The CW aired a new trailer for The Flash Season 4 tonight complete with new footage, declaring that “The Flash is Reborn!”
The Flash season premiere, coincidentally called “The Flash Reborn,” is now only a few weeks away, as Barry returns from the Speed Force to find… well, we’ll see what he finds now, won’t we?
There’s a lot of new footage within this promo including a bearded Barry…. and there’s a tease of a new suit! We should have an official description and preview images soon; screen captures from the trailer can be found here. Also, considering The CW released an official longer promo for Supergirl this afternoon, it wouldn’t be surprising if we get a longer Flash promo trailer on Wednesday. (UPDATE: It appears that we didn’t get a longer one after all.)
“The Flash Reborn” airs October 10 on The CW.
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. Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).
