Considering the ratings and overall appeal of the show with audiences and what it’s doing to help raise all boats on the network, it should come as no surprise that The CW has renewed The Flash fro a second season. The show just came off of the first full batch of episodes of its first season where it’s definitely a very polished and well oiled machine, which makes sense since it brought along a number of Arrow veterans, and it’s teased a lot of questions for fans while also answering a lot of them. The show also had a strong crossover episode pairing with Arrow that reinforced some of the possibilities of the two properties in a very good. way
The series stars Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh.
Series concept: After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.
