Carlos Valdes To Exit ‘The Flash’ Following Season Five?

Published

on

Since 2014, The Flash has been a powerhouse show on The CW. When it comes to its characters, Cisco Ramon is a beloved part of the show. Unfortunately, his time on the program may be coming to an abrupt end.

Can’t Vibe To This

Actor Carlos Valdes is rumored to be departing the show at the end of season five. The big reason for him leaving reportedly involves his return to Broadway. Before landing his role, Valdes performed in productions of The Wedding Singer and High School Musical. In 2012, he was a stand-in for Jersey Boys‘ national tour. “It was definitely, absolutely the most difficult, unbelievable theater experience I have ever had in my entire life. It’s a 2½-hour show, and Frankie Valli practically never leaves the stage. It’s pretty much non-stop energy. I remember the first time was like this purging, Baptismal experience,” he told Marietta Daily Journal.

In 2013, he earned praise for his performance as Andrej in Once.

Bringing Culture To The Arrowverse

Valdes debuted as Cisco Ramon in Arrow before landing on The Flash’s main cast. He’s also played the character on Vixen, SupergirlDC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Freedom Fighters: The Ray. When it comes to Arrowverse, Valdes applauds the diversity in its shows.

“It shouldn’t be anything special to have a smart Latino character, because we’re employing casting that reflects the world we live in. In the real world we live in, we have smart people of all types,” he told SyFy.

It’s Not ‘Goodbye,’ It’s ‘See You Later’

While Valdes may be leaving at the season’s end, he can return for some guest appearances. Since Cisco is busy doing research on a metahuman cure, they can have him continue his arc in the background and off-screen without needing to do something dramatic, like kill his character off.

For Valdes, returning to his roots seems to be what he wants right now. There will always be a seat at the Arrowverse table if he decides to return.
