The Flash Season 5 Plot: What is it about?

The first season focused on the supernatural murder of Barry Allen’s mother by a “man in a yellow suit” as described by a young Barry. Barry becomes a brilliant but socially awkward crime scene investigator as he grows up and works for the Central City Police Department. Barry is however struck by lightning, which was caused due to the particle accelerator explosion which exposes him to Dark Matter,  rewiring his genetics giving him super speed. Barry vows to use his power for the good of the city and pursues his mother’s murderer, the Reverse-Flash (the man in the yellow suit).

The second season saw the exploration of the Multiverse concept and Barry being tormented by Zoom, an evil speedster from Earth 2 who comes to Earth 1 due to the singularity event in season 1 which ruptures the very fabric of space/time and opens a breach to Earth 2.

The third season saw Barry going back in time to save his mother due to the emotional anguish and torment of his father being murdered by zoom, in doing so he creates an alternate timeline called flashpoint where his parents are still alive. Though he is somewhat able to restore the timeline, this creates new threats, including Savitar and Dr Alchemy.

Season four saw a mysterious speedster girl introduced, being portrayed by Jessica Parker Kennedy, who was speculated to be Dawn Allen, the daughter of Barry Allen. Describing season 5, Helbing said that it was themed on “legacy.” He said, “It’s [about] what’s really important to people, [in terms of] what they leave behind. Is it more important for Barry to be a good father [to Nora], or The Flash?”. Not much is known about the plot for The Flash season 6, but this section will be updated once more details regarding the air date and official synopsis for season 2 surfaces.

The Flash Season 6 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Flash’s fifth season premiered on October 9, 2018, on The CW. Since it is a comics-based show, like Arrow and Smallville, it is expected from Flash to continue for a few more years as there will be plenty of source material to pick it up from. Although the official air date has yet not been revealed, we expect it to be back by late 2019 once it is renewed. If new time slots are set for the Arrowverse shows, they will be updated on the official website of The CW.
