“The Flash” is set to return for season 4 tonight, and with a new season comes new characters. We’ll be seeing some new heroes such as The Elongated Man, and a new big bad in The Thinker. The show will also be introducing a few more villains throughout the season and now another character has been confirmed.
During a recent interview with CBR, executive producer Todd Helbing confirmed that Kig%re will be appearing on the show in season 4.
“You get to see Kilg%re show up, which is a lot of fun, as well as Amunet Black, played by Katee Sackhoff. You get to see Hazard, which is one of the lightest episodes, in some regards, that we’ve done – and the most fun power that a villain has had.”
Kilg%re is described as a “electro-mechano-organic lifeform,” that is essentially a computer virus come to life.
Now word yet on which episode Kilg%re will be appearing in, but stay tuned for updates.
“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.
