Eric Wallace stated that he still has to wait for the ninth season to start filming to have any definitive position.
In an interview with Deadline, The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace was asked if the ninth season will be the show’s last, and stated that he still doesn’t have an answer.
He said he would love to be able to answer that, but he won’t know for a while, when the recordings start.
“It’s the question I get asked every five minutes. I wish I could answer; I wonder. I hope to know when we start filming in the fall . I think that’s a fair statement. So stay tuned,” he said.
In the interview, he was also asked about the possibility of producing spin -offs, but he also did not give a direct answer and threw the public the ‘responsibility’ of asking for spin-offs to be made.
“Now, having said that, obviously… We’ve introduced a lot of characters in the last few seasons… I would say to the audience, if you have some characters that we’ve introduced in the last few years that you want to see in a spin-off, you should write for The CW. But I’m going to focus on the Flash now before I start focusing on anything else,” said Wallace.
He also revealed that he already knows what the end of the ninth season is.
“Yeah, I know what the season 9 finale is already. We have several great evils in the coming year. We will continue our graphic novel format. I don’t know how many episodes I have, frankly, so if I get enough episodes, we’ll have three graphic novels like last year.”
“If I receive less, then I will act accordingly. But there will be at least two graphic novels with at least two separate great evils, one of which is a blast from the past.”
