Former TV Flash star John Wesley Shipp will be joining the CW The Flash this Fall. For those of you too young to remember he played Barry Allen on The Flash TV series that aired during 1990-1991. This series invovled Howard Chaykin as show writer and Mark Hamill playing a different villain in the Trickster. Shipp will be playing Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) father Henry Allen in the series. Fan rejoice! This will be quite nostalgic to many viewers including myself. I remember watching the 90s series on Syfy back in those days. Who else is excited? Sound off in the comments!
