The CW has released the first teaser trailer for The Flash season four. The trailer, which teases the return of Barry Allen, offers a look at the entire team and of course, the reunion between Barry and Iris.
The teaser makes one thing very clear, Barry Allen isn’t the same guy he once was. Just from this small teaser, it’s obvious that Barry’s time in the Speed Force has changed him, and it might take some time for The Flash to return to his usual, heroic ways.
Watch the teaser below:
Showrunner Todd Helbing recently told TVLine that “Barry’s time in the speed force let him deal with all of the baggage that he had the last three seasons, everything with his mom and his dad and Flashpoint. So when he comes out, he’s sort of left that all behind. It does really allow Barry and Grant [Gustin], in a lot of ways, to play these scenes with a lot more lightness to it,” Helbing continues. “The combination of the scripts being a lot more fun and more joke-ridden, and just the state that Barry’s in when he comes out, it’s really changed the show quite a bit. There’s definitely a comedic tonal shift that we’re really loving right now.”
The Flash Season 4 premieres Tuesday, October 10!
