Barry Allen Returns in New Promo for Season Four of ‘The Flash’

October is almost upon us, which means the return of some of our favorite DCTV series, including Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash. As the new season keeps creeping closer and closer we are sure to get some new promos and teasers for each series’ upcoming respective new season. The CW has now released an all-new brief promo for season four of The Flash.

Season three of The Flash concluded with Barry sacrificing himself and giving himself up to the speed force in order bring balance and cease the destruction it was causing in Central City. But of course, we all knew Barry wouldn’t be away for long. This latest promo sees Barry return, though judging from the brief trailer something may be off with the titular hero.

While not much of Barry is shown, he is seen sporting a beard and a new costume is hinted at by his S.T.A.R. Labs buddy, Cisco. The promo also reveals that poor Iris West will have her life threatened yet again, by what appears to be Baron Katana; a villain of The Flash originally introduced in the 1960s.

One thing the promo definitely doesn’t touch on is how exactly Barry was able to be released from the speed force. We’ll have to find that out once the season premieres October 10. In the meantime, check out The CW’s official promo below.
