Enter the War Zone in a New Flash Season 5 Trailer

The fifth season premieres on Tuesday, October 9

The CW has brought online the new The Flash Season 5 trailer, which they’ve titled “War Zone.” The preview should get you ready for the Tuesday, October 9 premiere!

After outthinking The Thinker, you’d hope that Barry Allen aka The Flash (Grant Gustin) might have some down time to contemplate his future with his new wife, Iris (Candice Patton). But with their speedster daughter from the future, Nora (new series regular Jessica Parker Kennedy), already grown and a part of their lives, they’ve now got to face Central City’s newest menace — the DC Super-Villain Cicada!

The Flash Season 5 pits Team Flash against yet another formidable adversary, the show’s second non-speedster Big Bad. Chris Klein (Election, Oz, American Pie) has signed on as series regular to play next season’s scourge of Central City, Cicada. A grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic — one metahuman at a time.

Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Todd Helbing, Sarah Schechter and Eric Wallace. The Flash is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
