>"This year we’re exploring the theme of legacy, and it’s really sparked by the arrival of Nora West-Allen, Barry and Iris’ daughter from the future." executive producer Todd Helbing notes. "After learning about the future and what’s happened to everyone, each character will explore what’s truly important and what legacy they want to leave behind."

>"Legacy" is also the driving force behind new big bad Cicada (AMERICAN PIE‘s Chris Klein). However, unlike previous villains, he isn’t too concerned with the Scarlet Speedster – "His endgame isn’t about The Flash. It’s more of a bigger scale issue, but he will impact Barry & co".

>"A big part of the story of this season is about the metas, where they got their powers from, and it’s tied into everybody’s journey this year," the EP shares. "Cicada’s powers are different than DeVoe’s and any of the speedsters in the way they affect our team."
