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.

Per a March 2022 report from Deadline, Grant Gustin recently signed with the talent agency ICM for representation.

Now, this doesn't necessarily signal that Grant is done playing the CW's speedy red-suited superhero, but Grant's ICM deal has resulted in speculation that he's looking for other projects to work on.
