Season 7 kicked off with the planned finale for season 6, which had to wrap up early because of you-know-what. It also meant heartbreak for fans of the show, as one of its most popular characters, Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), sacrificed himself in order for Barry (Grant Gustin) to regain his powers. 

Despite Nash's death, the season 7 premiere also managed to be one of the funniest episodes in the history of the series, as Gustin showed-off his comedic chops in one of his best acting performances to date.

What next for Barry and Central City? With his battery recharged, does he now stand a chance in his battle against all-powerful villain Eva McCulloch, aka Mirror Master? We're finding out as the latest season unravels.

How to watch The Flash online in the UK


Sky has the rights to The Flash and other Arrowverse shows like Arrow and Supergirl in the UK, but there's no word yet on The Flash season 7's UK release, beyond 'Spring 2021' - sad, we know!

When it arrives, it will air on Sky One, which was its home for the previous seasons. 

Getting a Sky subscription might not be as expensive as you think, so be sure to check out our dedicated Sky TV deals and packages guide to make sure you're getting today's best prices and offers.

If you're not already a Sky subscriber, Now TV is your best bet for watching The Flash on the cheap and without a contract, with a Now TV Entertainment Pass the one you want.

The Flash seasons 1-5 are available to watch on-demand via Sky, but you'll have to purchase The Flash season 6 for £19.99 from the Sky Store or Amazon.

If you're currently out of the UK for whatever reason and can't access your usual streaming service, remember you can always just grab a VPN and point yourself back to Blighty to watch your favourite shows as usual.

How to watch The Flash season 7 online: stream every new episode in Australia


It's better news for comic book action fans Down Under. That's because The Flash season 7 is being shown on Fox 8 on Thursday nights at 9.30pm AEDT starting back on March 4.

It means it's pretty straightforward for Foxtel subscribers or Foxtel Now customers to watch the show - and also means it'll likely pop up on streaming-only service Binge sooner rather than later.

Those after the first six seasons of The Flash need look no further than Stan, the VoD service that features a whole host of top programming - and a FREE 30-day trial to boot.

If you happen to be going abroad and are worried that geo-blocking will stop you from watching The Flash like you normally would, don't worry - just use a VPN to point yourself back Down Under and you'll be able to stream as usual.
