What happens when the world’s most popular television channel, The CW, comes to the US?

Here’s the rundown: The CW has announced it will air its first new scripted drama series in eight years, titled The Flash, which is expected to air in 2016.

It will follow the exploits of a group of superheroes, including The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Catwoman (Amy Adams), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and follow the rise of the new super-villain, The Reverse-Flash (Jesse L. Martin).

The CW announced The Flash’s series would debut in February 2017, but has since moved the premiere date to May 2018.

The series will follow a group who are part of a team that investigates the mysterious disappearance of their loved ones, including Wally West (Chyler Leigh), Wally’s sister Iris West (Candice Patton), and young Barry Allen (Kal-El), who has been in limbo since his death.

The Flash is the latest addition to the CW’s upcoming roster of DC Comics programming.

The CW also has a number of other scripted series in the works, including Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Arrow, and The Vampire Diaries, as well as a new show called The Originals.
