The preview of the 6th season
In the next season there will be 23 episodes and they will reveal all the secrets of the previous seasons’ finale. The action takes place six months after Flash has left Central City for his own safety. But without a hero life doesn’t stop: his team maintains order. Wally, Cisco, Joe, Iris and others never stop fighting with met-villains and they are trying to find a way to return Barry from the Speed Force. As a result Flash and his team will find themselves in an alternate reality created by Scarlet Speedster.
Many characters will be changed or transformed and the number of enemies will only grow. In addition to Captain Cold, Magenta and Mirror Master there will be a new supervillain. The main bad guy of the upcoming season is a Music Meister who will give a lot of trouble to Barry and his people.
In March 2014 the shooting of the pilot episode began: two cities were chosen as a film set. Portland and Vancouver became epicenter of the struggle between good and evil for some time. It’s not easy to make a fantastic show: many things that the viewers see on screen is the result of many hours of shooting and competent work of the special effects team. For example, the battle scenes are filmed in the pavilion and in the process of mounting their figures are superimposed on separately taken landscape shots.
To show the incredible speed of the main hero hundreds of people had to stop for minutes while Flash was imitating running. The extra attention should be paid to his costume: he is dressed in leather costume with elastic inserts, it took the main character 40 minutes to put it on, and the mask was attached with the help of special glue. It’s hard to imagine how difficult it was to take it all off.
An essential condition of the series success is a close-knit and professionally chosen cast. The producers decided not to risk and choose only best of the best: all the actors have played in many films. Most of the cast has worked on the series «Supernatural» and «The Flash» back in 1990. It helped to work more effectively.
The leading role of Barry-Flash was played by a rising star – Grunt Gusting. He is known by his roles in the series «Glee» and «A Mother’s Nightmare», so he did his job perfectly.
Candice Patton, who played in a famous show «Grey’s Anatomy», transformed brilliantly into iris West, Barry’s friend.
The role of Barry’s ally – Cisco – was played by Carlos Valdés – a Columbian actor – and this is his only significant role at the moment.
Antagonists of the season are also very charismatic and talented: Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Tom Cavanagh, famous for his role in sitcom «Scrubs», turned into insidious Professor Zoom.
