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. Of course, the Arrowverse has mostly wound down now, with The Flash the only show still ongoing into the 2022/23 season with season 9 confirmed.
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 20 episodes. The show started its 5 episode run on The CW before heading into a break. Episode 6 began airing from March 9th onwards with the finale set for June 29th, 2022.
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.
In June 2022 we got confirmation that the show will be coming to Netflix in the exact manner as outlined above with all episodes of season 8 confirmed to release on July 7th, 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 that was released earlier this year in the form of Rescued by Ruby.
