The Greg Berlanti-created series about the DC superhero has been renewed for a ninth season, becoming the longest-running program on the American network channel.
While the broadcast of season 8 of The Flash has resumed since March 9 in the United States, the CW has renewed its fantasy series for a ninth round of episodes according to the site Deadline, silencing the rumors according to which the season in course could mark the end of the adventures of the DC superhero. A season 9 which allows The Flash to dethrone Arrow as the longest series ever broadcast on the network channel, the latter having ended in 2020 after 8 seasons.

“We are coming to the end of a three-year plan that I have put in place for seasons 6, 7 and 8,” showrunner Eric Wallace told Entertainment Weekly last March, before the renewal of The Flash is acted by the CW. “But for the real ending, I had to write two, because I don't know what the future holds (...) I'm hopeful that there will be a season 9, but I have to when even making sure that all of the character arcs will be wrapped up depending on the path the series takes. I also have to come up with something that can tease a potential new season."
However, the interpreter of Barry Allen, Grant Gustin, having only renewed his contract on the series for 15 episodes, it will be necessary to expect that this new season will be shorter than the previous ones - and may mark the end of The Flash's journey for good, after the return of an iconic character to the series in season 8.
In France, the first six seasons of The Flash are available on Netflix, while seasons 7 and 8 are still unpublished on the territory.
