‘The Flash’ season 3: When could Grant Gustin, cast return to The CW with new episodes?

FlashTonight, “The Flash” is literally running out of time when it comes to season 2. A whopping 23 episodes have come and gone including the finale, and now, the hiatus begins. We’re never going to complain about getting this many episodes of television a year, but we’re not going to live: This is a lot.

So when is season 3 going to come on the air? It’s too early to give a precise date, but we can give you at least a small timeframe. Typically, CW shows tend to launch in the first two weeks of October, so look for Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, and the rest of the cast in action either on October 4 or on the 11th. Unless something changes, we feel confident that the show will return at some point in here. We do know that it will remain on Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, which should not come as a shock since this is the network’s marquee series at this point. Everything else effectively revolves around it and what it brings to the table.

What will be different for “The Flash” this fall is that it will be a part of an enormous superhero universe that includes “Supergirl” on Mondays, “Arrow” on Wednesdays, and “Legends of Tomorrow” on Thursdays. Basically, a good 40% of The CW this fall will be shows that are tied together in some way by DC Comics and executive producer Greg Berlanti.

As far as what we want to see next season story-wise, that is something we’ll discuss more on Wednesday. In general, we don’t think this is a show that needs to change much to win us over.
