Season 4 of The Flash is going to air later this year and the hero Barry Allen may not be the same person we knew previously.

Our first episode is called 'Reborn,' and it is a rebirth for Barry, but he's kind of scrambled, too, because he's experienced so much so quick over the course of six months, even though for him it was an eternity. He's not Barry when we see him for the first time

This interview reveals quite a few things about the first episode of Season 4. Six months have passed since Barry Allen entered the Speed Force, although in his reality it felt like forever.

Secondly, it sounds like the team rescues him in the first episode. We won't be seeing the adventures of Kid Flash only for very long. It would have been interesting if they kept Barry Allen away for a while...
