Last week The CW announced that it has renewed its two DC Entertainment TV series The Flash and Arrow for second and fourth seasons respectively, and IGN caught up with the Scarlett Speedster himself Grant Gustin, during which the star shared his thoughts on the early renewal for his hit show.
“I hate to say – it’s not like we expected it, but it’s also not surprising me, I guess. It’s why I was so excited to get to be a part of this early on. I knew it was a character that was long overdue, and that if they did the effects right, which seemingly they were going to do with early stuff they showed me… I’ve been excited since the very beginning because I knew that we had the potential for this type of success. We all feel really fortunate and I’m having so much fun. I’m just glad I get to do more of it. It all feels like one, big experience thus far. I don’t think I’m going to really be able to look back and appreciate each little moment until this first season’s over. Maybe even later down the road, I don’t know. It’s all just one big thing that I’m kind of a day at a time right now. It’s hard to look at the big picture.”
With a Supergirl TV show in development at CBS courtesy of Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti, there’s been talk of a cross-network crossover between the DC characters, and while CBS chairman Nina Tassler has played down the talk, Gustin has admitted he’s open to appearing alongside Kara Zor-El: “Supergirl, yeah. It also is exhausting to think about. But, if they’re like, “Hey we’re doing Supergirl now and we want the Flash to be on a Supergirl episode,” I’m going to get excited about that and then after that worry about how we’re going to make it work. But yeah, of course! I’m down. I’m down for any type of cool crossover as long as we can make it work.”
