Big things are happening on The Flash. After the daughter of Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) made herself known in the Season 4 finale, she’s getting very involved with the team and their superhero antics. Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) already has her own superhero suit to match her speedster powers and, based on the first batch of photos released from the new season, is wasting no time in jumping into action.
The new photos show Nora as her alter ego XS, plenty of looks at the reunion with her mom and dad, plus working with the Flash against Gridlock–a new meta baddie that will be introduced in the Season 5 premiere. Other photos include various members of the team and the return of Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), as well as Iris holding her newborn half-sister.
There are some things missing from the photos, though. First and foremost, the new version of Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), named Sherloq, is nowhere to be seen. That leaves fans with no idea what Cavanagh’s latest iteration of Wells will look like.
There’s also no tease of the big bad for the new season, Cicada (Chris Klein). In the comics, Cicada leads a cult of people that kill those the Flash saves. It remains to be seen how he will be portrayed on the show, though showrunner Todd Helbing told GameSpot, “What we do on our show is always inspired by it. So we’ve changed a lot of it to create a story that, or a villain that’s formidable in a way that we haven’t done before.”
The Flash returns Tuesday, October 9, at 8 PM ET on The CW. Before then, check out our teases and spoilers for everything you can expect from Season 5.
