First Synopsis For Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Season 7 Teases A “Devastating” New Threat

Grant Gustin’s The Flash will have to face an even more powerful and devastating new threat in season 7.

Yesterday, The CW President Mark Pedowitz unveiled the networks new schedule and revealed that all of the DC TV series will not return until January 2021. Now, The CW has revealed the first official synopsis for the seventh season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash and it teases an even more powerful threat than Eva McCulloch’s Mirror Master. 

You can check out the synopsis for the seventh season of Gustin’s The Flash below.

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 superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

The Flash season 6 was forced to end abruptly due to the ongoing pandemic and the series will have to tie up some loose ends for the first few episodes of its seventh season. Grant Gustin recently revealed that the Reverse Flash was supposed to return after team flash dealt with Mirror Master, so one can assume that he will be the devastating new threat or have a connection to them.

Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
