Flashpoint begins, Kid Flash arrives: Flash Season 3 trailer gets intense

The first footage for the upcoming third season of The CW’s The Flash has been unveiled! The cast was on hand in Ballroom 20 to give us our first official look at what’s coming up for Team Flash in Season 3.

The new season will adapt DC Comics’ famous Flashpoint storyline penned by Geoff Johns (the core miniseries, that is) and will introduce a new speedster played by Spartacus alum Todd Lasance (he played a Julius Caesar in his fighting prime). We’ll also get to see Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) suit up as Kid Flash on the show in this new timeline, created when Barry (Grant Gustin) went back in time to save his mother from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash.

Needless to say, Barry's actions will create a boatload of changes when the comic book series returns in the fall!

Returning to the series are Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes. Joining the cast as a new season regular is Harry Potter’s Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton as Barry’s fellow CCPD CSI, Julian Dorn.

Season 3 of The Flash will premiere on Oct. 4, 2016.
