The Flash

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on The CW

Season Premiere
Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris '(Candice Patton) bond will be stronger than ever in The Flash season 7. When we last left off with the speedy superhero drama, Iris was trapped in the Mirrorverse, Eva McCulloch (Efrat Dor), a.k.a. Mirror Mistress, was free in the real world, and Barry was on the verge of losing his speed. Once all of those dangling issues from the shortened sixth season are resolved, the show will pivot to focusing on exploring how the iconic married couple faces obstacles together. "One of the thematic goals is more stories with Barry and Iris not just together, but Barry and Iris on the same page," showrunner Eric Wallace tells EW. "You'll see that immediately as Graphic Novel #3 starts, and then in Graphic Novel #4 especially, it's all about how Barry and Iris together react to that particular season's big bad." —Chancellor Agard
