Warner Brothers and ViacomCBS are shopping around the idea of selling The CW. What this means for all the DCTV properties is uncertain.

The Flash Season 8: Armageddon Special Event Revealed

We have some exciting news today coming to us from the CW, who have sent the first details on what we can expect for The Flash's 8th season. If you recall, when the show returns in the fall, they were going to do so with a special event: a 5-episode crossover-type event that could potentially bring in characters from other shows. It's meant to be a new type of crossover, one that would be smaller-scale than Crisis, but still just as action-packed. Today the event has been revealed as Armageddon, and the logline gives us an idea of what to expect:

A powerful alien threat arrives on Earth under mysterious circumstances and Barry (Grant Gustin), Iris (Candice Patton) and the rest of Team Flash are pushed to their limits in a desperate battle to save the world.  But with time running out, and the fate of humanity at stake, Flash and his companions will also need to enlist the help of some old friends if the forces of good are to prevail.

So who exactly will be the old friends joining Team Flash for these episodes? It's quite the stellar cast of: Javicia Leslie as Batwoman, Brandon Routh as The Atom, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Chyler Leigh as Sentinel, Kat McNamara as Mia Queen and Osric Chau as Ryan Choi. It's a good and solid cast of heroes to help save the world, but they won't be the only ones. Tom Cavanagh and Neal McDonough will also be back as Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash and Damien Darhk, respectively.

Eric Wallace, the Executive Producer of The Flash, also released a statement regarding what we can look forward to:

Simply put, these are going to be some of the most emotional FLASH episodes ever.  Plus, there are some truly epic moments and huge surprises that await our fans.  And we’re doing them on a scale that's bigger and bolder than our traditional FLASH episodes. So yes, ARMAGEDDON is a lot more than just another graphic novel storyline.  It’s going to be a true event for FLASH and ARROWVERSE fans, old and new.  Honestly, I can’t wait for audiences to see what we’ve got planned.
