Outside of the United States, the show was sold on its own to Netflix, with most countries offering it as a Netflix Original. Of course, Netflix does not own the underlying rights but rather the exclusive license for a fixed period. Each season always arrived on Netflix around nine days after the season finale. Season 9 dropped on June 1, 2023.
In the United States, Netflix got The flash as part of an overall production deal with The CW television network. Again, simply licensed for a fixed period. In these regions, Netflix mainly picked up new episodes on a weekly basis.
When The flash leave Netflix in the US?
We have two dates for when The Flash seasons 1-9 might leave Netflix. As we’ve covered before, shows on The CW often stay on Netflix for their initial run on the TV network plus five years. That would mean that the title would go in 2028 (specifically on June 1).
However, we’ve heard that the title may leave Netflix as soon as 2027, with the earliest removal date currently planned for December 30, 2027.

For those internationally, you’ll be holding on to the series for at least another three years.
Our research suggests that some countries (such as Canada and France) will lose the program in August 2026, while others will keep it until 2027 (such as the Netherlands).
Where will the show stream after leaving Netflix? Based on all of The CW’s removals so far, Max (formerly HBO Max) seems like the most likely home eventually, which is, broadly speaking, the home of all DC content.
