The Flash is still running full-steam ahead in its seventh season, renewed for Season 8, but two of the show’s original cast members won’t be along for the ride. Tom Cavanaugh and Carlos Valdes will depart during The Flash Season 7, Deadline reports.
Carlos Valdes, who has played the part of tech genius Cisco Ramon–and his super-powered alter ego Vibe–will reportedly end his run with the Season 7 finale.
Tom Cavanaugh has played a variety of characters in the show. He has to be in the running for most characters portrayed in a live-action series, right? He began as Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne, disguised as scientist Harrison Wells. Upon Thawne’s initial defeat, Cavanaugh returned as Harry Wells, H.R. Wells, Sherloque Wells, and Nash Wells–not to mention a whole host of silly one-shot Wells variants. Cavanaugh’s departure is a bit muddier. The actor was reportedly set to end his run with the Season 6 finale, but The Flash’s season was cut short like so many others.
