In “The Flash” season 3 finale, Barry Allen sacrificed himself to the Speed Force, but we all knew that he would be making his return at some point. It’s not clear yet how Team Flash will get Barry Allen out of the Speed Force, but it was confirmed months ago that he will be getting out, and he’ll be a new man when he returns.
“The Flash” season 4 premiere is titled “The Flash Reborn” and after 3 seasons of trauma, Barry will finally be letting go of all the emotional baggage he’s been carrying around. It’s been teased that the new season will be more lighthearted than season 3, but it looks like Barry will have some adjusting to do before he gets back to normal.
The latest promo video for the new season shows Barry’s return, and you can check it out below.
“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.
