The Flash Season 6 was unexpectedly cut short due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which left more than a few storylines still up in the air. However, it seems like Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are ready to hit the ground running (pun intended). While Season 6 left off on an unexpected and unconventional season finale, the cliffhanger was still effective. Iris' (Candice Patton) Mirrorverse arc, Barry's synthetic Speed Force, and Eva's (Efrat Dor) evil plans for Blackhole were all left up in the air. Thanks to a new Season 7 trailer and some hints from showrunner Eric Wallace, a little light has now been shed on the upcoming season.
Here's everything we know so far about The Flash Season 7.
It will return in January 2021. TV Guide can confirm that The Flash Season 7 will premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 8/7c. That's about a month after a few of the other CW shows return, but the superhero show does require more special effects in every episod than most shows.
Production began in October. Deadline reports Season 7 began filming on Oct. 1 in Vancouver. The studio put safety rules in place and required a two week self-isolation period before filming began on all Vancouver-based shows.
Season 6 storylines will be wrapped up in Season 7. The Flash Season 6 ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with Iris vanishing in the Mirror World after seemingly developing some mirror powers. Grant Gustin confirmed on The Flash cast's Stars in the House appearance that we will get our answers in the new season. "Everything that was kind of left in the air at the end of season six we're going to tie up at the beginning of Season 7 and then continue on with what the writers have planned," Gustin said.
