Team Flash prepares for the crisis in the latest The Flash season six trailer

Barry Allen’s gift is speed but his true power is his love, so states the latest extended trailer for season six of The CW’s The Flash. That love is powerful & has gotten team Flash through many events, but can it stop a crisis?

That is the question the team will be tasked with, among others, as the countdown to the Crisis on Infinite Earths looms over the series (and numerous other of the Arrowverse shows) ahead of the December and January running crossover event. This trailer focuses more on Barry and his team’s battle to try and stop the outcome of the Crisis that sees Barry vanish forever, a fate they’ve known about since season one.

Included are numerous returning familiar faces, as well as some new threats that will rise to cause chaos in the Flash’s world.

Team Flash spent the last year dealing with not one but two Cicadas, the return of Eobard Thawne (a.k.a. Reverse Flash), and the surprise arrival from the future of Barry and Iris’s daughter Nora West-Allen, (a.k.a. XS). The stakes were higher than ever during the season 5 finale, which culminated in Barry and Iris losing their daughter after only just getting to know her. How will they deal with saying goodbye to their speedster daughter, and what does Thawne’s escape mean for Team Flash?

The Flash returns to The CW on October 08. Crises on Infinite Earth’s stretches across Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with three of the five episodes ariing in mid-December and the last two held off till shows return in mid-January.

The Pierce family is ready to strike in the new Black Lightning season three poster

Lightning strikes for a third time as The CW’s Black Lightning prepares to enter it’s upcoming third season in around a month’s time. While those behind the series are keeping pretty quiet about what folks might expect in the new season, a brand new poster has been unveiled.

Shared on Twitter, the poster showcases Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning with images of his surrogate father Peter Gambi, daughters Anissa Pierce/Thunder & Jennifer Pierce/Lightning as well as ex-wife Lynn Stewart within him. The family looks prepared to defend Freeland once more from all that will befall their hometown.

Alongside any huge changes set to come with his new season, this year will see the Cress Williams played Jefferson/Black Lightning finally join the Arrowverse at large.

Since debut the show has been its own thing within the multiverse but come December/January at least Jefferson will find his way into the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover that will bring all the current show casts as well as various actors from other former DC related projects including John Wesley Shipp, Burt Ward and Tom Welling among others.

Black Lightning returns on October 7.
