The long-awaited Flash Season 3 will air on October 4th and 8 PM, with a few unexpected yet delightful surprises up its sleeve. With the reappearance of the Reverse Flash (guest star Matt Letscher), things can get a bit hairy. Barry needs to make that ultimate decision of embracing his life as Barry Allen or face his fate as crime busting speedster The Flash.
New Faces on The Flash Season 3
With Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) finally making his appearance in Season 3 after the conclusion of Season 2, there’s no telling what will happen. The timeline is something that viewers will need to bear in mind throughout the season as the normal life of season 2 plays out in the season 3 premiere.
Tom Felton, known for his role in Harry Potter, will also make his appearance in season 3 of The Flash, as Julian Albert, Barry’s new coworker. Not much is known about this role yet, except for his apparent, yet surprisingly immediate disdain for Barry.
Joey King graces the screen as Magenta, a ferocious new meta who terrorizes the city with her metal-controlling antics in episode 3. Team Flash will also meet up with old friends from Earth-2, Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (Violett Beane), who have some dilemmas of their own to deal with, such as convincing Jesse to take a step back from a life in the danger zone. Later on in the season, there is also the chance of possibly spotting the Earth-2 version of Caitlin in an episode directed by Kevin Smith entitled Killer Frost, but this is yet to be confirmed.
Here are a few highlights from The Flash Season 3 Gallery
The third season of The Flash will provide the viewer with some answers to the many questions raised in season 2. The inner conflict of The Flash/Barry Allen will reach its climax as he realizes the full extent of Flashpoint.
