“The team has delivered an epic final season, filled with plenty of twists, guest stars and surprises that will delight every fan."
"Now is the time to catch-up and enjoy this fantastic final ride alongside the fastest man alive.”

"But when a deadly group of Rogues descend on Central City led by a powerful new threat, The Flash and his team—Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Meta-Empath Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), the light-powered meta Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton), brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight), and reformed cryogenics thief Mark Blaine (Jon Cor)—must once again defy impossible odds to save the day."
"But as The Rogues are defeated, a deadly new adversary rises to challenge Barry Allen’s heroic legacy."
"And in their greatest battle yet, Barry and Team Flash will be pushed to their limits, in order to save Central City one last time."
