The Flash Season 5 Release Date Is Announced

The Flash on The CW

Clap your hands and breathe a sigh of relief since The Flash is coming back to The CW for its fifth season. The network announced on April 2, 2018, that they had renewed The Flash for another round. The CW has opted to pick up all their primetime series for their respective next seasons. We frankly have been waiting for this decision, as the superhero series has showcased the impressive statistics in the current installment. Now it’s official! However, we still suggest you read our forecast because we were right in our assumptions.

Many favorable factors pointed out the further decision on renewal. Let’s take a look at some of them. First of all, the fourth season premiere has garnered enough target audience, 2.84 million viewers with a 1.1/4 rating/share (P18-49). This figure looked lower versus the same of Season 3 (3.17 million viewers). Nonetheless, the viewership was acceptable for The CW.

Secondly, the fourth season of The Flash has received critical acclaim, according to the statistics by Rotten Tomatoes. The season has a score of 7.36/10 with a 100% approval rating from critics. However, it’s worth noting that the fourth installment of The Flash has received an average response from the target audience, 3.7/5/66% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 6.8/10 on Metacritic, respectively. On IMDb, the show’s score remains very high, 8,0/10 > 236,500 votes.

As a result, we were almost sure that The Flash would be back for Season 5. It was only a matter of time when The CW decides to announce the renewal. But, in any case, we have been waiting for the official news.

What Is The Flash About?

The story focuses on Barry Allen, a costumed superhero known as “The Flash” able to move at superhuman speed. Barry’s father was unfairly accused in his mother’s death. As a result, Barry devoted his entire life to the investigation of this case. The clues brought him to the S.T.A.R. Labs. Due to an explosion of a particle accelerator, Barry was struck by lightning. As a result, he spent nine months in a coma. While awakening, Barry discovers an ability to move at incredible speed, which is impossible to any human. This ability allows him to turn into a superhero and come closer to the mystery of his mother’s death.

The Flash Season 5 Release Date

As mentioned above, The CW has decided to renew The Flash for a fifth season. According to The CW fall schedule, The Flash will return for Season 5 on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 on The CW.
