More information has emerged about the new characters being introduced in The Flash season two.
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said: “Jay [Garrick] is a little bit more world-weary and he’s seen a lot. He’s been The Flash for a while, so he’s a little further along in his career. He’s seen a lot of darkness, and it’s jaded him a little bit… As much as Barry learns from Jay about being The Flash, Jay learns just as much about being a good person from Barry.”
Another member of the flash family is likely to appear as well. Kreisberg teased that Wally West, played by Keiynan Lonsdale, may become Kid Flash one day.
Another new character is Shantel VanSanten’s Patty Spivot. Patty is described as a science nerd, who loves the science aspect of everything and shares a bond with Barry, but is also not afraid to take on metahumans.
Lest we forget the presence of the big bad that is Zoom: “Reverse Flash felt like a warrior, and what we wanted this time was something more akin to a monster. When you finally see Zoom, he looks like a demon, and it’s really scary. It’s more horrific.”
Kreisberg is very good at getting our hopes up. We’ll have to see if this follows through.
The Flash season 2 will air from 6th October
