Team Flash will have their hands full when “The Flash” returns for season 4, as The Thinker has already been confirmed as the big bad, but the team will also have to deal with several other villains throughout the course of the season.
One villain who Team Flash will be going up against is Hazard. Variety is reporting that “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” star Sarah Lyn Beard has been cast as Rebecca Sharpe, aka, Hazard, and the character description reads as follows:
“Sharpe is described as perpetually down-on her luck and is convinced her life is cursed — until a freak accident changes everything. With the universe on her side, she poses a threat to both Team Flash and Central City.”
Sarah Lyn Beard joins other newcomers to the series such as Hartley Sawyer who will be playing The Elongated Man, Danny Trejo who will be playing a character named Breacher who happens to be Gypsy’s father, and of course Neil Sandilands will be playing The Thinker, and Kim Engelbrecht will be working by his side as The Mechanic.
“The Flash” season 4 will premiere on Tuesday, October 10.
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.
With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.
