The Flash season five came to an end last night (Tuesday, May 14) on The CW in the US. The finale will air in the UK next Thursday (May, 23) on Sky One and NOW TV. Following the season five finale, fans are wondering if The Flash will return for another season. Read on to find out more about the future of The Flash.
Will there be another series of The Flash?
The Flash has been confirmed for another series by The CW.
An official release date has not been confirmed for The Flash season six at the time this article is written.
However, the previous five seasons of The Flash have premiered in early October and have aired every Tuesday since then.
The Flash season six is, therefore, expected to air on Tuesday, October 1 or October 8, 2019.
The Flash airs in the UK on Sky One and NOW TV and is a few episodes behind the US, so season six is expected to arrive in late October/early November in the UK.
The fifth season had over two million viewers per episode, which is less than the season four ratings.
However, season five was highly praised by critics and viewers in comparison to season four, which would have factored in the renewal.
