Grant Gustin Reveals ‘THE FLASH’ Season 4 Will Be Lighter

July 23, 2017


The cast and executive producer of The CW’s THE FLASH took part of the panel at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con and while a few announcements were made, EW also spoke to the leading actor about what can we expect about Season 4.

“I think it’s safe to say, nothing against anything, it was the least fun season [Season 3], too, because it was so heavy. You can feelt it in your belly when you went home. You were affected by the storyline, I was, at least. The job’s more fun when you’re goofing around on set.”

Executive Producer Todd Helbing added:

“I think that’s as dark as we ever want to take the show, and we’re making a conscious effort this year to get the fun quotient back up.”

Gustin added:

“It’s THE FLASH; it should be fun.”

Barry Allen (Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive– The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) forever. With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs– Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I. Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R Wells (Tom Cavanagh)– Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.

Season 3 left Team Flash, Barry Allen trapped inside the speed force and the best team in the business was trying to free him.

Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Todd Helbing, and Sarah Schechter. The series is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

THE FLASH returns with its fourth season on October 10 at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.
