Now so much is in the flux at The Flash, all of it is born of the pandemic pressing pause on its production. But, now what might that the delay mean for the seventh season’s new ‘Graphic Novel’ arcs?
The sixth season of The CW’s number one series introduced what then-incoming show-runner Eric Wallace dubbed it’s Graphic Novel’ format, watching at the very first eight of their episodes had to set the stage for the ‘Crisis on the infinite Earths’ crossover event and they were a thus a bit of standalone.
Then as such, ‘Graphic Novel’ number one has its own Big Bad in Dr. Ramsey Rosso also known as Bloodwork, while the Graphic Novel number 2 which had kicked off post-crisis focused on Eva McCulloh’s evolution into a brand new Mirror Master.
Then the abrupt stoppage of the production in the mid-March left The Flash with three written but uncompleted Season six episodes. And those of the episodes will now, in some form, leadoff Season 7, now triggering a ripple effect which will alter the rollout of the next, new Graphic Novels.
Now because of this The Flash, there is a huge twist at the very end of every season, and now that twist is now kind of coming in the mid of the season of their show. This was revealed by Wallace to TV Line. He also said that it has really affected their storytelling for all of their seventh season, and the seventh season of the show is hoped to be premiering in January 2021.
He also though chooses to see the ripple effect as a ‘yet another blessing coming in a disguise’, akin to how the Crisis drove the first half of the sixth season of the show. In the future, there are going to be more Graphic Novel, and this was assured by Wallace himself, and also said that they are not going to be broken up in the way that he thinks the folks expect.
