The CW has released the official synopsis for the premiere episode of The Flash Season 7, which will pick up right where Season 6 left off: with Barry and Iris’ marriage in trouble.
The Season 6 finale of The Flash was cut short due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic halting production, making the would-be next episode the new Season 7 premiere. In the episode, the Flash will take on Mirror Master, Eva McCulloch, with the help of Team Flash, of course. Once she’s defeated, an even more dangerous problem appears and threatens Central City, Team Flash and Barry’s marriage.
Check out the official synopsis below:
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
Showrunner Eric Wallace recently confirmed that things won’t be getting easier for Iris, as she’s in a new and unknown location inside the Mirrorverse, but there is still hope for the couple to make it through the trials that await them.
The season premiere will air in January of 2021 and continue its Tuesday night timeslot at 8 pm ET/PT on the CW. The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Nicolet and Hartley Sawyer.
