The Flash to make an appearance on Arrow and then head off to his own show

The_Flash_(TV_series)_logoTV2’s hit fantasy series Arrow will introduce a new character in the new season of the show, The Flash.

CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed the news today at the networks executive panel during the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles. “We plan to introduce a recurring character and the origin story of Dr. Barry Allen, who you know as the Flash,” he said. “We do want to expand upon the DC Universe. We think that there are rich characters we can use, and we felt like this was a very organic way to get there.”

Not only that, there is talk The Flash will end up with his own series.

The character is set to appear in episodes 8, 9 and 20, the latter of which will be directed by David Nutter, who directed the Arrow and Smallville pilots as well as Game of Thrones‘ Red Wedding earlier this year.  ”I think [episodes] 8 and 9 will take place in Starling City, which Barry has come to, and episode 20 will be a bigger introduction to Barry’s world,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told a conference call of reporters late Tuesday. Episode 20 will be when viewers “start to see Barry’s world forming in earnest,” he said, teasing the possible introduction of more characters from the Flash world.

The original series of The Flash only ran for a single 22 episode season in 1990.
