One of the burning questions on The Flash Fan’s minds at the end of the 2017 San Deigo Comic Con was, “Where is Tom Felton,” and “ Is Tom Felton going to be in season four of The Flash?” According to other outlets, the answer is no.
It turns out that during the Flash Panel, Tom Felton was attending a different convention called ‘Festa Dell’Unicorno’ (Comics and Folklore Festival of Unicorn)in Italy. There he was interviewed by The Fantasy in Touch, a nonprofit organization that promotes fantasy TV, Film, and Literature.
This does not mean that he will not be returning to the show. EW reported that Tom Felton has not booked an episode of season 4 yet. However, the fact that other guest stars have been revealed is a bit damning.
As of yet, Felton has not booked a return to the show — Floriana Lima, for instance, will return for “multiple episodes” of Supergirl next season despite not returning as a series regular — but as with all actors in the Berlanti-verse, there’s a chance we could see Felton again if it makes sense for the story and his scheduling permits it.
EW also reported the fact that other guest stars have been revealed which is a bit damning.
The news comes on the heels of The Flash casting The 100 alum Neil Sandilands as DC villain Clifford Devoe, a.k.a. The Thinker, and Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion, Eye in the Sky) as DC character The Mechanic, a highly intelligent engineer who designs devices for Devoe. Plus, Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn, Sons of Anarchy) has signed on to play the role of Breacher, a feared bounty hunter from Earth-19 and the imposing father to inter-dimensional bounty hunter, Gypsy (Jessica Camacho).
Season four of the Flash has just started filming and the entire season hasn’t been fully written. There is still a possibility that Tom Felton will return but not as a season regular, at least for the first half. It is also important to note that neither Team Flash or Tom Felton has confirmed or denied the rumors of him not returning to season 4 of the flash.
Season 4 of the Flash premieres Oct 10th on the CW at 8/9c
