What we know about THE FLASH season 4 so far

The Flash - Season 4
The Flash - Season 4

Season 4 is a little ways off, but now that the show is back in production, word is leaking out on what to expect. We can share some of that info with you.


If you saw the season 3 finale, you know Barry entered the Speed Force to help keep things from getting out of control. And he's doomed to be running non-stop for eternity...or something else happens. Can the show go on without Barry? Maybe down the road...but come on...Barry will be back. But how? We see a glimpse of it in the SDCC trailer.

But like in the comic books, it looks like Wally fills in for awhile as the city's official FLASH.

To prove Barry comes back, pictures of him on the set with his new costume have hit Twitter & Instagram Feeds everywhere.

Here is a nicer picture of the full new suit:

Not much info about this season has leaked out, but there is a bit of casting news. Last season we were introduced to Gypsy, from an alternate Earth. She caught the eye of Cisco. Well it looks like she is definitely back for more episodes...but this time, we get to meet her father...played by Danny Trejo. He will play Breacher, "a feared bounty hunter from Earth-19 and the imposing father to inter-dimensional bounty hunter, Gypsy". Great casting.

It was also announced that Hartley Sawyer will play the classic DC character called The Elongated Man episode this season. He can stretch!


The big news is we know who the season's big trouble maker will be. So far, it's always been another "speedster". Not this year. Season 4 brings us THE THINKER, played by Neil Sandilands. The Thinker is a "metahuman with a mega mind who embarks on a season-long battle the fastest man alive to the fastest mind alive".

The Thinker has a sidekick called The Mechanic. That part will be played by Kim Engelbrecht . Described as "a highly intelligent engineer who designs devices for Devoe", she's "the truest of true believers who’ll stop at nothing to help him".


Each season Tom Cavanagh plays a different version of the same character. The first year, he was playing Eobard Thawne disguised as Harrison Wells. Season 2, he played the real Harrison Wells, from Earth 2. In Season 3, he continued to make appearances as the Earth 2 Wells, but also another Wells (known as HR) from another alternate Earth. But as most viewers know, (spoiler alert) he sacrificed himself to save Iris. So who will Tom Cavanagh play this season? We aren't sure. But he definitely is a part of the cast.

We'll find out more soon.
