We've been saying goodbye to a lot of shows this past year, a lot of them ending prematurely, and at times, abruptly. Now, it's time for another show to begin its final season: The Flash. As one of the flagship Arrowverse characters, having Barry Allen making his first appearance on Arrow nearly a decade ago, we are now reaching the conclusion of that story. This final season promises a lot, with special appearances by other Arrowverse alumni, such as Javicia Leslie and Nicole Maines. But, this show had nine years to tell its story, and it's bowing out with a reminscient tone, while still promising the high stakes we've seen throughout all these years. To give you an idea of what we can expect, check out the trailer below:
A few days ago, we also got the confirmation that The Flash's ninth season will premiere on February 8th, also seen in the trailer. The synopsis for the season reads:
Season 9 picks up one week following Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash's epic battle against the Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh) in the season 8 finale where they defeated him once and for all. Now, Barry and Iris (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), Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton), Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight), and Mark Blaine (Jon Cor) — work together to defeat the new threat only to discover a deadly new adversary rising to challenge Barry's heroic legacy. In their greatest battle yet, Barry and Team Flash will be pushed to their limits in order to save Central City one last time.
We are definitely curious to see where this last season will take us, and we're hopeful that other Arrowverse characters will get to show up and get some additional closure for their characters and respective shows.
