‘The Flash’ Star Grant Gustin On His Future As The DC Superhero

The Flash star Grant Gustin talked about the show’s future and how much longer he would be willing to play the DC superhero.

Arrow was the first of the new wave of DC superhero shows on The CW, which recently came to an end after eight seasons. The Flash followed suit as the series nears the end of its sixth season. Grant Gustin recently revealed that there have been talks for the series to continue with seasons eight and nine. However, talks for Gustin to return have been put on hold due to the coronavirus.

Arrow star Stephen Amell hasn’t been shy about not returning to the Arrowverse after eight seasons of his own series. Some have made the joke online that by the time we get Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie, the Grant Gustin series will be over. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Grant Gustin talked about how long he would be willing to play the DC superhero as the show approaches season seven:

“Listen, I may never have a job this cool again, that this many people actually tune in to watch, so I’m not gonna take it for granted. I was talking to Michael Rosenbaum the other day and to go as many seasons as they did with Smallville, like, nobody gets to do that! That’s always been something I thought would be really cool to accomplish. It’s not just my decision, obviously, but it has a lot to do with the viewers, and the network, and I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. But I can definitely see myself doing more than just the one [season] that I have left on this current contract. Seven [seasons] is it for most of the cast actually, but I think it would be great if we can continue after that.”
