What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Nicolet, Efrat Dor, Tom Cavanagh, Brandon McKnight, Kayla Compton, and Jesse L. Martin. The action-adventure series centers on police scientist Barry Allen (Gustin) who develops super speed after a dark-matter lightning strike. Behind his mask, Barry uses his powers to protect the people of Central City from many an evil force as The Flash. The seventh season picks up where season six left off, with the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City. The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris (Patton). With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Valdes) and Nash Wells (Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West ( Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (McKnight). The Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team (and his marriage) apart.
