The Flash TV Series Opts for Series Pilot

CW and DC has gone under the record to state that the upcoming The Flash TV series starring Grant Gustin will air as a pilot as opposed to the original ‘backdoor’ of appearing in an episode of ‘Arrow’.


Originally, Gustin’s Barry Allen was slated to appear again in episode 20 of Arrow Season 2, as the scarlet speedster. Prior to this Gustin will guest-star for a two-episode arc which is now being shot.


According to CBR, the change up was caused by the positive fan reaction to the casting of the actor for “The Fastest Man Alive” as well as the anticipation for his December appearance in the hit TV show.

Tune in on December 4 and December 11 for the Arrow episodes “The Scientist” and “Three Ghosts” respectively.
