THE FLASH, ARROW And LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season Premiere Synopses Released By The CW

The CW has released initial synopses for the upcoming seasons of three of its DC TV shows: The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.

The big reveals are obviously being saved for SDCC later this month so these breakdowns don't give much away in terms of plot, but they do provide fans with some idea of what to expect when The Legends, The Scarlet Speedster and The Emerald Archer return to our screens in October.

The Flash season 4, episode 1:

“Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.”

Arrow season 6, episode 1:
“With the future of the team left hanging in the balance, Arrow gave new definition to the phrase “blowing up the show.” The emotional showdown between Oliver Queen and Adrian Chase was the perfect conclusion to a stellar fifth season of The CW’s gritty DC Super Hero series. Now, the focus shifts to uncovering the fate of each and every member of Team Arrow. Could anyone have possibly survived an island-wide explosion, or has the book closed on them, as it has on Oliver’s five-year flashback story? Returning to San Diego Comic-Con for a sixth consecutive year, cast members Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Paul Blackthorne, Katie Cassidy, Echo Kellum, Juliana Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez and producers will be on-hand for an eye-opening conversation about the upcoming season.”

Legends of Tomorrow season 3, episode 1:
“After crash landing the Waverider in a version of 2017 Los Angeles where dinosaurs roam the streets and the skyline is adorned with London’s iconic Big Ben clock tower, the Legends were quick to realize that “we broke time.” Last year, the loveable band of misfit heroes traveled throughout the timeline fixing a series of Aberrations.”

The CW SDCC panel will take plave on Saturday, July 22.

Already missing my weekly iZombie fix

The Flash is the best show of the lot, Arrow only improved slightly last season
GhostDog - 7/3/2017, 10:51 AM
Barry will break free at the end of episode'll be quick and effortless..
GhostDog - 7/3/2017, 10:52 AM
He'll get a pep talk from the speed force spirit of his dad or mom and then BREAK FREE...
MeAreLegend - 7/3/2017, 11:22 AM
@BlackBeltJones - even worse. Barry isnt getting out by himself. The [fricking] team is going to get him out of the speedforce.
GhostDog - 7/3/2017, 11:37 AM
@MeAreLegend - uggggh
GhostDog - 7/3/2017, 11:37 AM
@MeAreLegend - he needs his hand held too much
Nightmare - 7/3/2017, 11:58 AM
@BlackBeltJones - Meanwhile, DCEU Flash doesn't have a team or friends...

... or a director!
BlackIceJoe - 7/3/2017, 12:32 PM
@Nightmare - Recently Edgar Wright was asked about doing a DC film during an interview for Baby Driver and said never say never. So maybe he'll come onboard and direct the movie.
Himura - 7/3/2017, 3:32 PM
@BlackBeltJones - If youve been reading the recent Flash comics it makes sense that he needs help to get out of the speedforce...

Arrow destroyed Flash last season. really really great

@TheManFromLolliLand - "Arrow destroyed Flash last season."

Not in terms of ratings it didn't. The Flash is first of the CW network with an average of 2.8 million viewers, then Supergirl, then Legends, then Arrow last at 1.7 million. Then Supernatural and Riverdale.

From last year, Arrow has lost 30% viewers, The Flash 20%, and Supergirl… 70%. Supergirl was first by far last year and has fallen into oblivion this year by losing 2 million viewers. At this pace, next year, it's gone. The CW is known to be pretty ruthless regarding poor ratings. The only show that is barely progressing is The Originals, which is spectacular after 4 seasons when everything else is falling. Supernatural is stable. Everything else is in a deep dive with iZombie right after Supergirl with a loss of 35% viewers.

@Asturgis - no one cares how many times you post your statistics about ratings. Arrow was by far the better show last season.
TheManFromLolliLand - 7/3/2017, 3:40 PM
@Asturgis - Ratings were bad but that was expected. I love both shows but quality wise Arrow blew it out of the water
Asturgis - 7/3/2017, 3:53 PM
@Himura - Well, the public didn't agree with you. Those were not my statistics, but the CW's. On a site where 1 article out of 3 is about numbers, performance, ratings and money, I thought it could be interesting to show beyond the shadow of a doubt that people who think like you are a minority. Or at least that maybe, just maybe, you'd be smart enough to understand that it's only your opinion and not a fact. That being said, I apologize if you felt I criticized your favorite show.

Someone told me they almost made a Friday the 13th show for the CW. As someone currently obsessed with the game, I'm disappointed it wasn't green lit.
Nightmare - 7/3/2017, 12:06 PM
@McGee - It definitely shouldn't be a show. I think Freeform tried an 80s style camp slasher show and it sucked.

I'm bummed the sequel to the reboot of F13 fell through. It was suppose to take place in a snowy setting.
MeAreLegend - 7/3/2017, 11:24 AM
I want them to keep Barry away until atleast the four night crossover or the midseason finale. Highly unlikely though. Hell get out by the end of the first episode.

And the worst part: the team is getting him out of there. Barry isnt breaking out of there, his [fricking] team is.

idk Barry has been super lazy this season. (e.g. watching and doing nothing as wally gets sucked into the speedforce). Still excited to see the next season
MrCamw1 - 7/3/2017, 11:28 AM
Why is Prometheus still referred to as Adrian Chase when they confirmed his name was really Simon Williams?? Any way, season 5 of Arrow was great so can't wait for the next. Legends season 2 was great too with the villains being the highlight. Flash was hit or miss for me this season, especially with the finale. Hopefully season 4 steps up.

Hoping Manu Bennett makes a surprise appearance at the panel. How awesome would it be if they announced him as a series regular again or even better, his own show.
BlackIceJoe - 7/3/2017, 12:42 PM
@EnterZoom - As much as it'd be cool if Manu got his own show I doubt it because he is committed to more seasons of the Shannara Chronicles.
