First Trailer For The Flash Season 6 Races Online


I don’t know about you, but I felt The Flash had been reinvigorated by its fifth season. Sure, Cicada wasn’t exactly the greatest villain to ever come through the door, but the overall journey had been thoroughly entertaining and satisfying. That said, I and others have high hopes for what’s to come this fall.

Serving up quite the appetizer is that of the first trailer promoting season 6, which can be viewed at the top of this article. Revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con, it simultaneously dazzles longtime viewers and lays the groundwork for the future of the series. We won’t say too much more about it since you can check it out for yourself above, but let’s just say this next run is shaping up real nicely.

Of course, as you may have figured, the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event will also largely factor into the next year of programming, as lead actor Grant Gusting recently teased the following during an interview:

“Moving toward the crossover, we’re going to see the impact [losing Nora] is going to have on the future. We’re also going to find out more about the ‘Crisis’ headline in the [future] newspaper and why that date changed [in the season 5 finale], if the date changed. Heading toward the crossover we’re going to be dealing with that.”

Beyond that, executive producer and new showrunner Eric Wallace laid out how season 6 will be structured as a result of the seismic shift:

“We found really unique ways to make the season fresh that we never expected, thanks to ‘Crisis.’ This season is really divided up in a way that the episodes before the crossover are pre-‘Crisis’ episodes. Then the back half of the season is all about dealing with the fallout from the events of ‘Crisis.’”

The Flash returns with new episodes on Tuesday, October 8th on The CW. And as Comic-Con continues on throughout the weekend, be sure to stay tuned for more updates about season 6 and the rest of the Arrowverse series, as we’re sure to get more.
