“The Flash” will be returning for season 4 in the fall, and when the show does return Team Flash will be doing their best to carry on without Barry Allen. Judging from the first trailer for the new season, it looks like Team Flash will still be actively fighting metahumans in Central City, but Barry Allen won’t be the only member that’s missing from the team.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Tom Felton will not be returning as a series regular for season 4. Tom Felton’s Julian Albert became a regular on the show after he was inadvertently added to the timeline when Barry created Flashpoint.
Barry and Julian started out as adversaries, and it was later revealed that Julian was Dr. Alchemy. After Barry and company broke Julian free of Savitar’s control, he ended up joining Team Flash.
At the end of the season 3 finale, Julian was still part of Team Flash, but Tom Felton was noticeably absent from the season 4 trailer that was released over the weekend.
That doesn’t mean Tom won’t make an appearance on the show in the future, but as of right now it doesn’t look like there are any plans for Julian, as it’s being reported that his return to the show has not been booked yet.
Will you miss Julian? Sound off in the comments 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.
