The CW has given us one of its defining shows of the past decade with The Flash, but all good things must come to an end. As the network’s cancelation streak continues, this superhero show is the latest to get the boot and it will end its run after nine seasons.

The Flash executive producer/showrunner Eric Wallace confirmed the show’s cancelation in an official statement, saying that Barry Allen has reached the starting gate for his last race after nine years of taking audiences on an emotional journey full of heart, humor, and spectacle.

He also took a moment to thank the phenomenal cast, writers, producers, and crew, who “have given their talents, time, and love to bring this wonderful show to life each week.”

The cancelation of The Flash is pretty heartbreaking for the fans of the show, but it doesn’t really come as a shocker. It’s the latest in a long line of projects that The CW canceled this year, as the network faces financial insecurity and programming changes.

The final season of The Flash will see Grant Gustin return to the titular role after signing a one-year contract a few months ago. It will feature a total of 13 episodes, and it’s set to premiere in the first half of 2023.
