The Flash is losing another one of its regulars. Jesse L. Martin is departing The CW series this season as a series regular but, he will still appear in a few episodes next season. The series was recently picked up for a ninth season by The CW.
Martin leaves Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, and Danielle Panabaker as the only other remaining original cast members of The Flash. Gustin has already signed a new contract for the ninth season and Patton and Panabaker are currently in talks to return.
Martin’s next project is already lined up. He has landed a starring role in a new NBC drama pilot – The Irrational. He is also a producer on the potential series.
Deadline revealed the following about the plot of the pilot:
“Written by Arika Mittman, The Irrational is based on bestselling author Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational.” The show centers on Alec Baker (Martin), a world-renowned professor of behavioral psychology with a unique insight into human nature who lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, corporations and law enforcement. However, he meets his match in a female domestic terror suspect who turns his world upside down.”
What do you think? Are you sad to hear that Martin is leaving The Flash? Do you want to see his new series land on NBC?
I still watch the Flash and still find it entertaining. I will watch to the very end. I miss some of the cast but still watch it.
This show became tediously convoluted and obnoxious around Season 4. I think I made it to Season 5 before the episodes piling up on my DVR told me it was time to bail.
it’s a pity that he didn’t leave much much earlier. he is better than this
Okay I am in thanks
Joe really hasn’t been around much this season, so not really all that surprised he’s leaving for real. The show’s lost some serious momentum without Cisco and some variation of the Wells character around though.
We stopped watching The Flash when it became “The Iris-West Allen & the flash” show.
Jesse L. Martin’s getting out at the right time.
right time was 5 years ago
I’m surprised he has stayed this long. He has a lot of big credits to his resume, and The Flash is probably the least important.
