The Flash Season 5 has been airing on The CW network since October 9, 2018. For those who watch Barry Allen and Team Flash on Netflix, you are probably wondering when the series will come to the streaming platform. 

In the fourth season, Barry Allen took on the first non-speedster villain in Clifford DeVoe, also known as The Thinker.

The season also ended in a major cliffhanger as a reoccurring character turned out to be Barry and Iris’ daughter Nora West-Allen, who revealed that she came from the future. 

When does The Flash Season 5 come out on Netflix? 

Netflix’s licensing deal with The CW Network means that series, such as The Flash will be added eight days after the season finale.  

Season 5 of The Flash will consist of 22 episodes. Based on that schedule, Netflix US users should expect the fifth season to arrive at the platform on May 22, 2019.  

If you are a Netflix user in the UK, Black Lightning episodes are added weekly but you will not get The Flash because The CW has a licensing deal with Sky One, which airs new episodes of the series on Thursdays.  

In other Netflix regions, such as Canada, France, The Netherlands and Brazil, the fifth season of The Flash will arrive later in 2019.
