The Flash

Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT

Synopsis

From the ARROW creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter (GAME OF THRONES), THE FLASH is a fast-paced super hero drama that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. Written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows Central City Police scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin, CSI), an everyday guy with the heart of a hero and the genuine desire to help others. Standing still emotionally since the day his mother was murdered (and his father unjustly jailed for the crime), Barry was taken in as a child by the investigating Detective West (Jesse L. Martin, LAW & ORDER SVU) and raised in a cop's home alongside West's super smart daughter (and Barry's dream girl) Iris (Candice Patton, CSI). But when an unexpected and devastating accident at the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator facility strikes Barry, he finds himself suddenly charged with the incredible power to move at super speeds. While Barry has always been a hero in his soul, his newfound powers have finally given him the ability to act like one. With the help of the research team at S.T.A.R. Labs -- including billionaire visionary Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh, BLUE BLOODS), biogenetics expert Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker, GRIMM) and the eternally upbeat Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes, ARROW) -- Barry begins testing the limits of his evolving powers and using them to stop crime, ensuring that no one suffers a similar tragedy to his own family history. Working with his adopted father Detective West; West's conceited partner Detective Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) and Iris West, who's earning her degree in Criminal Psychology, Barry uses his superhuman abilities to help the people of Central City and stop the rogues' gallery of villains -- many of whom have also been altered by the particle accelerator explosion. Concealing his identity behind his incredible velocity, Barry can not only accomplish feats faster than human comprehension, but also taps into an energy that allows him to access moments out of time -- both past and future. With a winning personality and a smile on his face, Barry Allen -- aka The Flash -- is finally moving forward in life ... very, very fast!
