The Flash: Will we see Tom Cavanagh return for season 3?
The Flash’s season 2 finale last week ended up with major twist which will lead to major implications in the next season of the CW series. Barry Allen‘s decision to go back in time and save his mother, Nora Allen, from the Reverse Flash will lead to a major shakeup in the upcoming season. It looks like the producers of the show are pointing at the famous comic book storyline Flashpoint. If this turn out to be true, the viewers would be treated with many surprises. It will also be interesting to see which characters will return for season 3.
According to an Entertainment Weekly report, Tom Cavanagh will return as a series regular for season 3. Although, it is unclear as to which role will he dawn. The report talked on this issue “Consider this: If the show does indeed move forward with Flashpoint, then the Reverse-Flash never killed Earth-1 Harrison Wells and his wife, meaning we could see the original Wells next season. Maybe. Hopefully” Tom Cavanagh’s Reverse Flash in the season 1 had received rave reviews from the viewers and his role as Harrison ‘Harry’ Wells from Earth 2 in the Season 2 is also admired, so bringing him back for the next season seems like an obvious choice. Who would not want to see him return as the Reverse Flash? There were certain subtle hints throughout the season that the show was going to take a shot at the Flashpoint Storyline. For example, in the season premiere, Harrison Wells tells Barry Allen that he will never be happy and in the comics, that is what Reverse Flash told Barry Allen before Flash went back in time and saved his mother. CW will face a tough task in recreating the adaptation of the Flashpoint as they do not have rights over many the characters showed in the comic.
Barry’s decision is one that should have ramifications across all The CW DC shows, including Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and potentially even Supergirl as it moves networks for its second season. Details on the next season is being kept under tight wraps and it will just be a matter of time before we come to light that we will see Flashpoint storyline in the upcoming season.
The Flash returns for Season 3 in October on The CW.
