A crisis nears as The Flash sprints into his sixth season on The CW. Season 6 will be The Flash’s biggest season yet as a Crisis on Infinite Earths draws ever closer. More importantly, when will The Flash season 6 be on Netflix? Let’s find out.

After fighting numerous villains from his rogue’s gallery such as Reverse-Flash, Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold, Thinker, Zoom and Savitar, nothing can prepare team Flash for the impending Crisis on Infinite Earths.


When will The Flash season 6 be on Netflix US?

Longterm fans will know the time of year the latest season of The Flash arrives on Netflix.

There is no confirmation on when the finale is scheduled to air. We do know the season finale will air in May 2020, it’s just a question of what date.

Our prediction is the season finale of The Flash season 6 will be either May 12th or May 19th, 2020.

This means The Flash season 6 will arrive in late May or early June 2020.


What to expect from The Flash season 6

Bloodwork aka, Ramsey Rosso will be making his debut as this season’s villain. Rosso will be introduced as an old acquaintance of Caitlin Snow and will join Team Flash.

Rosso is an oncologist in The Flash, and it’s highly likely that he will get hold of Barry’s blood (Barry’s body heals at a superhuman rate), and will look to use it as a way to cure cancer. His experiments on metahuman blood are what will lead him to develop his own powers.

Bloodwork has the power to control blood. Through his powers he can take control of your bloodstream, shape blood and even burn it. While the control of blood is Bloodwork’s strength it is also his greatest weakness. If angry enough, Bloodwork can transform into a ginormous blood-like creature.

The Crossover – Crisis on Infinite Earths

New villains aside, the biggest storyline of season 6 is the impending crossover with the other Arrowverse heroes. It has been confirmed that the crossover will cover Crisis on Infinite Earths, one of the most famous storylines in DC Comics history.

All Arrowverse heroes will be involved, including for the very first time Black Lightning.

*POTENTIAL SPOILERS*

Fans of The Flash and DC Comics will know the fate of Barry Allen at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Barry sacrificed himself to stop Anti-Monitor’s scheme to destroy the multi-verse. It’s highly doubtful Barry will be sacrificing himself this season as there’s no word on Grant Gustin stepping down as the Scarlett Speedster.

With John Wesley Shipp returning to the series to take part in the crossover, it’s highly likely he may be the one to save the multiverse.


Is The Flash scheduled to leave Netflix?

With the announcement of HBO Max and the fact DC Comics has its own streaming service DC Universe, fans of The Flash have been questioning the future of the series on Netflix.

Fans fear not, The Flash isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The series is apart of a legacy contract with The CW, the contract stipulates that Netflix receives the latest seasons of The Flash after airing on The CW. Once The Flash airs its final ever season (still no confirmation when that will be) Netflix will continue to stream the series for a further five years before it leaves.

This means The Flash is guaranteed to stay on Netflix until of least 2025.
