The CW has released a trailer for the fifth season of its DC superhero series The Flash at the San Diego Comic-Con International.
The trailer focuses largely on Iris and Barry’s time-travelling speedster daughter Nora and her relationship with the couple, as well as teasing the season’s new supervillain Cicada, a man out for vengeance by destroying every metahuman. Cicada will be played by American Pie’s Chris Klein.
During the panel Tom Cavanagh revealed that he is set to play Sherloque Wells, an intelligent but untrustworthy character, while executive producer Todd Helbing also teased some new and returning villains for the series including a Gorilla Grodd and King Shark team-up episode and a younger version of The Rogues.

“After outthinking The Thinker, you’d hope that Barry Allen aka The Flash (Grant Gustin) might have some down time to contemplate his future with his new wife, Iris (Candice Patton). But with their speedster daughter from the future, Nora (new series regular Jessica Parker Kennedy), already grown and a part of their lives, they’ve now got to face Central City’s newest menace — the DC Super-Villain Cicada!”
The Flash season 5 premieres on October 9th on The CW.
