Did you enjoy these Flash quotes?
The Flash originated as a spin-off from CW’s other popular superhero show, Arrow. Originally, The Flash was going to backdoor off of Arrow, but the producers enjoyed Barry Allen’s character so much that they allowed the funds to create a full production pilot around his character.
However, The Flash kept many elements from its parent show, including the same creators, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, the same costume designer, Colleen Atwood, and the same music composer, Blake Neely.
