‘The Flash’ is an American superhero television show that airs on The CW Television Network. Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Geoff Johns, the show is based on the DC Comics character Flash/Barry Allen, and is a spin-off of the hugely popular show, ‘Arrow’. The show traces the origin story of Flash, and follows the superhero’s adventures afterwards.
A relatively old show, Season 1 of ‘The Flash’ first made its way to viewers’ screens on October 7, 2014, and the pilot became the most-watched premiere in the history of The CW, after ‘The Vampire Diaries’ in 2009. Season 1 was also received favorably by critics and viewers, prompting the network to renew the show. Season 2, subsequently, made its debut on October 6, 2015 and, a year later, Season 3 followed with a debut on October 4, 2016. ‘The Flash’ returned again with Season 4 on October 10, 2017, and was followed by Season 5 on October 9, 2018. Mid-way through Season 5, on January 31, 2019, The CW renewed the show for a sixth season, and fans and critics can hardly wait for it. Here’s everything we know of Season 6 so far.
