'The Flash' Showrunner Talks Tom Cavanagh's Appearance In Series Finale

Tom Cavanagh is returning to The Flash one last time!

The actor, who was an original cast member on the show and has directed a few episodes, will be back for the series finale in just a couple of weeks, and we’re learning more about his return.

While Tom has played several different characters, there’s one from season one he will be reprising.

Get more details inside…

“This is Barry Allen’s final race, so you can’t tell that story without including his most infamous adversary: The Reverse-Flash,” showrunner Eric Wallace told EW. “And having brilliantly played the character since season 1, bringing Tom back as our show concludes its run was always part of the plan. Tom‘s exciting portrayal of Eobard Thawne has been unforgettable for nine years, and fans will be delighted to know that he’s brought that same wonderful intensity to our finale, too.”

Tom was last seen on the show in season eight, where he also played Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash.

He also spilled the beans on his return back in February when he went to Vancouver to film.

There are only two episodes of the show left, and you can catch Tom in the series finale, “A New World, Part Four,” on Wednesday, May 24th at 8pm ET/PT on The CW.

Here’s an episode synopsis: The Flash (Grant Gustin), the fastest man alive, is tasked with his greatest challenge yet, to save the timeline and save existence. Friends old and new gather for an epic battle to save Central City, one last time.
