‘The Flash’ Star Candice Patton On Iris West’s New Role In The Team

The Flash Iris WestIt was a sad day for Iris West and Team Flash in the Season 3 finale of The Flash when Barry Allen had to step into the Speed Force in order to stabilize it. The consequence from this was that he had to bid farewell to his loved ones before stepping into the Speed Force. The only thing that we know right now about Season 4 is that Clifford DeVoe a.k.a. the Thinker will be the main antagonist of the new season.

Candice Patton, who plays the ace reporter Iris West on the show, recently spoke with With An Accent’s Tatiana Hullender at the Saturn Awards where the actress also won an award for Best Supporting Actress on TV. While she couldn’t reveal much, Patton did confirm that the new season takes place six month after the events of “Finish Line” and that we will see an evolved Iris who is now leading Team Flash in Barry’s absence.

“There are things that I want to say that I can’t say. I’ll say that starting off [the season], Barry’s in the Speed Force, we’re without our team leader and we do get to see a different version of Iris. She’s a bit harder and she’s without the love of her life. It is six months in the future, so we will see a kind of hardened Iris and she’s also more of a leader, she’s kind of had to step into his role as the leader of the Flash team, so there’s some changes happening for sure.”

While we may not have a lot of details right now, the cast and creatives are officially attending this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in just a few weeks. Hopefully then we will be learning a lot more about Season 4.

The Flash Season 4 is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.

    She won’t be part of the team anymore, ugh, i really hate the CW television formula, why are so many characters on screen on the same episode?
    You don’t need Iris, Joe, Cisco, Caitlin, HR/Harrison Wells/Harry, Wally and Julian to be series regular, not even Barry should be in all episodes.
