Season One of The Flash ends with a bang and we get hints of Jay Garrick (Flash from Earth-Two) making an appearance. That same winged helmet shows up in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow too, building a crucial connection. We do know that the alternate universe theory will be the bedrock of the second season of Flash since Barry himself runs into a vortex that threatens to create a space rift above Central City.
In SDCC 2015, Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex) is confirmed to be playing role of Jay Garrick and another new face is Shantel VanSanten playing the role of Detective Patty Spivot, new partner of Detective Joe West. The principal villain of the new season will be Professor Zoom and Wally West (Kid Flash) is going to show up in the upcoming season too. Executive Producer Greg Berlanti hinted that the story picks up a few months after the events of Season One finale.
Meanwhile Reverse-Flash or Dr. Harrison Wells might be sticking around for Season Two, after all the story involves the multiverse so it is possible the characters will meet another version of Dr. Wells from another world. The actor of Flash hinted:
“Wells and Barry won’t be interacting at all, right out of the gate. Wells is on the show, but we’re introducing the multiverse concept so that’s why he still exists somewhere.”
Actor Grant Gustin also hints that his character will have a new mentor (most probably Jay Garrick) and Flash will discover a new ability while pushing for ever greater speed in the process. The actor is being playfully vague about it:
“I mentioned he’ll have a new mentor in Season 2. In the second episode they’re already working together and in the second episode, Barry does something new with his powers that is really exciting to me. We’ve never done it before. It’s pretty different than anything else we’ve done.”
When asked about the new powers, he answered, “It involves lightning.”
The series is set for a speedy return on 6 October 2015.
