Season 5: Wednesdays at 8:30pm ASDT from October 10
Barry Allen (series star GRANT GUSTIN) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash.
After thinking he and his wife Iris West-Allen (series star CANDICE PATTON) could finally enjoy being newlyweds, they discover their future daughter Nora West-Allen (JESSICA PARKER KENNEDY), who is a speedster known as XS, travelled back in time to heroically fight by her father’s side and stop the one villain The Flash is destined to never defeat, the meta-serial killer Cicada (CHRIS KLEIN).
The Flash and XS rely on the help of Team Flash, which includes super heroes Caitlin Snow (series star DANIELLE PANABAKER), Cisco Ramon (series star CARLOS VALDES), Ralph Dibny (series star HARTLEY SAWYER), Harrison Wells (series star TOM CAVANAGH) and Barry’s adoptive father Joe West (series star JESSE L. MARTIN) and his girlfriend Cecile Horton (series star DANIELLE NICOLET) to finally stop Cicada, save The Flash’s legacy, and discover the truth about the evil mastermind who’s pulling manipulative strings through time.
