Netflix currently has six seasons of The CW series The Flash available for streaming. Fans of the series based on the DC Comic character are anxiously awaiting the release of the seventh season on the streamer. The good news is the season will release on Netflix on July 28.
Once again, we can blame the pandemic for causing issues with the release of the seventh season of The Flash. The CW couldn’t start airing the series until March 2, 2021, which delayed the Netflix release. This delay also required the season to be cut short, and with only 18 episodes, it is the shortest season of the series. In February 2021, The Flash was renewed for an eighth season.
The series is based on the DC Comic character Barry Allen/Flash. This series is a spin-off of Arrow and exists in the universe known as Arrowverse. Allen/Flash is played by Grant Gustin and can move at superhuman speeds.
The Flash season 7 Netflix release date
The Flash has been one of the biggest shows on Netflix. Fans of the series will be happy to know that the seventh season will release on Netflix on July 28 at 12:01 a.m. PT and 3:00 a.m. ET. If you are planning on bingeing this season at the time of release, this could require a late night or early morning.
The seventh season will pick up where season six left off, with Mirror Monarch (Dor) still at large. The sixth season ended early because of the pandemic, so the first three episodes of season 7 will actually be the last three episodes that should have aired in season 6. Showrunner Eric Wallace has said that Eva McCulloch/Mirror Monarch’s story needs to be finished.
The series regulars include Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton, Brandon McKnight, Efrat Dor, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin.
The trailer below will fill in some details for what the seventh season will entail.
