You can run, but you can't hide - not from creepy villains and certainly not from your own daughter. Grant Gustin's Barry Allen just finished running circles around The Thinker (Neil Sandilands), but The Flash season 5 panel at San Diego Comic-Con now brings word of his next great foe.

The Flash season 5 will also see Jessica Parker Kennedy (Barry and Iris' speedster daughter from the future) and Hartley Sawyer (the incredibly stretchy Ralph Dibney) promoted to series regulars. According to The CW's press release, "next season's scourge of Central City" is a "grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans".

Chris Klein, known for his roles in Election and American Pie, will play the primary antagonist in the upcoming fifth season of The Flash.


In the DC Comics canon, Cicada is the criminal moniker of David Hersch, who killed his wife and later, when attempting to take his own life, was struck by lightning and granted the ability to suck the life force out of other people.

In the DC mythology, Cicada was a mysterious cult leader who aimed to murder anybody that The Flash had ever saved, using trademark lightning bolt daggers. Here's the official synopsis for The Flash season 5. Seemingly the only bright spot in all this? For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns that Barry Allen has become.The Flash. Heck, not even Cisco Ramon circa 2018 can figure out how to fit an entire costume inside of a piece of jewelry.
