while fantastic in the beginning, had problems with continuity and overall direction. Over time, the CGI deteriorated to the point where even CW began to turn its attention away from DC Comics titles. Stargirl, Superman & Lois, and the impending Gotham Knights series — independent from the video game — are the three comic book shows now airing on the network; none of them are connected to the Arrowverse. According to Deadline, Candice Patton (Iris West), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), and Jesse L Martin (Joe West) will all return for The Flash season 9; the latter actor has committed to up to five episodes. The ninth season will premiere in January 2023. The Flash is broadcast on Amazon Prime Video in India.
