It seems that Julian Albert will not be helping Team Flash in saving Barry Allen from the Speed Force. Tom Felton who joined the show last season on CW’s superhero series as Barry’s CSI supervisor will not be returning for the fourth season as a series regular.
Over the course of time on the series, Tom’s character made some pretty significant character development. We saw him first as Barry’s source of headache, then turned to become Savitar’s minion, and after being saved by Team Flash, he became a very valuable member of the team. We also saw, for a brief moment, Julian having a romantic relationship with Caitlin Snow, which was short-lived when she turned into Killer Frost.
When The Flash returns this fall (October 10, Tuesday at 8/7c), the series will pick up six months since Barry was imprisoned in the Speed Force. The team (excluding Julian) then sets up a plan to rescue the Scarlet Speedster.
Tom Felton was also not seen last weekend at Comic-Con where his co-stars were present, and it seems that he is not set to appear as a guest-star or as a recurring role, but hopefully this may change when it comes to story or scheduling.
