Candice Patton Says Iris West Won't Be Following Her Reporter Dreams in 'Flash' Season 4

We’re going to see a very different Iris West than we’re used to when The Flash returns for season 4.

According to Candice Patton, she’s almost ditched her reporter dreams.

“I don’t think this season we’re going to see a lot of reporter Iris, which is a little disappointing to me,” she shared with Comic Book over the weekend.

“In terms of the traditional ‘Iris West, Ace Reporter,’ I don’t know that that’s a direction they’re going, I don’t know if we’ll ever get there.”

But, she will be taking over as a leader of Team Flash.

“She’s heavily involved at STAR Labs. She’s kind of the one overseeing everything, which is really cool,” Candice adds.

Candice also opened up about Iris’ relationship with Barry and where it will be when the show comes back.

As far as WestAllen is concerned, Iris is a little ticked off at Barry for leaving.

“She’s definitely suppressing a lot of emotions about Barry’s absence and him leaving and not really consulting her,” Candice told TVGuide. “She’s forced to deal with that anger and resentment and abandonment by kind of focusing on protecting Central City…We’re seeing a very different Iris, almost a very hardened Iris.”

And be prepared for a little tension when he does return from the Speed Force.

“They have their issues,” she add. “They have communication issues and so eventually I think we’re gonna try and see them work through those.”

The Flash returns in October on The CW.
