The series’ graphic novel format will be continued in the eighth season. The Flash Season 8 could be the next big thing in the series storyline. One of the graphic books will introduce a new adversary who is “a pretty nasty person,” according to Wallace, and when he appears, “we might dip our toes into the world of horror and the supernatural.” Joe West will “get a tremendously new perspective on life, and it will lead him to a very major choice,” Wallace revealed in September 2021.
Wallace also stated that Iris’ time sickness will be addressed after the event “Armageddon” will be “a massive, huge aspect of the entire season, and it will take the entire season to fix it.” And this will have a significant impact on Barry and Iris’ marriage and relationship.”
Barry Allen / The Flash actor Grant Gustin returns in the title role. Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker were still “negotiating new deals to return” in May 2021, therefore it was unknown if they would return. Both actresses, as well as Jesse L. Martin, signed contracts a month later. Cecile Horton is played by Danielle Nicolet once again.
