This highly anticipated new series centers around Barry Allen whose mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend.
Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, that will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.
Barry quickly learns that being a superhero is not as easy as it seems. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.
Don’t miss out on The Flash on Dayton’s CW premiering Tuesday October 7, at 8.7c.
