THE FLASH Comic-Con Panel: The Cast and Producers Tease Season 3 and Reveal New Footage

Earth-1 will not be the same again, after last season’s jaw-dropping cliffhanger. It all seemed to be going to turn out just fine – after all, they had finally defeated Zoom and all was well again – but a grieving Barry decided to act recklessly, after his father was murdered, and ran back in time to save his mother. That single action will most likely have so many catastrophic repercussions, because Barry managed to erase an entire timeline, and has no idea what kind of present (future?) he has created.

THE FLASH stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale — along with executive producers Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s coming up in season 3. Tom Felton (who is joining the cast as Julian Dorn) also made an appearance on the panel.

Thanks to a preview for season 3 (watch it below), we know a lot of things changed when Barry saved his mother. His mother and father are alive, Cisco is filthy rich, Iris and Barry don’t know each other and Reverse Flash is back and trapped. How big are the changes? “This is something that is going to ripple throughout the whole season,” the producers said. And several characters will have different relationships with different characters.

The Flashpoint paradox will also be affecting ARROW. One of the effects is with Diggle himself, although they wouldn’t go into any details.

Other highlights:

THE FLASH will return for its third season on Tuesday, October 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
