‘The Flash’ Gets New Season 6 Trailer
The CW has released a new trailer for Season 6 of ‘The Flash‘, which returns soon to Sky One in the UK.
The series stars Grant Gustin as C.S.I. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) whose life is forever changed when an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs causes a dark-matter lightning storm making him the fastest man alive aka, The Flash. Together with “Team Flash”, including Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and usually, a Wells (Tom Cavanagh), the gang battle other metahumans, with the help of adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and his girlfriend Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), to keep Central City safe.
As you may remember, Season 5 ended on the ominous note that saw the future newspaper headline, which had been predicting that The Flash would vanish in a crisis event in 2024 changed, with the date now set at 2019. As you can see in the trailer, Barry and the team are now having to deal with the reality of what that could mean. They also have to deal with a new villain as Sendhil Ramamurthy (‘Heroes’, ‘New Amsterdam’) arrives portraying Dr Ramsey Rosso, aka Bloodwork. They will have some help in the form of yet another Wells – an “angry one” as Cisco puts in. And Barry also has a new suit… so at least he has that going for him!
The first half of Season 6 will lead up to the major ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’ crossover event, which is split across episodes of ‘Supergirl’, ‘The Flash’ and ‘Batwoman’ pre-Christmas, concluding with ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ post-Christmas… Here is where we have a bit of a problem for UK viewers…
At the time of writing, the news we are getting from Sky is that they have not picked up the ‘Batwoman’ series and are saying they have “no plans” to air it… Whether that changes, or whether they can at least just air the crossover episode is unclear. We hope they manage to sort out something before they reach the ‘Crisis’ crossover, because having 1/5th of the story missing would be a major blow to UK fans who have been following the Arrowverse on Sky for the past 7 years. We will update you if the situation changes.
‘The Flash‘ Season 6 along with ‘Arrow’ and ‘Supergirl’ are due to return to Sky One “soon”. ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ does not premiere until mid-season (i.e. early 2020) in the US, so should be back early next year in the UK too.
