So, will there be a Season 9 of 'The Flash'?

Alas, DC fans. The CW dropped major details about the future of Central City on March 22. An official press release confirms that along with Superman & Lois and Riverdale, The Flash will return for the 2022-2023 season.

In the release, CW Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz said the network is looking forward to "utilizing some of our most-watched series for us to build on for next year and beyond on the network."

Viewers can rest easy knowing that the series has been renewed. However, a previous report by The Hollywood Reporter teased that the "end" of the series "is near." And it looks like Season 9 may be the show's last.
