The season started with the abovementioned Armageddon, a five-episode crossover event that saw Barry (Grant Gustin) facing the possibility that his actions would bring about the end of the world. The well-paced story arc featured appearances from fan-favorite characters from other Arrowverse series, including Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, and Black Lightning.
Without giving away too many details, the rest of the season mostly saw Team Flash trying to cure Iris’ (Candice Patton) time sickness, while also dealing with threats like Deathstorm and the team’s most devastating loss yet.

Will there be a season 9 of The Flash?

When is The Flash season 9 coming out?
The Flash season 9 doesn’t have an exact release date yet. But the show won’t return until 2023, premiering at midseason rather this fall.
What will happen in The Flash season 9?
Plot details on The Flash season 9 are being kept under wraps, but showrunner Eric Wallace said that the objective for the next season is to “up the romance.”
“One of the goals for next year is to have maximum fun and up the romance,” Wallace said in an interview with ComicBook.com in June. “That’s something I’m looking forward to. In season 9, the crisis is gone, and Barry and Iris can be back together full time, so bring on the sexy.”
Wallace went on to tease that season 9 will have a romantic comedy vibe. “I do love a good rom-com,” he said. “People think I just love horror movies. Literally, my second favorite genre is romantic comedies. So, who knows? Maybe we’ll get a little bit of that next year. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.”
Is The Flash season 9 going to be the final season?
When asked by TVLine if The Flash season 9 will be the show’s swan song, Wallace said: “I still do not know. I do not know. I hope it’s not. I’ve got plenty of plans. The first three seasons [I was showrunner], 6, 7, and 8, really is [sic] one big omnibus. And that whole story is now done. I’m now formulating a new, shorter, two-season plan, for Seasons 9 and 10, so I sure hope I get to tell that story because I know where I’m driving to.”
