The Flash season 5 trailer: There's a new villain in town

SDCC 2018: The CW's THE FLASH The Flash season 5: Chris Klein cast as villain Cicada

The Flash will air season 5 on The CW beginning October 9 at 8 p.m. Grant Gustin's Barry Allen just finished running circles around The Thinker (Neil Sandilands), but The Flash season 5 panel at San Diego Comic-Con now brings word of his next great foe. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris' speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a "big mistake", things are anything but status quo. Cicada is a cult leader in the pages of DC Comics, but Todd Helbing says that won't be the case on the show.

Neither the newlywed duo nor anyone else on Team Flash actually knew Nora's true identity until the season 4 finale, during which "Mystery Girl" helped the Flash save Central City and then admitted that she was his daughter.

If anything, the season finale we witnessed this past May preserved The Flash's annual tradition of going out on insane cliffhangers.

"His powers present a challenge for Team Flash that they've never had to deal with before."

Returning Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanaugh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Nicolet, Hartley Sawyer and Jessica Parker Kennedy.
