After playing Joseph “Joe” West for the past eight seasons on the CW's The Flash, Jesse L. Martin will no longer be a series regular on the series and is only expected to appear in multiple episodes of the DC drama in its recently picked up ninth season. The character of Joseph “Joe” West, a CCPD detective, father of Iris (Patton), Wally, and Jenna West, and legal guardian to Barry Allen (Gustin) following Nora Allen’s death and Henry Allen’s incarceration.

Martin will be leaving The Flash series to star in a new series for NBC in the pilot 'The Irrational.' The Irrational is based on bestselling author Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational.” The show centers on Alec Baker (Martin), a world-renowned professor of behavioral psychology with a unique insight into human nature who lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, corporations, and law enforcement. However, he meets his match in a female domestic terror suspect who turns his world upside down.

The pilot is written by Arika Mittman with Martin producing with Mittman, Mark Goffman, and Samuel Baum as executive producers while Ariely serves as a consultant. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, is the studio.

You mean "he'll only appear in a number of episodes because he will be spending time working on a new show." If my job switched from full time to part time in order to for me to work another job or do nothing at all, that would not mean I left my current job. The headline is still misleading.

Cool. Argument stops now.

No longer being a series regular for season 8, which is currently being shown now. As for season 9, he'll only appear in a number of episodes because he is leaving to do a new show.

The headline and article contradict themselves. No longer being a series regular is not the same thing as leaving the show.
