Flash Television Series Gets Second Season

Category: Media — By

Good news: it was announced today at the Television Critics Association press tour that The Flash series has been renewed for its second season! Its parent show, Arrow, has also been renewed for a fourth season. Much of the cast and series’ showrunners are appearing at the event in Pasadena, so there are a lot of news and interviews going on this weekend.

In other news, the CW announced a new animated series starring Vixen, but with Flash and the Arrow as supporting characters. Apparently it will be set in the same universe as the two live-action shows.

What do you think of potential crossovers between the Vixen series and The Flash? And are you looking forward to the show’s second season?
