The Flash will have a new showrunner when the series speeds into its sixth season this Fall.
Todd Helbing is on the way out, to focus on development for Warner Bros. Television, and taking his place will be Eric Wallace.
“From his first day on The Flash, Todd Helbing has been a leader on the show, beloved by the cast and crew for his exceptional talent, vision and wonderful attitude. We are all sad to see him go, but we will all be better for the many shows he will no doubt create and run in the future,” The Flash exec producer Greg Berlanti said in a statement that was posted by The Hollywood Reporter. “Eric Wallace has proven his own exceptional talent and voice since season four, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to watch how he shapes the future of Team Flash and the many thrilling adventures that lay ahead for our characters and dedicated fans.”
Wallace has been with The Flash since Season 4 and we wish him the best of luck guiding the team!
