Grant Gustin gets his iconic chinstrap cowl back for for the upcoming sixth season of The Flash in this new piece of fan art.
After The Flash season five gave Grant Gustin a drastic redesign compared to previous evolutions of his costume throughout the series, one of the biggest complaints from fans regarding the suit was its lack of the classic chinstrap cowl. With the Arrowverse set to give new costumes to the lead superheroes of its shows this year, Grant Gustin will be sporting an updated costume for The Flash season six.
The question remains whether or not the hero will regain his New 52-inspired chinstrap cowl as the first official photos of Grant Gustin’s new suit for The Flash did not reveal the costume’s new cowl. But that’s not enough to stop fans from imagining what Grant Gustin’s latest suit for The Flash could look like with the return of the Scarlet Speedster’s former cowl. New artwork from digital artist _DV_ offers fans a look at what the new suit for season six could look like complete with the iconic cowl. You can check it out below.

Not too much is known about the sixth season of The Flash but Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy is set to recur as the DC Comics villain Bloodwork. In the comics, Bloodwork is a Central City morgue employee and hemophiliac who developed the ability to transform his flesh into blood-like physiology after experimenting with blood properties. The new season has also been teased to have a big bad that is the most personal villain for Grant Gustin’s The Flash since Eobard Thawne.
Grant Gustin’s The Flash season six will also lead into Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Arrowverse’s next mega-crossover event. The Flash is set to become The CW’s main DC Comics drama with Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen seemingly leading the other Arrowverse superheroes forward after Arrow completes its final 10-episode run. The back half of the next season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash will also deal with the fallout from the crossover. Production on the sixth season of the Grant Gustin series is currently underway.
Here is the official synopsis for the previous season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash:
Barry Allen (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 (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 (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), master-detective Sherloque Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and The Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and his girlfriend Cecile Horton (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.
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man
The Flash airs on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Grant Gustin series!
