And we’re STILL rejoicing because the list of characters who’ll be performing was just released and it’s a dream come true! Seriously, this a Broadway musical we always knew we wanted and need in our lives ASAP.
The crossover event, which will premiere on March 20th and March 21st, will start at the end of Supergirl, saving most of the musical action for The Flash.
There’s just about two weeks until The Flash returns on The CW and there are some big things you might want to know about the rest of season three.
First, showrunner Aaron Helbing, is bringing the team back together: “Now that Barry has gotten a glimpse of the future, he will be trying to do whatever it takes to save her [Iris from villain Savitar]…everybody will play a huge part in that, because Iris is part of the team.”
And Julian, played by our fave Tom Felton, is trying to be part of that team too: “He feels culpable, and wants to make amends.”
Second, there are “big, exciting plans” for Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) will find in the “badass” Gypsy “a very strong adversary” as well as “someone he can’t stop thinking about.”
Third, Gorilla Grodd is coming back. Do you remember him?
He’s the psychic ape which Barry (Grant Gustin) knocked through a portal to Earth-2, where he finds Gorilla City last season — and somehow, he and Solovar, another psychic ape, are coming back to Earth-1.
So, are you ready for the new episodes of The Flash? We sure are!
“Over the past several seasons, The CW has built a schedule of proven performers, from our lineup of DC superheroes, to critically acclaimed comedies, to sci-fi dramas,” Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW, said in a statement. “Early pickups of these seven series now allow our producers to plan ahead for next season, and gives us a solid base to build on for next season, with original scripted series to roll out all year long.”
The jury is still out on The 100, iZombie, Frequency, No Tomorrow, The Originals, and Riverdale.
As previously announced, The Vampire Diaries and Reign have both been cancelled.
There are so many good WestAllen scenes in this new trailer for The Flash!
The little sneak peeks are really good, but also really heartbreaking because Barry (Grant Gustin), has just told Iris (Candice Patton), he watched her get murdered in the future by Savitar.
“Obviously Barry loves Iris more than anything,” co-showrunner Aaron Helbingshares, “and now that he has gotten a glimpse of the future, the thrust of the back half of the season is Barry trying to do whatever it takes to save her.”
Iris must be saved!
The Flash returns on January 24th on the CW.

“In Episode 7 Cisco and Barry were probably at their lowest point — because Cisco learned that Dante had died as a result of Flashpoint,” he shares. “Their friendship has been renewed through the course of these episodes, and when we come back in Episode 9 Team Flash is in a really good place. They need to be, because they’re going to confront Savitar in Episode 9.”
Any new villains coming though?
“Another one of those husk villains created by Alchemy, so there’s that to deal with,” he adds. “The mid-season finale, Episode 9, kinda creates a new problem for our heroes that they weren’t anticipating — something that they’ve never faced before. Flashpoint won’t loom as large as the challenge that presents itself in Episode 9.”
Kicking off on Supergirl, the Dominators take over Central City, and Barry (Grant Gustin) speeds over to Star City to ask the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) for help in stopping them.
Realizing the battle against the Dominators is bigger than they thought, they track down the Legends of Tomorrow, and Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) create a breach to bring back a secret weapon — Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
