The Flash is back for its eighth season on The CW and will be coming to Netflix in multiple Netflix regions either weekly or shortly after the show has wrapped up. Here’s an updated release schedule for season 8 of The Flash on Netflix.
Based on the DC comic book, The Flash is still one of The CW’s biggest and oldest shows on the network starting back in 2014. We’ve seen many of the older Arrowverse shows come to a close with The CW shifting to a new era of characters including Naomi, Superman, and Batwoman none of which come to Netflix.
If you’re brand new to Arrowverse or looking to rewatch in order, refer to our huge guide on how to watch the Arrowverse on Netflix.
Beyond just the TV show, it’s an interesting time to be a fan of The Flash given the character is getting a solo film in November 2022.
When will The Flash season 8 be airing on The CW?
The Flash isn’t delayed into midseason like it was for season 7 given production delays but it didn’t return to its regular slot.
Instead, new episodes have begun airing as of November 16th. It kicks starts with the long-awaited Armageddon Crossover event which covers the fifth graphic novel.
The show’s eighth season will run for 18 episodes just like last year. The show started its 5 episode run on The CW before heading into a break. Episode 6 is due to begin airing from March 9th onwards.
When will The Flash season 8 be on Netflix US?
Let’s begin with the United States as that’s where the largest audience for What’s on Netflix lies.
In the US, the show still comes to Netflix via a prior output deal Netflix struck with The CW. This deal (which ended in 2019), means that all shows will come to Netflix for the lifetime of the show plus 5 years. The deal also brings shows to Netflix around 8 days after their season finale airs.
Right now, we do not know exactly when season 8 of The Flash is scheduled to wrap but if we assume it runs for every week after March 9th it should wrap in early June 2022. That’d mean Netflix US is due to receive season 8 of The Flash in full in June 2022.
This date is subject to change we’ll likely have updates as to get towards the release date.
Many Netflix Regions Will Receive Weekly Episodes of The Flash Season 8
Elsewhere, Netflix gets weekly episodes of The Flash. That includes locations such as The Netherlands, Greece, Israel, Belgium, Romania, Slovakia, Portugal, and Canada.
If you’ve received weekly episodes in the past, you will again in 2021/2022 as well. New episodes air on Tuesdays in the United States and will drop on Netflix on the following Thursday morning.
Some regions, according to Unogs, are still waiting for season 7 to be added which is expected to happen in late 2021 or early 2022.
Fans of Grant Gustin may also be interested in his Netflix feature film coming out in 2022 in the form of Rescued by Ruby.
