Hartley Sawyer will NOT be returning to CW’s THE FLASH next season. He’s been fired for some inappropriate tweets that were made before he joined the show. So the Elongated Man’ s arch will probably be wrapped up offscreen. I’m guessing that he’ll be married to Sue and retired from the hero game when the show returns in 2021. And while I’m not going to post any of the tweets here, for those that just have to know what was said, some of the tweets are floating around the web.
The producers of The Flash had this to say… “Hartley Sawyer will not be returning for season seven of The Flash. In regards to Mr. Sawyer’s posts on social media, we do not tolerate derogatory remarks that target any race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation. Such remarks are antithetical to our values and polices, which strive and evolve to promote a safe, inclusive and productive environment for our workforce.”
Sawyer posted an apology on Instagram with a caption that reads in part, “I’m not here to make excuses – regardless of the intention my words matter, and they carry profound consequences. And mine can and have caused pain and embarrassment, along with feelings I can only imagine, to supporters and fans, my cast mates, the crew, my colleagues and friends. I owe them all an apology. And I owe each of you an apology. Thank you for holding me accountable.”
