Not only will Gorilla Grodd return in the third season of The CW's The Flash, but the story will reportedly take place as part of a two-episode arc that sees the Scarlet Speedster visit Gorilla City.
Producers revealed as much during The CW's DC Entertainment panel at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour today.
The villain, first teased in the show's pilot, had an appearance in each of the first two seasons. At the end of his season two episode, Grodd was transported to Earth-2 and abandoned in Gorilla City, a setting from the DC Comics Universe. There, Grodd is often seen squaring off with Solovar, another super-intelligent gorilla, for control.
Unless Grodd somehow finds his way back to Earth-1 and finds its version of Gorilla City, it seems likely that the two-episode mini-arc will take place on Earth-2. That could be interesting for Tom Cavanagh's Harrison Wells, who retreated home to Earth-2 at the end of Season 2. It hasn't yet been clear what version of Harrison Wells Cavanagh would be playing this season.
Playing off the events of the Season Two finale, which transformed the world of the series like the Flashpoint miniseries from the comics, The Flash returns for its third season on October 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
