‘The Flash’ was renewed several months ago for a season eight, but the continuity of several of its protagonists was in the air. The return of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen is assured, but those who will not be the next batch of episodes will be Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdés.
An emptiness that could be even greater
The truth is that Canavagh’s departure was more evident, since the character of Harrison wells He has not appeared since the third episode of the seventh season. Yes we will see you again before it comes to an end, but it is not confirmed when it will be time to say goodbye. In the case of Valdés and Cisco ramone It will be in the final episode of the seventh season when he says goodbye as a series regular.
This does not mean that later they cannot make some specific appearances in ‘The Flash’, but it does mean that the Arrowverse series is going to lose two of the actors who had been fixed in its cast since the first episode. What a bigger void they will have to fillAnd that’s without taking into account that there may be more, since an agreement has not yet been closed with Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Jesse L. Martin to remain on board, although the study is working on it.
Eric Wallace, showrunner of the series, has made the following statement after the departure of Cavanagh and Valdés was made official: “Tom and Carlos have been an integral part of our series for seven seasons and will be greatly missed. They are both very talented actors who created beloved characters that fans and audiences across the planet came to love. That is why we are happy to leave the door open for appearances in the future.“.
