Stephen Amell to reprise role of Arrow in The Flash’s final season

Stephen Amell will once again be returning to the role of Oliver Queen for the final season of The Flash.

The CW announced on Wednesday that Amell will be appearing in the ninth episode of the upcoming season of The Flash. The episode, directed by the series’ Danielle Panabaker, will also see the returns of Keiynan Lonsdale (as Wally West/Kid Flash), David Ramsey (John Diggle/Spartan), and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Dr. Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork).

The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace said of the news, “As soon as our final season was announced, we knew we wanted Stephen to come back and reprise his iconic role as Oliver Queen. After all, it was Oliver who originally launched Barry Allen on his heroic path. That’s why everyone on Team Flash felt so strongly that it was important to create a full-circle moment with Oliver’s return in the final season of The Flash.”

Wallace went on to say the story is “an epic-yet-emotional episode we hope Arrowverse fans will enjoy. It’s all to say ‘thank you’ to everyone for watching and supporting our show throughout nine wonderful years. We absolutely cannot wait for everyone to see Grant and Stephen saving the world together again. And yes, there will be thrills, chills and tears.”

The Flash season 9 will debut on Feb. 8, 2023.
