This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of The Flash Season 3 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. The CW has scheduled the premiere date for a new season for October 04, 2016.

Basic info and plot

Based on the DC Comics character Barry Allen, The Flash is an American superhero action television series that follows the life of a crime scene investigator with the power to mover at superhuman speeds. Starring Grant Gustin, the second season of the series premiered on The CW on October 6, 2015.

After Barry Allen (Gustin) was struck by a lightning following an advanced particle accelerator malfunction and spent nine months in a coma, he awakes to discover that he can move at supernatural speed. As a crime scene investigator for the Central City Police Department, he vows to use his ability to keep his city safe and protect it from criminals who have also gained superhuman abilities during the thunderstorm caused by the accelerator malfunction. But criminals from our planet aren’t the only ones Barry has to worry about. Villains from parallel universes and supernatural forces constantly distract Barry from his work as an investigator.

In season 2, after Barry defeated his arch-nemesis Reverse Flash, a singularity that consumes everything in its path is found swirling above Central City. Will Flash be able to save everyone from the imminent catastrophe by diving into the center of the singularity, or will his powers not be enough?

At this moment, there has not been any official news on the fate of the series. However, superhero shows have always been popular and The Flash is not an exception. Considering the never-ending pool of possible problems for Barry Allen to solve, we believe that The Flash Season 3 will air some time in the near future.

Season 2 recap

The second season finale of The Flash has aired on The CW on May 24. The 23-episode season has bowed out with an average of 4.25 million viewers per episode in Live+Same Day Nielsen estimates, with insignificant losses when matched against the freshman installment, which saw a viewership average of 4.62 million fans tuning in. The continued support of the audience is what has prompted The CW to renew the superhero action series for the third season while the second chapter was still on the air. The second season finale featured the ultimate fight between Zoom and Barry (wherein Barry was forced to participate because otherwise Zoom threatened to kill his loved ones, with Barry, of course, coming out victorious, and Zoom taken away by Time Wraths despite all of his cunning gimmicks. The social media response to the final episode was mixed, yet The Flash is already renewed for a third season. Stay tuned and we will keep you up to date on important developments and the release date.
