The final season of CW’s hit show The Flash is upon us as we finally know when the ninth season will premiere. Fans of the Arrowverse series have been patiently waiting to see how the show will end. The long-running show has been watched by audiences ranging from die-hard comic book fans to those with a passing knowledge of the DC superhero.
The Flash is set to premiere its final season Wednesday, February 8, 2023, at 8/7c. This timeslot will play ahead of the midseason premiere of CW’s other hit show, Kung Fu. We also know that The Flash‘s final season will consist of 13 episodes instead of the 24-episode run that audiences have grown accustomed to with the show.
In addition to that news, the network has released the official final season synopsis to those eager to find what’s in store for the characters.
Check it out:
“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.

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.”

DC Films‘ The CW’s restructuring might warrant a revisit to the show in a reboot or revamped version sometime in the future. However, only time will tell.
