Developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Geoff Johns, The Flash debuted on The CW in 2014. Based on the DC Comics character Barry Allen, The Flash is an American superhero web TV series. Since its release, The Flash has been the No.1 show for DCTV and The CW. The show has managed to rack up a huge fanbase followed by a decent viewership.
The Flash tells the story of a forensic scientist working with the Central Police Departement. However, on his way back home one day, he is struck by lightning in a freak accident. This accident puts him a coma for almost 9 months. When he wakes up, he has zero ideas about what happened. However, he later discovers that the accident has completely altered his DNA which allows him to achieve the greatest speed known to man.
With an IMDb rating of 7/10 and the Tomatometer at 89%, the show has been a smash hit. The Flash has gone to air for 6 consecutive seasons. And now the fans are desperately waiting for season 7.
Season 7: Release Date
After Crisis on Infinite Earth finally ended, everyone thought that it meant the end for The Flash. However, that is not the cast and The Flash is officially renewed for season 7. The writers have confirmed that season 7 will have around 23-24 episodes. Going by pattern, The Flash season 7 is expected to release in October 2020. But in the wake of the chaos by the pandemic, the production has been halted. This has postponed the premiere date to January 2021.
What To Expect From The New Season?
For those who saw Crisis On Infinite Earth, they know that The Flash was nowhere to be seen after the midseason finale. Though season 6 wrapped up many loose ends, it did end on a major cliffhanger.
Barry’s Speed Force has lost all their powers. Therefore, season 7 will focus on how the crew will manage to restore their powers. Iris, Kamila, and Singh are still trapped in the mirror verse. Thus it will be interesting to see what season 7 has in store for getting them out. There is a chance that the Reverse Flash might be back for season 7 as one of the main villains. This is because his status after Infinite Earth is unknown. The Mirror Master is still on the loose. Therefore, she could be the one big villain in the upcoming season. Given the Godspeed mystery in The Flash season 6, he may be fully unleashed in the coming season after all the teases.
There is a chance that this may be the FINAL season. If this is the case, it will be interesting to see how this shapes up the plot for Season 7.
With no major exits in Season 6, a majority of the cast is likely to reprise their roles in the coming season. However, Hartley Sawyer won’t be reprising his role as Elongated Man/ Ralph Dibney as he if officially fired from the show. It is yet unknown as to who will replace Sawyer in the coming season. This is how the expected cast stands:
- Grant Gustin as Barry/ The Flash
- Danielle Panabaker as Dr. Caitlin Snow/ Frost
- Eva McCulloch as Mirror Master
- Candice Patton as Iris
- Danielle Nicolet as Cecile
- Tom Cavanaugh as Eobard/ Harrison
