THE FLASH Showrunner On The Impromptu Season 6 Finale, Season 7 Plans, And Future Changes To The Show

The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace has addressed the unexpected finale of The CW series, and weighs in on how the show could change moving forward as a result on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic...

The Flash was forced to end its sixth season three episodes early as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and showrunner Eric Wallace has now addressed what's proved to be a complicated situation for The CW (and every other TV network out there forced to halt productions across the globe). 

Asked by TV Line about that massive Iris West-Allen cliffhanger, he explained: "Well, this was never supposed to be a season finale. They would have found out what happened to her in a  week; now, suddenly, that have to wait for...I don’t even know for how long. But everything will be fine. Eventually."

"These last three episodes of this season were already written, and in fact the episode after this, where you get to see exactly where Iris went to, has already been 90-percent shot. So it’s very strange for me that we were one day away from finishing that episode which suddenly is our Season 7 premiere. Fortunately, you find out where Iris went and, oh boy, will there be tears."

Wallace also looked ahead to the future, explaining that changes might have to be made to scripts as a result of COVID-19, and that huge crowd scenes, for example, are likely a thing of the past. He also indicated that we could see a smaller cast on screen in The Flash moving forward. 

"In scenes in the finale where we usually have everyone in the room, I don’t know if we’ll have all nine series regulars anymore," the showrunner explained, pointing to some big changes.

There's currently no word on productions resuming in Vancouver, Canada, and unless things change over the summer, shows like The Flash could end up slipping into a premiere in 2021 instead of 2020.
