Production is officially underway on the fourth season of The CW’s “The Flash” with the first episode reportedly titled “The Flash Reborn”.
It has been confirmed that events in the premiere begin six months after Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) entered the Speed Force following his defeat of Savitar. The official synopsis for the episode is as follows:
“With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.”
The episode comes ahead of this year’s four show crossover which aims to offer more emotional stakes for this shared TV universe rather than a bigger scale like with the alien invasion theme of last year.
