The Flash midseason promo teases A LOT of villains...even the Pied Piper!

This week, a lot of shows returned from their winter hiatus. Unfortunately, The Flash wasn't one of them. You'll have to wait a couple weeks for its midseason premiere. But, to tide you over, The CW has released a new promo teasing what's to come. 

The video is overflowing with villains. We're already familiar with a few, like Captain Cold, Heat Wave and Reverse Flash. While Barry was enjoying the holidays, the bad guys were biding their time. Now they're ready to make a move.

Captain Cold and Heat Wave are played by Prison Break alumni Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. And they're not the only ones getting screen time. We also get our first look at the Pied Piper, played by Andy Mientus. From the looks of it, he and Cisco really don't get along.

So many villains. So little time. Thank goodness Barry's faster than a speeding bullet (a point the promo drives home).

The Flash returns Jan. 20 on The CW.
