A week after the official confirmation that The Flash series will end with its next season, leading star Grant Gustin has finally broken his silence regarding the long-running superhero series’ upcoming conclusion. Gustin took to Instagram to share a heartfelt video message where he expresses his immense gratitude towards the fans. Despite the “bittersweet” ending, Gustin is excited about having the opportunity to finish his character’s arc on their own terms.
“This week we announced that season nine of The Flash will be the final season, which is bittersweet,” Gustin said. “It’s been an incredible nearly ten years of playing this character and getting to be a part of this show with an amazing cast and crew, and so much love from you guys — from the fans, people who love the show. It’s the only reason we’ve got to do this as long as we have. And I’m very excited to do this one final time, finish on our terms, and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it as much as I can. I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting the show and allowing us to go as long as we have and I could not be more honored to be associated with this character probably for the rest of my life and career.”
