About The Flash

For season eight of The Flash, Barry Allen aka The Flash (series star Grant Gustin) will be sporting some fancy new footwear - a pair of gold boots! Although the Speedster's supersuit has been evolving over the years, the iconic gold boots from DC comic books had not materialized until now. When asked about the upgrade at DC FanDome, Gustin described them as "the final element that's been missing. I've loved all the versions of The Flash suit we've had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books - with the exception of those gold boots! I've always felt that those boots would be the final touch." Barry Allen's life changed completely when his mother died in a freak accident and his innocent father was convicted of her murder. Orphaned Barry later becomes Detective Joe West. Now a crime-scene investigator, his dedication to learn the truth about his mother's death drives him to follow up on every new scientific advancement and urban legend. When his latest obsession - a particle accelerator heralded as a world-changing invention - causes an explosion, it creates a freak storm and Barry is struck by lightning. He awakes from a coma nine months later with the power of superspeed. When he learns that others who have gained powers use them for evil, he dedicates himself to protecting the innocent, while still trying to solve the older mystery. Series was renewed for an 8th season on February 04, 2021. Season 8 is expected to be released in 2021-22 season.

Set 20 years in the future and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment in partnership with CBC and Hulu, ENDLINGS (12x30) is the empowering story of four kids in foster care who discover they're not alone in the universe, even though sometimes it can feel like they are. After the death of her mate, Tuko becomes the last elephant in existence--what biologists call an endling. Her endling status summons to Earth a mysterious Alien who is on an intergalactic quest to save the last members of near-extinct species. After Tuko is collected, the Alien's ship malfunctions and sends it on a crash course with the farm where teenagers Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Johnny (Edison Grant), Tabby (Michela Luci) and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) live with their foster dad, Mr. Leopold (Neil Crone). Before crashing, the Alien releases all of its cosmic collection into the fields and wilderness surrounding the property. This kicks off a high-action life-altering mission to retrieve these fantastical creatures before the local police, Tuko's caretaker (Oyin Oladejo), or a secretive industrialist (Lisa Ryder) can. Along the way, four discarded teens discover that "endling" doesn't have to mean the end; it can also mean a new beginning. From the Emmy Award winning Creator/Director J.J. Johnson (Annedroids; Dino Dan/Dino Dana), Endlings is a sci-fi action adventure series about four foster kids who come together to save fantastical creatures from across the galaxy who are just like them: alone.
