The CW has made it official and announced that The Flash will be coming to an end with its 13-episode ninth season.

Speculation had been strong that season 9 would be the last for the Scarlet Speedster, but now The CW has made that news official. With the season being held for a midseason debut, that means it should wrap up its run a few weeks ahead of the The Flash film debut on June 23, 2023. There has been no indication that there will be any connection between the series finale and the film.

The CW has been attempting to give series a decent send-off as opposed to just unceremoniously ending them. Unfortunately, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman both fell victim to unexpected endings.

Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, and Danielle Panabaker are the last remaining original cast members and will continue with the show through to its conclusion.

No exact debut date has been announced for The Flash season 9 as of yet.
