Season three ended with Barry Allen aka The Flash disappearing into Speed Force after stopping Savitar.
Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco Ramon/Vibe, recently told Digital Spy that the team will struggle without Barry, explaining: "We cannot keep the villains at bay with the same efficiency that he used to, so in light of that, Cisco does whatever it takes to get his friend back!"
The CW has confirmed that season 4 will begin on Tuesday, October 10 in the US. Sky1 will follow suit a couple of weeks later in the UK.
