As the debut of the ninth and final season of The Flash approaches, it seems that the man who began the whole Arrowverse all those years ago will be coming back. It was confirmed that Stephen Amell will reprise his role as Oliver Queen for the final season of The Flash.
“As soon as our final season was announced, we knew we wanted Stephen to come back and reprise his iconic role as Oliver Queen,” said executive producer Eric Wallace in a statement. “After all, it was Oliver who originally launched Barry Allen on his heroic path. That’s why everyone on Team Flash felt so strongly that it was important to create a full-circle moment with Oliver’s return in the final season of The Flash. The result is an epic-yet-emotional episode we hope Arrowverse fans will enjoy.” Wallace continued,” It’s all to say ‘thank you’ to everyone for watching and supporting our show throughout nine wonderful years. We absolutely cannot wait for everyone to see Grant [Gustin] and Stephen saving the world together again. And yes, there will be thrills, chills, and tears.” Stephen Amell took to Twitter to confirm his return to The Flash.
