Have a peek into the future with this stack of promo images from the first episode of The Flash’s upcoming fourth season…
We’ve heard a lot of promises about season 4 being a lighter affair after the glumness of season 3, so we’re looking forward to a new chapter in the life of Barry Allen come October.
A new trailer for season 4 of The Flash has also arrived. Have a look below…
Hm, ‘a hero is reborn’ is an interesting turn of phrase. Talking with TVLine, showrunner Todd Helbing explained a bit more about how Barry will emerge a different person than he was when we left him at the end of season 3.
Mild spoilers ahead…
“Barry’s time in the speed force let him deal with all of the baggage that he had the last three seasons, everything with his mom and his dad and Flashpoint. So when he comes out, he’s sort of left that all behind,” Helbing revealed. “It does really allow Barry and Grant [Gustin], in a lot of ways, to play these scenes with a lot more lightness to it. The combination of the scripts being a lot more fun and more joke-ridden, and just the state that Barry’s in when he comes out, it’s really changed the show quite a bit. There’s definitely a comedic tonal shift that we’re really loving right now.”
More as we have it.
The Flash season 4 release date
The Flash season 4 episode 1 will air on The CW, in the USA, on Tuesday the 10th of October. We’d expect the UK broadcast, on Sky, to be roughly a week later.
We’ll bring you more news as we hear it.
