The premiere of The Flash season 3 is only 5 weeks away and co-showrunner Todd Hellbing gives us a hint at what we can expect to see. Todd was asked by TV Line about the possibility of Francine West (Vanessa A. Williams), Iris’ and Wally’s mother, returning to the show since Barry reset the timeline at the end of season 2. Hellbing responded with the following…
“There are different characters that you will see, some [that have] passed, [there is] a lot of Easter egg stuff that’s a lot of fun.”
From the teaser trailer we know that Barry’s mother and father are alive and well again but perhaps other characters such as Eddie Thawne and the original Harrison Wells from earth one could still be alive in the altered timeline. However, it was said by one of the executive producers that the ‘Flashpoint’ arc would only last a few episodes so, whoever ends up being alive, I wouldn’t expect them to be alive for very long.
The Flash season 3 premieres on October 4th!
