Last season, Team Flash finally vanquished Savitar, only for the season three finale of The Flash to end on a rather uncertain note. With many wondering what the show will do next, The CW recently provided a hint, in the form of the show's San Diego Comic-Con synopsis.
Much like Arrow's SDCC synopsis, The Flash's only teases what plot points are to come, but does reference Team Flash's quest to free Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) from the Speed force. Check it out below:
"Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.
Join cast members Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale and producers of The CW’s highest-rated series at their annual Comic-Con panel, and be among the first to find out where things will pick up when season four returns this fall."
We have already received some snippets of information from the show's cast regarding where in the show's timeline season four will pick up, as well as what role Iris West (Candice Patton) and Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) will have in the early episodes. Fans will have to wait to find out more during The Flash's SDCC panel, which is scheduled for 5:10-5:50 PM PST on Saturday, July 22nd.
