Stephen Amell Officially Set To Appear In The Flash Season 9
You have been asking for it and you are finally getting it – The CW and Warner Bros. TV announced today that Arrow star Stephen Amell is officially set to appear in The Flash season 9 as Oliver Queen. Amell will join his fellow Arrowverse stars Keiynan Lonsdale (Kid Flash,) David Ramsey (John Diggle) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Bloodwork) in episode 9, which will be directed by The Flash’s own Danielle Panabaker.
This will mark Amell’s first appearance in the franchise ever since Arrow season 8 and Crisis on Infinite Earths. Showrunner Eric Wallace said the following about Amell’s Arrowverse return, which was teased in the Arrowverse tie-in comic book, Earth-Prime:
“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.” The result 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.”
After defeating the Reverse Flash once and for all, the ninth season of THE FLASH picks up one week later following their epic battle, and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) are reconnecting and growing closer than ever before. But when a deadly group of Rogues descend on Central City led by a powerful new threat, The Flash and his team—Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Meta-Empath Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), the light-powered meta Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton), brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight), and reformed cryogenics thief Mark Blaine (Jon Cor)—must once again defy impossible odds to save the day. But as The Rogues are defeated, a deadly new adversary rises to challenge Barry Allen’s heroic legacy. And in their greatest battle yet, Barry and Team Flash will be pushed to their limits, in order to save Central City one last time.
Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Superman & Lois,” “Arrow,” “You”), Eric Wallace (“Teen Wolf,” “Eureka”) and Sarah Schechter (“You,” “The Flight Attendant,” “Riverdale”), Sam Chalsen (“Sleepy Hollow”), and Jonathan Butler (“Bella and the Bulldogs”).
