CW’s popular superhero television series The Flash was launched in 2014 and is one of the viewers’ favorite ever since. Currently, in season 6, the show is still popular amongst its viewers.
Production Brought To A Standstill
Due to the spread of the Corona Virus, the whole world has come to standstill. The pandemic has also affected the shooting of Season 6 of The Flash. The production had to be stopped completely. The show that usually airs 22 to 23 episodes per season had to cut down on the number of episodes in season 6.
The star of the show, The Flash played by Grant Gustin was in talks with the producers of the show for extension of his contract beyond Season 7. The current situation due to COVID 19 has left the talks in limbo.
Grant Gustin’s Interview
In a recent interview, Grant Gustin expressed his desire to continue playing The Flash even beyond season 7. He said “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.”
