THE CW: The Flash will be saying goodbye to Cisco Ramon & Doctor Wells at the end of the season, but the show will continue.

 According to Deadline, Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes are both planning to exit the series by the end of the year. Both have been with the show since the beginning, and will be missed.  But if it feels like the show has been preparing for their departure for a while now. 

So while both characters will be missed, hopefully the show will re-invent itself with the new characters they’ve already introduced.  Also, Barry/Iris’ kids from the future will also be super speeding onto the show around the 150th episode.  Nora (XS) will be making a return, and Bart (Impulse) will be introduced.

The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace also issued a new statement regarding Cavanagh and Valdes’ departures from the series:

“Tom and Carlos have been an integral part of our show for seven seasons, and will be greatly missed,” said Wallace. “Both are incredible talents who created beloved characters that fans and audiences around the world have come to love. Which is why we are happily keeping the door open for return appearances.”
