Based on the DC Comics series, The Flash revolves around young police scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) who’s struck by lightning in a freak accident. He finds that he has super speed and decides to use his abilities as a masked hero. The show also stars Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, and Carlos Valdes.
