John Wesley Shipp stars as Barry Allen who becomes the Flash after an accident at his work in S.T.A.R. Labs where he gains the ability of super speed. He's joined by his co-worker, Dr. Christina "Tina" McGee (played by Amanda Pays) and close friend, Julio Mendez (played by Alex Désert).
Connections to other Fandoms
With the revival of The Flash on the CW in 2014, several actors returned to the franchise in supporting roles. John Wesley Shipp played Barry Allen's father, Henry Allen, in two seasons, as well as playing Earth 3 Jay Garrick. Mark Hamill reprised his role of the Trickster for 2 episodes and also played the Earth 3 Trickster in one episode. Amanda Pays returns as Tina McGee, now the director of Mercury Labs.
Some fans suspect Earth 3 or another Earth could be the Earth where events in the 1990s show took place. The multiverse allows for events in the 1990s show to be part of the CW Flash's continuity. This is also supported by the glimpse of John Wesley Shipp's Flash as Grant Gustin's Flash travels through to Earth-2.
