Has The Flash been renewed for season 10 on The CW?

Barry Allen is about to make his final premiere-episode debut on The CW this week and we confirm if The Flash season 10 has been renewed, mark the season 9 release date, and reveal how many episodes are in this run.

The Flash series will not be a part of the new DCU, helmed by James Gunn and Peter Safran. Instead, Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie, releasing on June 16, 2023, will act as a reset point for the DC live-action universe.

Developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Geoff Johns for The CW and based on the DC Comics character of the same name, The Flash follows the fastest man alive, Barry Allen, fighting villains and teaming up with allies from the Arrowverse, starring Grant Gustin as the titular superhero.

Has The Flash been renewed?

No, The Flash season 10 has not been renewed by The CW as season 9 will be the show’s final run.

The long-running series was likely canceled after WarnerMedia’s merger with Discovery and it’s also likely that the premise didn’t fit in with Gunn and Safran’s 10-year plan for the DCU.

In an interview with The Nerds of Color, showrunner Eric Wallace confirmed that season 10 would have showcased a ‘Blackest Night’ storyline if the series had been green-lit:

“We were gonna do all kinds of things. I can tell you we were going to tackle the ‘Forever War’ storyline, which is something that I [came] up [with] for Season 10. That was going to be a season opener, and we’ve been hinting at it… I wanted to do a full-on crossover with as many characters as possible. The ‘Blackest Night’ storyline that we started hinting at last year with Diggle and the box. So yeah, it kind of bums me out that we’re not going to do that.”

How many episodes are in season 9?
