From its title, you can imagine the possibilities that could be in store for The Flash.
The CW will show a new take on The Flash in the form of The CW TV series, The Flash, which will be an adaptation of the comic book that has long been the DC Comics most beloved character.
This is an exciting move by The CW, which has been on the cusp of breaking the record for number of shows airing on its network in one year, and it will allow it to offer the DC Universe as a home to another popular character that has had a long, storied history.
“We have the greatest DC comic-book TV show of all time, The CW series The Flash,” executive producer Greg Berlanti said in a statement.
“It will be a love letter back to the Flash that has brought us so much joy.
It will be the first DC TV series to ever be adapted from the comics and the first to premiere on The CW.
We’re thrilled to have The Flash on the CW, and we can’t wait to see what fans create with it.”
The Flash will be available for streaming on The Hub starting Sunday.
It is the first time that the Flash has been adapted from an established comic book series, and Berlant and Beranac are taking it in a new direction.
“This show is going to be an extension of the comics, but it will also be a direct response to The Flash and all the fans who have been so incredibly supportive of it,” Berlante said.
The Flash is also the first animated superhero series to be filmed in The Flash’s home of Northern California.
“I am so excited to share The Flash with all of you, and to be able to bring all of the characters from DC Comics and all of their fans together for the first and only time, and then work on an episode with the world’s leading super-villain,” Beranant said.
“For this show, we are so lucky to have the creative team of Greg Berlan, Chris Berling and Alex Mallari, and I can’t be more proud.
It’s such a honor to be a part of this exciting project.
I can also say I’m really happy to be working with Alex Mallarini, who will be producing the show.
This will be Alex Mallaris first television project, and this will be his first series on the Flash.”
The new series will follow the adventures of The Flash as he goes from hero to hero in a battle between good and evil and the city of Metropolis.
“The Flash has never been the most popular character on the show, but I feel very lucky to be in the position to bring a new DC comic to audiences,” Berlon said.
Berlanting also noted that this is the only DC TV show to have been filmed in the Northern California area, where the studio is based.
“Every day that we are able to film in the Golden State, we want to bring to the world the magic and the wonder of The DC Universe,” Berlaman said.
“The Flash is a DC Comics adaptation, and its the first show that has been shot in The Golden State and we are thrilled to be shooting in Northern California,” Berling said.
As Berlaning has already announced, the show will follow a young, new hero named Curtis (played by Andrew Kreisberg), who has the powers of the Flash and is tasked with saving the city.
“Curtis is one of the most unique, powerful, interesting and beautiful characters I have ever worked with, and he will bring his unique and unique perspective to the series,” Berlin said.
A big cast of DC characters are set to return, including The Flash himself, Cisco Ramon (Aaron Paul), Wally West (Brandon Routh), Iris West (Candice Patton), and Sara Lance (Eliza Taylor).
The Flash returns to The CW in 2019.
