No longer is The Flash relegated to being a punchline among his DC heroes brethren. Sure, Batman and Superman have movie franchises, but will they ever get to enter the exclusive pantheon of the CW heartthrobs? Unlikely: they’re much too old. Grant Gustin, however, is still in his prime, entering his sixth season as Barry Allen, aka The Flash

Season 5 ended quite ominously, after a big fight with his nemesis Reverse Flash, and the death of a fan favorite. Plus, plucky detective turned police captain David Singh sleuthed out Barry Allen’s secret identity. Still, the monumental crisis that The Flash traveled through space-time to prevent is no longer landing in 2049: it’s happening in 2019. Talk about bad timing. As always, The Flash will kick-off with a bang when the series returns October 8.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch The Flash.
