Cavanagh, who’s not been seen since 7×03, is thought to return for episodes 9 and 10 with his final appearance being kept as a surprise. Valdes, meanwhile, who’s increasingly taken a back seat in the storylines over the past couple of years, is believed to see out the rest of this run. There are no current plans for either to feature in the next season of the show, but the possibility is there for them to come back in a guest capacity.

Still, fans aren’t pleased with this and below you can find just some of the reactions going around social media:

It’s all very sad.

Or, to put it another way…

‘Fraid so.

Are Cisco and Wells the life of the series?

Even if you don’t agree with that, you have to admit that the show won’t be the same once they’ve left.

It’s the end of an era, but is it the end of the whole series?

Deadline, who broke the news of Valdes and Cavanagh’s exit, likewise confirmed that Grant Gustin is already locked in for at least one more season. Meanwhile, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Jesse L. Martin – the other three original cast members left standing – are in the midst of negotiating new deals to return. There’s no current word on whether the next run could be it for the show, but it’s believed that The CW is desperate to keep it going.

The Flash might be losing two of its most popular characters, but on the upside, we’ve got them for a few more episodes yet. Having just taken a short hiatus, season 7 continues on The CW from tonight, May 4th.
