When “The Flash” returns for season 4 in the fall, Team Flash will look a little bit different. It was recently confirmed that Tom Felton will not be returning as a series regular in season 4, and now another Team Flash member has been removed from the group.
In the final episodes of “The Flash” season 3, Tracy Brand played a big role in Team Flash’s attempts to take down Savitar. In the season 3 episode titled “Infantino Street” H.R. Wells officially invited Tracy Brand to join Team Flash, and she agreed.
However, it looks like now that H.R. is no longer a part of Team Flash, and the Savitar problem has been solved, Tracy Brand will be moving on to other things. Entertainment Weekly recently asked Todd Helbing if Anne Dudek will be returning as a series regular, and he noted that she won’t be a series regular, but we’ll see her at some point. Helbing said, “I don’t believe so, but you’ll see her.”
It was clear from the first trailer for season 4 that the dynamic for Team Flash has changed now that Barry is gone, and Helbing also noted that even though they’ve stepped up, they’re still not where they were with Barry at the forefront.
“Everybody has risen to the occasion, everybody has stepped up. You have Iris now as team leader, you have Kid Flash and Vibe going out on the town and taking out all the meta, they’re working closely with Joe and CCPD. They’re pretty formidable, but they’re still not quite [what they used to be].”
“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.
