Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker & Jesse Martin To Return For ‘The Flash’ Season 8

Some key members of The Flash are coming back!

Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, and Jesse Martin have all signed deals to return for The Flash‘s eighth season of the series led by Grant Gustin.

The Flash has been running on The CW since 2014, and several stars have come and gone throughout the years. Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes notably left the DC series in its seventh season, but it appears some members of The Flash will be sticking around.

Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, and Jesse Martin all had their contracts up after this season, but Deadline reports they will be back for The Flash season eight. They are set to reunite with Grant Gustin, who was already signed on for the upcoming season.

Here is the synopsis for season seven of The Flash: 

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.
