The Flash Season 8: Release Date Status, Plot, Cast, and Trailer
Today we are going to talk about another superhuman character that has fought the inevitable time. Yes! We are talking about none other than DC comic character “The Flash.”
This superhero television show was developed by Greg Berlanti, Chris Berg, and Geoff Johns for The CW. The very loved superhero Flash is a crime fighter with power that can move at superhuman speeds.
The backstory behind Flash started when an assistant investigator of police in the forensic department Barry Allen got struck by a bolt of scarlet lightning, giving him a superhuman speed. Along with speed, he bore new gifts like traveling through time, breaching dimensions, and protecting the world from alien threats. As Allen, aka The Flash, got a revelation of all these things, he decided to save the world by alien threats. The Flash was nominated for the People’s Choice Award in 2014 and is still popular among the audience. If you are one of the DC comics readers, you must love the show already.
The show’s first season premiered in 2014and till now, seven seasons have been aired on Netflix and our very own The CW television network. With a total of 137 episodes till the last season, which premiered on 2nd March 2021, there is news that the show is already renewed for eight seasons.
Let us see what all we have for The Flash Season 8!
The Flash Season 8 Release Date
The show makers already revealed that The Flash would be renewed for another season in March 2021, a month after the premiere of season 7. However, they have not officially announced any dates regarding the same.
You already know that the seventh season was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and now the world is getting its third wave altogether. So, we are still unsure if we will see our beloved character anytime soon by the end of this year or next year.
The Flash Season 8 Cast
Till season 7, we have seen almost the same characters returning on the show. However, some guest appearances are always here and there. So, we know that significant players who managed to survive by the end of season 7 are surely getting back on the show.
The lead cast includes Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash. In addition, we will see Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/ Killer Frost, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Kayla Crompton as Allegra Garcia, Brandon McKnight as Chester P. Runk, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe and Efrat Dor as Mirror Master or Eva McCulloch.
The Flash Synopsis
The synopsis tells us that Barry Allen continues to thrive in the central city as The Flash after defeating the paradox. While he had restored the balance in the new multiverse, he is assisted with superheroes as Cisco Ramon/ Vibe, Caitlin Snow/ Frost, Chester P. Runk, Allegra Garcia, Harrison Nash Wells, and Ralph Diby, famously known as The Elongated Man as well as he has his friends and family including CCPD Captain Joe West, Iris West, and returning CSI Julian Albert.
Everything was going smoothly, but a superhero’s life is never smooth, so when all of this happens, a villain from Flash’s past appears into something more dangerous than the last time, which puts Barry in more challenging capacities and new abilities.
Now he has to train harder and learn more abilities that he did not know were possible.
Some plot points also tell us that another season will bring us three different villains: Ramsey Rosso will make his return as possibly the first or second villain. Then an Earth-prime version will be an antagonist group of the season. This group will have Roy Bivolo, James Jesse, and Janet Petty.
