'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

'The Flash' Producers Promise Unexpected Detours, Surprising 'Arrow' Drop-Ins

One of fall's flashiest shows is setting the bar high.

The CW's The Flash, a spinoff of the darker and broodier Arrow, takes a lighter spin with Barry Allen, the awkward Central City Police Department forensics expert so enthralled with the Arrow that he'd proclaim himself a fanboy. The change in tone was inevitable. As Arrow viewers glimpsed last fall during the two-hour Barry Allen arc, the man who would don the red suit had a more lively approach to life.

'Arrow' Bosses Reveal Season 3 Secrets: New Romances, Dark Arcs and Big Surprises

Arrow is focusing on identity in season three, and Oliver Queen won't be the only one dealing with issues of internal strife.

"If season one was about Oliver going from vengeance to vigilante and season two was vigilante to hero, season three is about identity," executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It's the first season where this theme of identity is not only about Oliver but is also about all the other characters."

It's a natural progression for The CW comic book drama, which has broadened its focus beyond the titular superhero over the past two seasons as it continues to expand its universe. "It has become an ensemble where it's not just about the Arrow," Guggenheim says. "It feels appropriate that we'll have a theme that will resonate with the whole group."

Guggenheim, along with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, previews season three — which picks up six months after the season-two finale — with THR.
