Fans of The CW’s The Flash got their first glimpse of Season 5 at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday night and it looks like Barry Allen and Team Flash are in for a wild ride.
The CW series released its first look at the fifth season with a trailer at Comic-Con, fans got their first glimpse at the new villain threatening Team Flash: Cicada. As well as learning Nora Allen is stuck in Barry’s time period due to a big mistake.
“Nora shouldn’t be here,” Barry tells Iris. “She could Marty McFly herself right out of existence. She needs to be with her parents 30 years from now—not us now.”
Barry then goes to Nora and asks her to tell him the truth.
“I made a big, big mistake,” she tells him.
The Flash Ring also makes its debut in the trailer when Barry said he doesn’t have a suit. This looks like we are getting the old Flash suit that Barry used in the first two seasons of the show.
Elsewhere in the trailer, we get our first glimpse at the newest villain. Cicada is seen going to an empty apartment breathing heavily ala Dark Vader. He sits down and puts a lightning bolt dagger on the desk, which seems to be drawing energy from the television.
In the comics, Cicada was struck by lightning and can now absorb the life force of others. He has a cult following and his followers are on a mission to kill everyone who has been saved by The Flash.
The Flash airs on The CW in the US and on Sky One in the UK. Season 5 premieres on October 9.
