‘The Flash’ season 2 spoilers: More on Professor Zoom, Jay Garrick revealed!

Flash -

The second season of “The Flash” is not going to be premiering on The CW for two more weeks, but when it does turn up, it feels like there is almost a completely new universe for the series to explore.

If you order the first season now iTunes, there will be a new season 2 featurette uploaded to go along with it that includes a pretty wide array of new nuggets on the series ahead. In it, executive producer Gabrielle Stanton teases heavily the presence of Earth-2 and everything awesome that comes along with it. Most notably, we’re going to see one of the biggest villains to date in Professor Zoom. This is someone who is stronger, sharper, and faster than Barry Allen, and someone still largely shrouded in mystery. While his name may be spoken in early episodes of the show, it may not be until later in the season when you actually see him.

Meanwhile, there is a lot said about Jay Garrick. In the featurette Stanton makes it clear that in some ways, Jay is going to be serving as a new mentor for Barry in the place of Harrison Wells; he is someone Barry may be able to trust more, which is good because trust is going to be a big part of the story this time. After being betrayed by Dr. Wells we are going to see a side of this character who is somewhat insecure and completely guarded. He’s going to push a few people away from him, only to later realize that he will need his friends and family in order to succeed against some of the villains coming up.

Oh, and for all the romantics, don’t worry about Barry and Iris: While there is another love interest coming in Patty Spivot, she is going to be a big part of the season and his story.
