The Flash Costume Gets An Update For Season Two

The CW has released a new image of The Flash costume that will appear in season 2.

Following a pretty epic first season finale, “The Flash” season two aims to expand the small screen DC Universe. In fact, the plan is to go even further as Gustin previously revealed that season two will explore the multiverse. There’s also quite a few guest stars in store as, just last week, we learned that Michael Ironside will appear as Lewis Snart, the father of Wenworth Miller’s Leonard Snart (aka Captain Cold) and Peyton List’s Lisa Snart (aka Golden Glider).

Teddy Sears (“Masters of Sex,” “Raising the Bar”), meanwhile, is set to play Jay Garrick, well known to comic book fans as the first DC Comics character to take on the mantle of The Flash, while Shantel VanSanten will play police officer Patty Spivot, obsessed with metahumans and partners with Jesse L. Martin’s Detective Joe West.

Based on the characters from DC Comics, “The Flash” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series returns for season two on Tuesday, October 6, at 8/7c on The CW.
