Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Todd Helbing. Naturally, they make a Back to the Future joke about the situation before the trailer evolves into a unsafe mystery.

There's a new bad guy headed for Central City. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns that Barry Allen has become.The Flash. Here's the official synopsis for The Flash season 5.

And speaking of time travel, Nora, who carries the superhero moniker "XS" in season 5, also previously told the crime-fighting crew that she slipped up and made a huge mistake that many Flash fans believe has something to do with her bounding through the barriers of time. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?

Chris Klein, known for his roles in Election and American Pie, will play the primary antagonist in the upcoming fifth season of The Flash. The actor has signed on as a series regular to play next season's main nemesis, Cicada.

Well, as you can see in the trailer just screened for those fortunate enough to be at San Diego Comic-Con (above), the Scarlet Speedster has put his own spin on "Take Your Daughter to Work Day". The evildoer is described as a grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic, one metahuman at a time.

Gustin, Patton and TV daughter Jessica Parker Kennedy then detail which insta-parent is most eager to get to know Nora - and which of them, in turn, the speedster from the future is "pumped" to meet.
