The Flash Season 9 Premiere Date & Synopsis Released
After a long waiting period (and several false rumors, both debunked by The Flash Podcast,) The CW has finally set the premiere date for The Flash season 9! The network announced today that the final season will premiere on Wednesday, February 8, at 8/7c and The CW also provided a juicy synopsis about the new season, which you can read below!
It’s unclear when the first trailer will be released for the final season, but at least now The CW has given fans a definitive date, with the show coming back in almost two months from now. Production is currently halfway through on The Flash’s swan-song season as the final season will have only 13 episodes, making it the shortest season of the series of all time.
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”).
Brad Schwartz, who is the new President of Entertainment at The CW, also said the following about The Flash’s final season, as he celebrated the show’s massive success for The CW:
“THE FLASH will be remembered as one of the greatest shows in the history of The CW, and everyone involved in its excellent nine-season run should be very proud,” said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment, The CW Network. “The team has delivered an epic final season, filled with plenty of twists, guest stars and surprises that will delight every fan. Now is the time to catch-up and enjoy this fantastic final ride alongside the fastest man alive.”
