Well, that was fast! Deadline has reported that The CW has picked up The Flash, set to premiere this fall. As previously reported, the pilot for the superhero series featured Carlos Valdes, who has gone from Once ensemble member to TV superhero, and stars Glee’s Grant Gustin.
In addition to Valdes and Gustin, the cast of the Arrow spinoff includes Broadway alums Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh and John Wesley Shipp, as well as Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Michelle Harrison and Patrick Sabongui.
The Flash follows Barry Allen (Gustin), a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may connect to a tragic event from his past.
