CW’s The Flash has been a mainstay series for the network ever since it’s premiere in 2014. Now, after years of exciting (and up and down) seasons, the show led by Grant Gustin as the title character is rumored to be concluding soon.
The Hollywood Reporter recently released a report stating that Jesse L. Martin, one of the core members of the cast of The Flash, has moved away from the series and signed on to an upcoming NBC pilot as a lead character, signaling that his time on the show might come to an end soon. In this article, THR add that conversations are afoot to conclude The Flash after next season in what could be a smaller episode count than previous outings.
If this is the case, the series would end not too long before Warner Bros.’ Flash centered film is released in June of next year. At one point, the studio were keen to have the speedster on TV and the big screen, but production issues on the cinematic outing has meant that Grant Gustin has been the primary face of the character for the last several years.
Of course, Grant Gustin met the film version of The Flash in Crisis on Infinite Earths, a major moment signaling the rise of the multiverse in DC projects across multiple different mediums. Because of this, there remains a possibility that Gustin appears in The Flash movie next year.
