‘The Flash’ S04 To Be “Less Dark”, Aims To “Have More Fun Again”

This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, fans were treated to a bunch of new footage of their favorite CW shows, one such being The Flash. While it isn’t coming back until this fall, we have a good deal of information to work with so far, and after this weekend, we have some more. Showrunner Todd Helbing spoke about the tone of the upcoming season, and compared it to the dark, heavier tone of season 3. Check out what he had to say below!

Last year, once we showed Iris die in the future, to keep up that doom and gloom, it becomes a burden, and not just on us writing-wise, on the show and it just sort of had this pall over the season that I think we didn’t expect to be so heavy. I’m not trying to say anything bad about season 3. I love season 3, and I love Savitar, and I love the story we told, but I think that’s about as dark as I ever want to go with the show. So yeah, I think that was a conscious effort of ours to really go back to everybody enjoyed being on this team and with each other, and make The Flash have fun again. I’m really excited about the scripts so far; they’re really, really funny.

Season 3 was a very dark set of episodes for team Flash indeed. Between Savitar, Iris, and H.R, there was a lot going on. Season 4 can bring it back around, especially with the return of Barry.

Are you excited to see more fun in Season 4? Did you enjoy the dark tones of Season 3? Let us know in the comments below!
