Thanks to The CW, The Flash is returning to TV as a TV show!!! It has literally been decades since we last saw The Flash grace our screens as the fastest man alive and we're excited to announce that he is back with a little help from his friends ... Arrow.
Grant Gustin will play our dashing hero and the show will tell the definitive story of the Flash. Also look out for ex-Flash star John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen's father and a nice sentimental touch to the Flash mythology.
Here's the synopsis for the show:
After witnessing his mother's murder, and his father wrongly accused, Barry Allen is taken in by Detective West and his family. Becoming a forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department, Allen tries to uncover the truth about his mother's murder, which leads him to Harrison Wells' particle accelerator. When the accelerator causes an explosion, Allen is struck by lightning, and enters a coma. When he wakes up, he learns he has the ability to move at superhuman speeds, though he is not the only metahuman created in the wake of the explosion.
