That was fast. The CW has given The Flash TV show an early seventh season renewal with more than half of season six yet to come. Season seven will air as part of the 2020-21 television season.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, Tom Cavanagh, and Jesse L. Martin. The action-adventure series centers on police scientist Barry Allen (Gustin) who develops super speed after a dark-matter lightning strike. Behind his mask, Barry uses his powers to protect the people of Central City from many an evil force as The Flash. In season six, Barry has thrown himself into his work following the loss of his future daughter, Team Flash members are dealing with issues of their own, and genius Dr. Ramsey Rosso (Sendhil Ramamurthy) inadvertently gives birth to a new villain named Bloodwork.
The sixth season of The Flash is averaging a 0.51 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.38 million viewers. Compared to season five, that’s down by 17% and 19%, respectively. The show continues to be The CW’s highest-rated series in both categories.
Season six of The Flash resumes on February 4th. Season seven will air as part of the 2020-21 television season which kicks off in Fall 2020.
