The Flash

The CW announced today during its portion of the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena that it has given an early renewal to "Arrow," "Jane the Virgin," "Reign," "Supernatural," "The 100," "The Flash," "The Originals" and "The Vampire Diaries," all of which appeared on the network's fall 2014 schedule, for the 2015-2016 television season.
It should come as no surprise that CBS has handed full season episode orders to all four of its new dramas, including the #1 and #2 new series of the season, "NCIS: New Orleans" and "Scorpion," Sunday's #1 scripted broadcast, "Madam Secretary," and the time period-winning suspense thriller "Stalker."
Earlier this week it was announced that "General Hospital's" Roger Howarth (Franco) had signed on for a recurring role on The CW's "The Flash," where he'll portray Mason Bridge, an award-winning reporter from the Central City Picture News. With fans wondering if Howarth's joining the series, based on the DC comic of the same name, would in any way affect his role on the daytime drama series "GH" executive producer Frank Valentini responded to inquiries by clearing things up for any worrisome viewers during a recent visit to New York City.

You may remember John Wesley Shipp from his role on "One Life to Live" as the abusive father of the Ford brothers. Or you might know him from his memorable role as football coach Mitch on "Dawson's Creek." Before both of those roles though, John Wesley Shipp was THE FLASH! It's been known for a while now that the CW network intends on remaking the series, but today comes word that Shipp will be playing a mystery role in the series!
