A staple member of Team Flash could be leaving the CW series. According to Discussing Film, Carlos Valdes will depart The Flash following the conclusion of season five.
Valdes has portrayed Cisco Ramon, aka Vibe, since season one of The Flash. Although, he made his first appearance in the Arrowverse, alongside his castmate Danielle Panabaker, during a season two episode of Arrow. Cisco began as a scientist working at S.T.A.R. Labs for Dr. Harrison Wells, who was later revealed to be Eobard Thawne, aka Reverse Flash. From there, Cisco became the hero Vibe and worked hand-in-hand with Barry Allen.
On this season of The Flash, Cisco has become somewhat sidelined after he began working on a metahuman cure. It’s unclear if that plot point will directly tie-in to Valdes’ exit from the show, but the character has appeared willing to test the serum on himself so don’t rule it out completely.
It also appears as if Valdes may not be the only cast member exiting the show after this season. There are rumors of another actor departing the CW series in the not too distant future. At this point, it isn’t clear who that may be, although potential names are Panabaker, Jesse L. Martin, and Tom Cavanaugh.

Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?
