THE FLASH: Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker & Jesse L. Martin Set To Return For Season 8; New Promo & Stills

It looks like The Flash will be bringing back most of its family next season, as Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, and Candice Patton have all closed deals to return for season eight.

While Team Flash got a little smaller this season, it looks like most of the family will be back next year, as Deadline is reporting that original cast members Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Candice Patton (Iris West-Allen), and Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow/Frost) have all closed deals to return as series regulars for the already announced eighth season of The Flash.

They join series lead Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), who already had a deal in place that ran eight seasons. But with his contract set to expire at the end of next season, it's fair to wonder whether season eight could be the Scarlet Speedster's swan song, although that's just speculation for now. 

With Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells/Reverse-Flash) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon/Mecha-Vibe) both exiting this season, it's probably a safe bet that Danielle Nicolet (Cecile Horton), Kayla Compton (Allegra Garcia), and Brandon McKnight (Chester P. Runk) will return as series regulars next season as well. 

Check out the promo for episode sixteen of The Flash season seven, titled "P.O.W.," below:

DAVID RAMSEY GUEST STARS - John Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) arrives in Central City with a weapon to help Barry (Grant Gustin) stop the Godspeed War. Meanwhile, Allegra (Kayla Compton) and Ultraviolet's (guest star Alexa Baraja Plante) new bond is put to the ultimate test, while Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Kristin Kramer (guest star Carmen Moore) are hunted by a former colleague of hers. Marcus Stokes directed the episode written by Kristen Kim & Dan Fisk (#716). Original airdate 7/6/2021
