The CW announced today that The Flash will be coming to an end after its upcoming ninth season. The drama was renewed for Season 9 back in March, though there was no word that the time that it would be its last.

Currently sitting at 171 episodes, the series is one of the longest-running superhero-based TV shows of all time. Its final season will be the shortest of its run at just 13 episodes, which will bring its total to 184.

The Flash follows forensic scientist Barry Allen, who fights crime using his speedster abilities as The Flash, with help from his friends at Star Labs. Based on the DC comic, the series takes place in the same universe as fellow DC-based superhero fare on the network.

Look for the final season of The Flash in 2023.
