The CW Sets The Flash Season 6 Release Date

The Flash

Clap your hands since The CW announced The Flash Season 6 release date. The superhero series is coming back for another season on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 8:00-9:00pm, on The CW. The confirmation has just appeared on the show's official Twitter page.

No doubt, you have been waiting for the new season of The Flash, which is promising to be exciting. "Everything's about to change...again," this is how the official motto of Season 6 sounds. Unfortunately, no official synopsis for the upcoming season of The Flash has been revealed as of yet.

It's worth mentioning that the viewing audience of The Flash has drastically dropped compared to the show's debut. The current, fifth season premiere of The Flash has garnered over two million viewers (2.08) with a key demo/share 0.8/3, among adults (P18-49). The series, thereby, has lost about a third of the target audience (-27.04%) during the recent season premiere, and we regard such a decrease as a bad signal, what regards to the future of The Flash. The subsequent episodes of Season 5 have drawn less than two million viewers each, unless S5E12, which drew 2.039 million viewers.

On the other hand, also worth noting that The Flash Season 5 has been praised by both critics and viewers more than Season 4, that has eventually played in favor of renewal, in our opinion. The fifth installment of The Flash holds a score of 8.11/10 and a 94% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the current season at 3.3/5 and have given a 61% approval rating, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Altogether, The CW's management was satisfied with the current round of The Flash, and therefore the network opted to include The Flash Season 6 in the network's upcoming lineup. However, as mentioned above, the viewing audience of the series is gradually decreasing, which, in turn, points out the possible cancellation of The Flash. But still, we don't think it happens soon. Most likely, The Flash will be remaining on The CW's programming slate for much more seasons.
