SDCC 2017: The Flash Press Room





The press room was abuzz for The CW/DC Comics hit show, The Flash, at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.  Everyone was asking the same question:  How long can The Flash last without… The Flash??


Apparently, we are going to find out since the new season will begin with Barry Allen still in the Speedforce and his family and friends trying to cope with his absence.  We talked with cast members Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale as well as executive producer, Todd Helbing about how Team Flash comes together and who steps up.

A newly engaged Grant Gustin talks about how the time in the Speedforce will affect Barry and shares some thoughts on meeting fans.


Candice Patton discusses how Iris becomes team leader and how it is part of her coping mechanism.


Jesse L. Martin speaks about the growing relationship between Joe West and his girlfriend, Cecile, and about how the family dynamic is key to the show.

Carlos Valdes chats about Cisco’s love life heating up and how to keep a cross dimensional relationship going.


Danielle Panabaker shares her thought on the impact her portrayal of Caitlin Snow has on young women and girls.  She also talks about Caitlin’s friendship with Cisco and her struggle with her Killer Frost persona.


We get a “speed interview” from Tom Cavanagh!


Executive producer, Todd Helbing, chats about what stories and villains lie ahead for Barry and Team Flash.



The Flash returns to Tuesdays on The CW in October.

Assignment Editor, East Coast. I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style in the new millennium and have run with it ever since. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, and some slasher pics. I also love comedies -- they make life easier.
