The Flash: Season 5 (2018)





Critic Consensus: The Flash's fifth season maintains the show's high standard for compelling visuals, chilling villains, and well-scripted moments of humor, but also turns a more focused gaze on the role of family dynamics amongst the increasingly complex characters.

Critic Reviews for The Flash: Season 5

All Critics (142)

The Flash mostly offers some much-needed, good, old-fashioned escapism.

Luckily, characters like Cisco (even drunk Cisco) and Ralph "many-verse" Dibny can turn even the most uneventful episodes into something funny and memorable, and Nora's energetic, bubbly energy seems like it could do the same.

Ralph actually does something right.

The Flash manages to recapture its glory days with a phenomenal and totally schway fifth season premiere.
