Warner Brothers and ViacomCBS are shopping around the idea of selling The CW. What this means for all the DCTV properties is uncertain.

Stephen Amell to join The Flash's Ninth Season

The man who started it all is coming back for the final season of The Flash on The CW!

The CW has officially announced today that Stephen Amell, who starred as Oliver Queen in Arrow and its respective spin-offs, will return to guest star in the ninth episode of the final season. He'll be joining previously announced guest stars such as David Ramsey, Sendhil Ramamurthy, and Keiynan Lonsdale. It's yet to be confirmed whether or not he'll be portraying Oliver Queen once again, or the Spectre.

In regards to the return of Amell, executive producer of The Flash, Eric Wallace, has stated:

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.
