The Flash Gets a New Suit in Season 4 Set Photo
With The Flash ending its third season on a shocking cliffhanger, many have wondered what will become of the Speed Force-trapped Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin), as well as the rest of Team Flash, when the show returns in October.
And judging by new set photos, Barry might make his way out of the Speed Force sooner than later - and with some new duds as well.
Set photos captured by YVRShoots.com show Gustin on set during July 28th, wearing what appears to be a new Flash suit. This comes after Gustin shared a photo of part of the suit on Instagram, and spoke about his desire for a new costume during an interview with ComicBook.com at San Diego Comic-Con.

Interestingly, the suit is appears to be almost identical to the suit worn by the 2024 version of Barry Allen, which was briefly seen in last season's 'The Once and Future Flash'.
It's safe to assume that when the suit is shown in Season 4, it won't be worn by 2024!Barry, as his dark future time was erased after the defeat of Savitar. If anything, this feels like a case of Team Flash not fearing the future, similarly to when Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) gave Barry some foretold suit upgrades in Season 2.
Either way, Barry's newest upgrade is certainly welcomed by quite a few fans, and will be fun to see outside of the dark aesthetic of the 2024 timeline.
The Flash returns for its fourth season on The CW on Oct. 10. The third season of The Flash is now available to stream on Netflix and will come to Blu-ray and other home media on Sept. 5.
Struck by the supercharged fallout of a particle accelerator explosion, forensic scientist Barry Allen becomes the fastest man alive: The Flash! With his newfound time-warping speed and help from the S.T.A.R. Labs team – Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells – and his adoptive family, Detective Joe West and Joe's daughter Iris, the Scarlet Speedster runs circles around other metahumans set on wreaking havoc in Central City, while traveling between alternate universes and protecting our world from otherworldly threats. Last season, new dangers arrived from a parallel earth known as Earth-2, under the direction of an evil speedster named Zoom.
In Season Three, Barry faces the unknown – as he irrevocably alters the timeline by saving his mother from the clutches of the Reverse-Flash. The only question now is – as he wrestles with the consequences of his own Flashpoint Paradox, including the wrathful Speed God Savitar – will he be able to find a way out?
The Flash was developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns at The CW as a spinoff of Arrow. The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash.
