It’s only been two months since The Flash Season 1 came to a cataclysmic close, but it certainly feels like it’s been way longer. (Maybe that’s a relativity-based repercussion of Barry flipping back and forth on the time spectrum.) We’re waiting as patiently as possible to see where Flash and his S.T.A.R. Labs team go later this year, and who they’ll be putting out of commission – because the good guys always win. Rather than just sitting around twiddling our thumbs at 4/5th the speed of light, we’re putting together everything we know about the upcoming Season 2.
When Will The Flash Season 2 Premiere?Fans of the Scarlet Speedster and his non-stop personal drama can tune into the Season 2 premiere this fall when it airs on The CW on Tuesday, October 6, at 8:00 p.m. ET. Just in time for Mad Hatter Day. But wait, that’s going to be a Gotham villain!
What Have We Seen From The Flash Season 2?It’s still relatively early, so The CW is keeping new footage and imagery close to their lightning bolt-decorated chests. But the network did release an official image of Flash’s new suit, which they had on display at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Check it out, in all of its altered-decal glory.
Here’s hoping we get some more extensive visual peeks in the near future. Or the past. However they want to play it.
What New Characters Can We Expect In Season 2?The Flash is really opening things up in Season 2, and they’re bringing in a slew of new characters to drive the drama forward, although not all of them have been revealed just yet. On the good guy front, we’re going to see a (presumably glorious) live-action version of other-Flash Jay Garrick for at least one arc, and he’ll be played by Teddy Sears. That other other-Flash Wally West is also going to appear in Season 2. Since Eddie is dead, Joe will be needing a new partner, and that’s where Shantel VanSanten will come in, as she’ll play comic character Patty Spivot, who will balance her cop partner duties with a love interest angle for Barry. We may also get to see Cisco taking steps to become the character Vibe, but everyone’s pretty cagey about info on that.
As far as the bad guys go, we’re getting Zoom as the big bad of Season 2, though he hasn’t been cast yet. We’ll get to see the always amazing Michael Ironside taking on the role of Lewis Snart, the father of Captain Cold and Lisa “Golden Glider” Snart, the latter of whom may also return for Season 2. Adam Copeland, better known to wrestling fans as Edge, has been cast as Atom Smasher, a hero in the comics who’ll be doing more nefarious things in the TV show.
