The lightning racing towards an epic conclusion on CW after announcing, the series will end with season 9. The lightning Season 9 will debut in 2023 and consists of 13 episodes.
Whispering about The lightning ends began in January then Grant Gustin signed a one-year deal that would have limited his participation to 15 episodes for the ninth season. The CW announced in May that Season 9 will start in the middle of the season instead of at the beginning of the CW’s schedule. The 13-episode midseason launch places The lightning final weeks ahead of the planned cinema premiere of Warner Bros‘ The lightning. Flash’s other original cast members, Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker, returning for the final season.
“Nine seasons! Nine years of saving Central City as you took audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humor and spectacle. And now Barry Allen has reached the starting gate for his final run.” The lightning executive producer/showrunner Eric Wallace said. “So many amazing people have given their talents, time and love to bring this wonderful show to life every week. So as we get ready to honor the show’s incredible legacy with our exciting final chapter, I want to say thank you to our phenomenal cast, writers, producers and crew over the years who have helped make The lightning such an unforgettable experience for audiences around the world. “
Speaking about his journey as Barry Allen/The Flash at the end of season 7, Gustin said: “Look, I may never have a job that cool again that so many people actually tune in to see, so I’m not going to take that for granted,” he told ET. “Seven [seasons] is actually for most of the cast, but I think it would be great if we can continue after that.”
With The CW sunsetting yet another of its superhero series, it feels like the end of an era. I’m sure Gustin is grateful, but he’s looking forward to moving forward in his career. Nine seasons is an epic run for any TV series, I’m convinced The lightning will go out with a bang.
