Flash is one of the most popular TV series in the entire Arrowverse Universe. The show has 7 seasons so far; each one of them explores different stories which keep the fans hooked to their screens. The 8th installment of Flash is scheduled for its release in November. But the fandom is worried whether the showrunners will cancel the series after the upcoming season or will they continue with it? So now the question arises are there any chances of Flash Season 10 happening?
A number of Arrowverse shows have been canceled due to poor ratings but at the same time, a few shows got renewed till the 10th season! Hence fans are both scared and hopeful. Recently the Scarlet Speedster’s series made it to the 10th season and if we compare the show’s ratings to Flash then the latter has very high chances of achieving the same milestone.
But good ratings are not the only factor that decides the renewal of shows. The continuation of the story also plays an important part in the running of the shows. So, this means that Flash Season 10’s fate lies in the hands of the writers; it is completely up to them if they are willing to continue with the story or not.
The Flash Season 10 has high chances of making!
Although the showrunner Eric Wallace has not confirmed the 10th season, we are pretty confident that it is going to happen. How? Because of the main actors’ contract which goes beyond the 8th season!
In the latest installment of Flash two main actors, Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes departed the show because their contract ended. But the 4 other main actors; Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, and Danielle Panabaker got their contract renewed. And the good news is that this contract does not end with the 8th season. Now, this does not necessarily mean that the show will continue till the 10th season but the 9th season is inevitable.
Moreover, Wallace himself is interested in continuing with the show. The reason obviously is its great viewership. In an interview he said:
“I feel this show could run easily for at least several more seasons, and possibly beyond. Because I feel like every season, we, as a writing staff, have to decide between all the wonderful stories we want to tell, versus how many episodes we actually have to tell them. We have so much more that we’d love to show the audience and give to them, as a thank you for coming along on this ride with us, but we just can’t get to it. That’s why I say, there’s many more seasons worth of stories to tell, at least from our creative perspective.”
Does the show have the potential to continue till the 10th season?
Yes! Flash still has to explore some parts which can be easily stretched into 3 more seasons. Barry has to pass on the torch to the next generation. Now it depends on the writers if they want to sum up this scenario in one season or in 3 seasons.
Moreover, the show’s long-running depends on the actors’ schedule. If they have other projects to prioritize then don’t expect the show to go on until the 10th season. Gustin who plays Barry had some interesting views on the continuation of the show:
“Listen, I may never have a job this cool again, that many people actually tune in to watch, so I’m not gonna take it for granted. I was talking to Michael Rosenbaum the other day and to go as many seasons as they did with Smallville, like, nobody gets to do that! That’s always been something I thought would be really cool to accomplish. It’s not just my decision, obviously, but it has a lot to do with the viewers, and the network, and I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. But I can definitely see myself doing more than just the one [season] that I have left on this current contract. Seven [seasons] is it for most of the cast actually, but I think it would be great if we can continue after that.”
So, Flash Season 10 is not confirmed yet but it is not canceled either. Now we just have to remain patient and hope for the best!
