DC TV is coming back in less than a month on The CW with the big Arrowverse lineup back for more hero action. One of them is everyone's favorite speedster, The Flash, which will premiere in October for its new season.

As the show gets ready to return for its fourth year, we've learned a lot about the new season. If you don't want to be spoiled, then stop reading any further. Go through the slides below to find out everything that we know about The Flash Season 4 so far!

1. Back To Basics - A Brighter Season

Back To Basics - A Brighter Season
The Flash Season 3 became the show's darkest year, but the fourth season is all about bringing back the light. Producers of the show have stressed as early as San Diego Comic-Con about this season's new tone.

"We're also trying to lighten the tone this year. Last year was pretty dark, we're going to try to get back to the jokes."

2. A New Harrison Wells Is Most Likely Coming

A New Harrison Wells Is Most Likely Coming
Every season we've met a new Harrison Wells from the Multiverse. While Season 4 will still feature Earth-2 Harry, we'll most likely meet a new one later in the year.

Tom Cavanagh teased back at Comic-Con that they're exploring what new Harrison they will use.

"We're just gonna start there, with [Harry], and see as we progress toward the big season arcs – I don't know what you guys know about the main villain and stuff – but we're going to, around that time, see what other versions of Wells are available.

He said, politically correctly, without giving hardly anything away...Like I say, there are all these different Earths we created, and there are all these different Wells to pick from, and so we pick from them."

Be sure to let us know in the comments what type of Harrison you'd like to see!

3. Gypsy Is Sticking Around & Bringing Some Family Into Town

Gypsy Is Sticking Around & Bringing Some Family Into Town
One of the fan-favorites from the past season was Jessica Camacho's Gypsy, a bounty hunter from Earth-19. She'll be a recurring guest-star this season as she'll keep bonding with Vibe.

However, is Vibe ready to meet her father? He better be because Danny Trejo is set to recur as Breacher, who is also a bounty hunter. Breacher is described as an imposing man who will do anything to "prevent any inter-dimensional traveler from threatening life on his planet – especially his daughter's."

Will daddy approve of his daughter's man? Tune in on Tuesday nights to find out!

4. The Fastest Man Alive Vs The Fastest Mind Alive

The Fastest Man Alive Vs The Fastest Mind Alive
Expecting an evil speedster in The Flash Season 4? Forget about it because The Flash Season 4 is going a different route this year with their big bad. Neil Sandilands (The 100) is set to play DC villain Clifford DeVoe a.k.a. the Thinker.

After several hints in the third season, the CW drama is officially bringing him in as Barry new foe. WBTV describes him like this:

"A metahuman with a mega mind who embarks on a season-long battle with The Flash that pits the "fastest man alive" against the "fastest mind alive."

A true genius, he's devised an intricate plan to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity."

But DeVoe won't be working alone, which brings us to our next point...

5. Behold The Mechanic

Behold The Mechanic
While we don't see many of them on the show, we're getting another female baddie this year. Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion) will be playing DeVoe's right hand, the Mechanic. She will recur alongside the Thinker throughout the season. The way WBTV describes her is like this:

"A highly intelligent engineer who designs devices for DeVoe.

As DeVoe's right hand, she's the truest of true believers who'll stop at nothing to help him implement his plan to fix humanity."

6. Other Romances Will Evolve

Other Romances Will Evolve
While Barry and Iris will always be the show's power couple, there's a lot of romances growing this season. At San Diego Comic-Con, Jesse L. Martin teased the growth of Joe West and Cecile Horton's relationship in the coming season.

"It's going to progress. That's really all I can say. She's going to be around, so we'll see what happens."

With Gypsy sticking around on Earth-1, expect their relationship to evolve too. In addition to that, Andrew Kreisberg teased recently that we'll see some evolution in Wally West and Jesse Quick's romance.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.


Thawne: Dawn, if I’m not mistaken?
Nora: Nora.
Thawne [To Barry]: Oh, that’s nice. At least you still have one.
