As big fans of ARROW, we’ve been eagerly awaiting spin-off show THE FLASH finding a UK home. As expected, the show has now been confirmed to air on Sky1. The exact premiere date has yet to be revealed, although it’s likely to be not too far behind the show’s October 7th US debut.
The official word from Sky reads:
From the executive producers and creative team behind hit series ARROW, THE FLASH follows the high-speed adventures of the fastest man alive.
Central City Police scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin, Glee) has been standing still emotionally since the day his mother was murdered and his father unjustly jailed for the crime. But when an unexpected and devastating accident at the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator facility strikes Barry, he finds himself suddenly charged with the incredible power to move at super speeds.
Barry sets out to use his newfound superhero powers to stop crime. Working alongside his adopted father Detective West, Barry uses his superhuman abilities to help the people of Central City and stop the rogues' gallery of villains, many of whom have also been altered by the particle accelerator explosion.
THE FLASH is coming soon to Sky 1 HD.
