Following the hugely positive response to Grant Gustin playing Barry Allen aka The Flash in the hit The CW television series Arrow, work quickly began on a The Flash television series, which will premiere in the Fall. It was expected that we would see the occasional crossover between Arrow and The Flash and it looks like we will get one sooner than expected.
Actress Emily Bett Rickards plays the role of Felicity Smoak in Arrow and it looks like she will be one of the first Arrow characters to make an appearance in The Flash. In Arrow we saw some potential romantic feelings between Felicity and Barry and it looks like those feelings are going to develop when she appears in The Flash.
Executive producer Greg Berlanti explained, "That's our hope. Our hope is to get some crossovers going sooner rather than later with all the shows. We have all sorts of romantic possibilities for both of them on both show. Hopefully the first time Felicity comes to town, we'll deal with all that stuff."
We will see Emily Bett Rickards, in her now very familiar role of Felicity Smoak, in Arrow season three, which will premiere on The CW on October 8. Meanwhile, The Flash will premiere on The CW on October 7 and, while we do not yet know when we will see Felicity Smoak, or any other Arrow characters, popping up in The Flash, we are certainly looking forward to it.
