Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanaugh Leaving ‘The Flash’ After 7 Seasons


It’s a sad day for fans of the Scarlet Speedster and Team Flash. It was recently announced by Deadline that though The Flash will be going forward with season 8, two cast members that have been a part of the show since the very beginning will not be returning. That’s right, Tom Cavanaugh (Harrison Wells) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon) are exiting The CW production after seven years.

Valdes is set to end his run on one of The CW’s most successful superhero shows in the sesason 7 finale. Though Cavanaugh exited in episode 3 of season 7, something that got carried over to the new season instead of occuring in season 6 due to the pandemic shutdown, it’s been stated by the show’s producers that he will make another appearance before the season is up, though just when that will be is currently unknown.

What this means for the future of Team Flash and for the show itself remains to be seen. Will Chester P. Runk fill the void of Cisco’s absence? How will stopping the never-ending parade of Wells’ affect the team’s functioning. We’ll simply have to tune in and see.
