The Flash star claims the announcement of the end date is "bittersweet." ...

The Flash, the second show in the Arrowverse, was announced to come to an end with its upcoming ninth season, which will run for a shorter than usual 13 episodes.

Grant Gustin, the show's lead man, posted a video on his Instagram, reacting to the news of the cancellation. He said: "It's been an incredible nearly 10 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, the fans, and the people who love the show."

"That's the sole reason we've been able to stay as long as we have." I'm looking forward to doing this one more time and finish on our terms.

"I'll cherish every minute of it as much as I can." I'm immensely grateful to be associated with this character for the rest of my life and career. It's a real honor.

"Thank you once again for assisting us. I hope you enjoy this last season. I know that I'm going to enjoy it."

"Run it back once more, brother," wrote the Arrowverse's Superman, Tyler Hoechlin. "Thank you and everyone who's given so much time to make those nine seasons a reality. Bravo and enjoy the ride this year."

As Arrow's eighth season comes to an end, The Flash becomes the longest-running show in the DC TV franchise.

Despite being filmed and mostly edited to the tune of $100 million dollars, the DC film Batgirl was canceled.

The Flash will be back for its final season on The CW in the United States, and Sky Max in the United Kingdom.
