• “The Flash” Season 7 premieres Feb. 23, 2021 on The CW
  • Barry Allen will tackle the Mirror Master arc, first.
  • Danielle Nicolet reveals information about the villains of the upcoming season.

"The Flash" Season 7 is scheduled to premiere on The CW in February 2021 following the sixth season that was cut short due to COVID-19 lockdown. The highly-anticipated installment will bring back some of the popular villains of the series.

The major spoiler about the series’ villains was dropped by series star Danielle Nicolet, who plays the role of Cecile Horton, during the presentation at the virtual CCXP in Brazil last weekend. Speaking at the panel, she revealed that “some favorites from the past” are returning for the forthcoming season. However, she refrained from revealing the names of these baddies.

"You know we’re not allowed to tell you secrets about the season. But I will say I think it's a reasonable assumption that, yeah we always have time travel, on some level, happening," Nicolet said, as quoted by Comicbook. "I mean, I can tell you this, there are going to be some favorites from the past, some bad guys favorites that may be paying a visit or two this season so I'll leave it up to you to speculate on how they’re going to get to us."

Meanwhile, the publication notes that the big bad Godspeed, who was last seen in Season 5 of the series, will return for an interesting story arc. The teaser was dropped by the showrunner Eric Wallace at the DC FanDome panel this summer.

But before fans will get to see these baddies return, the show has a lot to catch up with. “The Flash” Season 6 ended abruptly with episode 19 titled “Success Is Assured” leaving the Mirror Iris arc incomplete. The show left at a low point for the Scarlet Speedster, who lost his powers before he could free his wife Iris West-Allen from the Mirror Universe.

Fans are assured that the show will be dealing with this story arc as soon as it returns for a new season. As per Screen Rant, the network has dropped the titles of the first five episodes and it hints at what’s coming next. The first episode is titled “All’s Well That Ends Well,” the second is called "The Speed of Thought,” the third one is named “Mother,” the fourth carries the title “Central City Strong,” and the fifth is called “Fear Me.”

Considering the names of the episodes, the outlet is speculating that Nash Wells will help Barry solve the Speed Force issue during the first hour of the season. Moving forward to the second segment of the season, fans can expect the speedster to regain his powers. Meanwhile, “Mother” is a reference to Eva McCulloch, the Mirror Master. Therefore, expect the Mirror Universe story arc to be extended at least for the first three episodes. This episode could likely feature the conclusion to the Mirror Universe story.

"The Flash" Season 7 premieres Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021, on The CW.
