The Flash is coming to Arrow this year with the possibility of the character being spun off into a separate series.
CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed the news today at the networks executive panel during the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles. “We plan to introduce a recurring character and the origin story of Dr. Barry Allen, who you know as the Flash,” he said. “We do want to expand upon the DC Universe. We think that there are rich characters we can use, and we felt like this was a very organic way to get there.”
The character is set to appear in episodes 8, 9 and 20, the latter of which will be directed by David Nutter, who directed the Arrow and Smallville pilots as well as Game of Thrones‘ Red Wedding earlier this year. “I think [episodes] 8 and 9 will take place in Starling City, which Barry has come to, and episode 20 will be a bigger introduction to Barry’s world,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told a conference call of reporters late Tuesday. Episode 20 will be when viewers “start to see Barry’s world forming in earnest,” he said, teasing the possible introduction of more characters from the Flash world.
All three episodes will be written by executive producer Greg Berlanti, Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment.

Arrow fans at PaleyFest got quite a show on Saturday night. Though the audience didn’t get to see an entire upcoming episode, the sizzle reel proved enticing enough, providing a number of big revelations (read: spoilers).
The most shocking reveal happened during a conversation between The Huntress and Detective Lance, but you’ll have to wait until the episode airs to find out what it is… or check back in with Spoiler Room.
Unlike many of the other panels here, there were only four actors from the show on hand, and much of the conversation was dominated by the three producers, but the audience didn’t seem to mind. Moderated by DC Comics’ Geoff Johns (who has also written for the CW series), the conversation was an in-depth look at the world of comics and the inspirations drawn for Arrow. One audience member even stood up to ask if Stephen Amell was ready for the commitment required to star in a genre show. He said he’s trying, and often looks to fellow cast mate and genre show veteran John Barrowman (who was not in attendance) for guidance.
