Another original cast member from The Flash leaving

Jesse L.Martin will still make occasional appearances on the show

The CW

Hot on the tail of the recent ninth season announcement, “The Flash” is about to say see-ya! to OG star Jesse L.Martin.

Martin has played father figure/detective Joe West on the CW series since day one. He will make his last appearance as a series regular this season but is believed to be returning for one-off appearances here and there down the track.

As of the current season, Martin, Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, and Danielle Panabaker are the only original cast members still full-time on the series.  While Gustin recently signed a deal to return for a ninth season, Patton and Panabaker are still in talks.

Where’s Martin off to? He’ll star in a new NBC pilot called “Irrational”, playing a world-renowned professor of behavioral science who lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, corporations and law enforcement. His world is turned upside down when he meets his match in a female domestic terror suspect. The pilot shoots in Vancouver, also home to “The Flash”.
