The ninth and final season of The Flash premiered on The CW on February 8, 2023, and will conclude on May 24, 2023. Production for a ninth season was confirmed on February 3, 2022, before it was officially announced on March 22, 2022.
The season 9 premiere aired on TV screens this week, setting the stage for its final adventure. It was a fun episode, one that finally placed the spotlight on Barry and Iris West-Allen, giving the core couple more screen-time together than they have had in years. It also threw a fun time-loop into the mix, introduced new villains, and even teased us with some references to other Arrowverse characters.
DC Comics fans were likely thrilled to see The Red Death appear in the season 9 premiere of The Flash. Appearing before Owen Mercer, a.k.a. the new Captain Boomerang (Richard Harmon), the evil speedster made their mission clear: Render The Flash alone without any allies to help him.
