Several familiar faces are making a return to “The Flash” for the upcoming ninth and final season.
David Ramsey will reprise his role of John Diggle, Keiynan Lonsdale is back as Wally West/Kid Flash and Sendhil Ramamurthy will guest star as Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork.
David Ramsey’s Diggle helped launch the Arrow-verse, appearing in the “Arrow” pilot and having guest starred on almost every show – often multiple times. Here Diggle will return to protect Central City alongside Team Flash.
Executive producer Erice Wallace says they created a “special and heartfelt story” for the return of Lonsdale’s Wally West and shows off a side of the character not seen before.
Finally, Ramamurthy’s sixth season early villain is back with his return setting in motion one of the Flash’s “wildest and most emotional adventures yet”. He will appear in the ninth episode of the season and likely kicks off the final story for Team Flash.
They join former “The 100” alum Richard Harmon who takes on the Captain Boomerang role, “Supergirl” star Nicole Maines reprising her Nia Nal/Dreamer role, Javicia Leslie reprising her Ryan Wilder/Batwoman role, and Andy Mientus back as Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper.
Red Death and Murmur will also appear as characters but it’s unclear who will play them this time out. Shooting on the final season is set to wrap on March 6th, with the finale to air sometime in May.
The ninth season will consist of thirteen episodes broken into two storyline arcs. “The Flash” final season returns on February 8th.
