The Flash season 2 will introduce the Multiverse

While the first season of The Flash introduced an impressive array of villains and shorelines, it sounds as though the second run will be even more ambitious, with star Grant Gustin revealing that plans are afoot to introduce the Multiverse…

With the final episode of the first season involving our hero travelling back in time, it seems that all will not run smoothly, leading to the creation of a parallel timeline that will be explored further next season…

"What’s fun about this show is that there’s going to be multiple timelines as we move forward," says Gustin to TV Guide. "I think we’re going to start showing Earth-One and Earth-Two in the near future. There will be kind of different dimensions going on."

All of which promises to be fairly testing for the showrunners, as acknowledged by Gustin's co-star, Carlos Valdes. "It gets a little Rubik’s Cube-y in terms of keeping consistency between all these timelines and whatnot," says Valdes, "but the writers have their stuff together. If I were to trust anyone, it would be them." The second season of The Flash is set to air in the fall, with an exact date to be confirmed.
