The Flash season 3 introduced a new character in Tuesday’s episode — Tom Felton’s Julian Albert. Much to the dismay of a very confused Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), the CSI expert seems like he’s not going anywhere.
But this is good news for fans of Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies. The actor spoke about his new role — and what we can expect going forward — while at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con back in July. Watch his interview video below.
The Flash season 3 is about to premiere, so what better time to hear from the show’s stars about what fans can expect from the new episodes? I had a chance to talk to most of the cast (unfortunately, I wasn’t able to grab Candice Patton — sorry WestAllen fans!) at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con back in July.
Watch the videos below to see what Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Keiynan Lonsdale, and two of the show’s executive producers had to say about The Flash in season 3.
First up, here’s Grant Gustin being all charming and mostly vague about what’s coming for Barry Allen. Flashpoint — the alternate timeline Barry created at the end of season 2 and the title of the premiere episode — figures prominently in his answers.
Next is Carlos Valdes, who has plenty to say about Cisco Ramon. This could be a big year for Cisco, especially since his Flashpoint doppelganger is more than a little different from the nerd we know and love.
Danielle Panabaker’s Caitlin Snow gets her changes as well in the Flashpoint universe (Spoiler alert: She utters a great line in the premiere, “Have I been kidnapped?”). The actress hinted at what might be coming in her interview.
Things will definitely be different for Joe West in season 3. What does Jesse L. Martin have to say about that? See for yourself!
The last of the actors we’ve got here (stay tuned for Tom Cavanagh and new cast member Tom Felton next week) is Kid Flash himself, Keiynan Lonsdale. Now a regular, the actor has plenty to say about what antics Wally West might get up to in the new season.
Finally, two of The Flash‘s executive producers give away more than a few Flash season 3 spoilers in their interview.
The Flash season 3 premieres Tuesday, October 4 at 8pm on The CW.
The Flash season 3 trailer makes it clear that the superhero show isn’t playing around when it comes to its Flashpoint-themed premiere.
Thanks to Barry running back in time to save his mother — and later his father — from certain doom at the hands of speedsters, everything in The Flash’s life has changed. Iris and Joe are near-strangers to Barry. Cisco now owns what used to be STAR Labs and is kind of a jerk. Eobard Thawne is alive (and imprisoned?) and angry.
And there is more than one clue in the video — which premiered during the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con — indicating that Barry’s “perfect” world is unraveling around him. It probably doesn’t much help that Wally West is a speedster himself these days.

It takes a lot to out-nerd Cisco Ramon. But a new video clip from Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, “Escape from Earth-2,” makes it clear that alt-Barry is very capable of geeking out at the highest levels.
Apparently, Earth-2’s Barry is a big fan of the comic-book genre and uses that knowledge to make sense of his meta-human doppelganger. He gets really, really enthusiastic describing what happened in the story — so enthusiastic that even Cisco gives him a weird look.
Of course, Cisco immediately insists upon calling Zoom’s hideout a lair, so nerdiness is pretty much coming from all fronts.
Detective Iris West, impressively, barely reacts to any of this and instead focuses on just what has to be done in order to find Earth-1 Barry and Harrison Wells’ daughter. It’s probably good that she is on the team right now.
What’s the “Endgame” for The Flash in season 1? While that question may need to wait for the final episodes of the season for a definitive answer, the latest The Flash video gives some rather heart-stopping hints. Everyone from the Arrow (or al Sahhim or whatever he’ll be called at that point) to Firestorm to Captain Cold (as a good guy?) to that gorilla everyone likes will be involved at some point.
And the past? That might be changing in the future. The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm on The CW.
Who cares? It’s far more fun to just watch a whole bunch of Arrow and The Flash characters going nuts in a series of cage matches. Not that there’s much of a contest here — good pretty much always wins, especially when it’s Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) or Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) doing the fighting. Still, you can’t deny that Reverse Flash and Ra’s al Ghul don’t get in some good hits.
And then Firestorm wins everything. One question though: Who was manning the scoreboard at that point?
Ray Palmer’s smart-but-clueless Atom shows up right at the end, breaking a hole in the basement ceiling of his own building. Apparently, he should have spent a little more time going over blueprints before building his ultimate fighting arena in the basement…
Is there a purpose to this video, other than to show a lot of semi-crazy people trying to kill each other? Probably not (although it may be previewing the next Arrow/The Flash spinoff, what with Firestorm, Captain Cold, and Heatwave hanging out). But this is always fun.
The Flash has been giving its fans a lot of trailers over the past few weeks. And yet another one premiered at Wondercon over the weekend!
While some of the footage has been seen before, there are plenty of new scenes to entertain and tantalize you. Watch carefully to catch a glimpse of Emily Kinney as the Bug-Eyed Bandit (is that name the work of Caitlin?), aka Brie Larvan… and her bees. Returning Rogues pass through as well — The Mist, Weather Wizard, and Rainbow Raider are all there. That last one may just explain why Eddie goes and shoots some cops.
On the good-guy side, Arrow stars are visiting en force. Ray Palmer shows up as The Atom (Cisco seems to like that name), Felicity Smoak has a repeat performance, Captain Lance digs up skulls, and even Oliver Queen takes time from his busy schedule of getting framed for mass murder. That last arrival — when combined with Firestorm — might actually be enough to beat Dr. Harrison Wells.
Or not. There’s way too much happening in the Flash video to say for sure.
WARNING: This video contains some major spoilers if you haven’t seen “Tricksters” yet. Watch at your own peril…
Who is Harrison Wells? Thanks to the most recent episode of The Flash, that question has gotten a whole lot harder to answer than anyone could have thought.
A new trailer teasing the remainder of season 1 gives some hints about how the man we have known as Dr. Harrison Wells came to be. But it certainly doesn’t answer all of the questions posed by “Tricksters.” Watch the Flash video yourself to see if you can unravel the mystery!
The Flash came to PaleyFest 2015 on Saturday, March 14. In addition to the panel, the show’s stars and producers took some time to talk to reporters about what’s coming next.
