Grant Gustin revealed how the sixth season premiere of The Flash will kick start the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
Ever since The Flash debuted in the fall of 2014, the series has been building towards the disappearance of Grant Gustin’s Scarlet Speedster in what a newspaper from the future described as a “Crisis.” Now, the Grant Gustin series is about to pull the pin on the inevitable disaster when the Arrowverse shows crossover for a five-part event titled Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Of course, details on Crisis on Infinite Earths are currently unknown, though fans suspect Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen will die in the crossover considering Arrow will conclude its eight-season run this fall and the deal the Emerald Archer made with the Monitor in last year in Elseworlds. However, Grant Gustin told ComicBook.com that the season 6 premiere of The Flash will establish the gravity of Crisis on Infinite Earths when the Monitor arrives with a dire warning for Barry Allen:
“I can’t spoil too too much because I haven’t read it yet. I’ve been teased a lot from our guys what it’s going to be. The Monitor shows up at the end of tour first episode and says the universe is in jeopardy and in order to save the universe, Barry Allen has to die. And Barry Allen doesn’t know about this deal Oliver made with the Monitor, either, so someone’s gonna die.”

Full details on the sixth season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash are under wraps, though Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has joined the cast at 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 include an antagonist who will be the most personal villain Barry Allen has faced since Eobard Thawne.
The back-half of the Grant Gustin series’ next season will deal with the fallout from Crisis on Infinite Earths. With Arrow coming to an end this fall after concluding its eight-episode final season, The Flash will also become The CW’s main DC Comics drama and Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen will seemingly lead the other Arrowverse superheroes forward.
The Flash 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 season six premieres on October 8, 2019, while Crisis on Infinite Earths will air from December 2019 to January 2020
