Richard Harmon Joins THE FLASH As Captain Boomerang

The 100 and Continuum sci-fi star Richard Harmon will recur as Arrowverse villain Owen Mercer, aka Captain Boomerang, in the upcoming ninth season of The CW's The Flash.

Per The CW's description, a new post-Crisis Captain Boomerang has recently been released from Iron Heights with a chip on his shoulder. But the twinkle in his eye disguises a dangerous and violent threat to Central City. Nick E. Tarabay previously portrayed Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang in the Arrowverse, but was killed off in Arrow's fifth season.

The ninth season will also be The Flash's last. It was confirmed last month that the Grant Gustin-led superhero drama would end its impressive run with a 13-episode final season, to air in 2023. The series finale will also mark the end of the Arrowverse, with Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, and Naomi all completing their runs this season.

Richard Harmon joins The Flash stars Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candace Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Kayla Compton as Allegra Garcia, Brandon McKnight as Chester P. Runk, and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West.

The Flash season 9 goes into production this autumn, with an early 2023 release window.
