Tom Felton Won’t Return as a Series Regular on The Flash Season 4

The Flash season 4 will return in October without Tom Felton as a series regular

Tom Felton (Harry Potter franchise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will not return as a series regular in The CW’s The Flash season 4, according to EW. He joined as a series regular in season 3 and began as an adversary to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), though he ended up as part of Team Flash. He appeared as Julian Albert, Barry’s CSI lab partner and had a romance with Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker). He has yet to sign on for guest appearances, but that doesn’t mean we wont see him. The Flash season 4 begins six months after the end of season 3.

The Flash season 4 just added Neil Sandilands as The Thinker. Other new additions include Machete himself, Danny Trejo as Breacher, a feared bounty hunter from Earth-19 and father of Jessica Camacho’s Gypsy, plus Kim Engelbrecht as The Mechanic, the right hand of The Thinker.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever. With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.

The Flash will return on October 10 at 8 PM ET. Are you guys excited for The Flash season 4? We want to hear from you! Are you sad that Tom Felton won’t be a series regular? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @SuperHeroHype.
