The Flash is making a return for its ninth consecutive season. Still, everybody asks this: Is Iris West-Allen leaving The Flash? The future of Candice Patton in the production is up for grabs, or is it secured? Let’s put this topic under the magnifying glass to see what it is all about. Firstly, The Flash is an iconic series in The CW’s Arrowverse, and it is one of the longest-running superhero shows out there and a fan favorite of the DC Universe.

The Scarlet Speedster’s adventures in The CW allowed new generations to meet and get acquainted with one of DC’s most beloved superheroes. One fan-favorite character is Iris West-Allen, and in the context of a ninth season, she might not be there because of the Time Sickness concept, and that’s leaving fans wondering if she’s being written out. So, without further ado, let’s examine this topic.

Is Iris West-Allen Dead In Season 8?

The Era of Iris West-Allen Her and her husband, Barry Allen, has been concerned about her illness for a while. But recent episodes have revealed that it is getting significantly worse. Iris has been vanishing in and out of time, and she has gotten to the point where she is so unstable that some people who come into contact with her also vanish from existence.

Is Iris leaving?

It’s understandable why everyone worries about Iris, given that she worries about having no future. However, the most recent episode of The Flash season 8 made matters even worse when Iris was purportedly killed by a lightning bolt thanks to a complex plot by Deon and the other Dark Forces. That said, she will likely get over the Time Sickness because she’s such a big part of the show and because we already know that she and Barry will have kids in the future (Bart and Nora).

Character Development Story Arc Details

The Flash actress Candice Patton, who plays Iris West-Allen, will ostensibly return for season 9 of the well-liked Arrowverse drama. When it came to the show’s female lead, The Flash season 8 had a twist. Iris has been experiencing time-sickness since The Flash season 7, and this arc continued into season 8, where her condition continued to deteriorate. Iris reappeared in The Flash season 8, episode 19, after disappearing in episode 15, only to find herself in the year 2049 with her future children.

She only stayed for a short time, though, as Iris was experiencing time visions prior to the major twist in part 1 of The Flash season 8 finale. Iris is transported into 2022 as Barry Allen attempts to blast the Negative Forces with his lightning bolt, taking the blow. Iris not only survived the explosion, but Barry’s wife also passed away in his arms as the episode came to a close. Iris’ demise was unquestionably questioned as they entered this week’s second installment of The Flash season 8 finale because Nora and Bart West-Allen is still alive.

Does Candice Patton intend to leave The Flash? Fans have also been worried about Candice Patton’s potential absence from The Flash in season 9. Iris’s return for the upcoming season of The Flash has not yet been officially confirmed, despite reports that she and fellow veteran Danielle Panabaker were in talks to do so.

Aside from that, Candice recently finished filming for season 8 and posted an IG Story with the caption “That’s a wrap on Iris West-Allen” and a clip of her closing the door to her trailer. Fans naturally wanted to know if this was just a pre-hiatus post to confirm she finished season 8 or if she had said goodbye to the character permanently. It seems unlikely that The Flash would continue without its star (unless Candice decided to leave the show). All we can do is wait and see.
