Debuted at DC Fandome, fans across the world were able to see a brand new teaser of The Flash Season 7. Along with the footage, the cast and show runner Eric Wallace hopped on a panel to look back on the original footage shot for Season 6 and what’s to come.
The last time we saw Iris (Candice Patton), she was first stuck in the mirrorverse, then disappeared to who knows where. Eva McCulloch (Ifrat Dor) was able to escape the mirrorverse, all while framing Sue (Natalie Dreyfuss) for her husband’s murder.
“It was a long time coming,” said Patton about Iris’s reporter arc this season. “I think we’ve kind of teased Iris being this ace reporter since Season 1 — it’s always been kind of put on the back burner, so it was a nice treat to finally have it be at the forefront of her character arc in such a male dominated cast.”
Patton also tease Barry and Iris’s reunion in Season 7. “They will find their way back to each other,” she said. “A lot of the romance and chemistry between Grant and I is something even deeper than that. It’s the way we look at each other and the way the characters are written,” she added.
As for The Flash himself, Gustin feels “really lucky” he was given in the first half of Season 6. “[The Last Temptation of Barry Allen Part 1] was a very special episode for me,” he said. “I think it was a really good episode to show the culmination of all of this motion and the conflict boiling over.”
Last season, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) made the tough decision to get rid of his Vibe powers, and Valdes doesn’t think his character regrets that decision.
Newcomers Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and Chester Runk (Brandon McKnight) reflect on their earliest memories of the show when they first joined. “[Danielle Nicolet] was one of the first people that made me feel so welcome,” said. Compton.
“For me, it was more so just meeting everyone and trying to find my spot and my place without interrupting and changing too much.”
Danielle Panabaker appreciates getting to explore the emotional versatility of Killer Frost. “Like Candice was saying earlier, it’s nice to have the variety after six seasons,” she adds.
Filming was shut down in mid-March due to COVID-19, just as the cast was filming Episode 20. The remaining footage will now serve a role in Season 7.
“Even though it’s only footage from one episode, pay attention to the way it’s presented. It’s actually huge spoilers all over the place,” Wallace teased.
The Flash returns to the CW in January 2021.
