WB has announced its latest venture into the realm of audio dramas with The Flash: Escape The Midnight Circus, coming exclusively to Apple Podcasts this month.
This scripted audio drama will star Max Greenfield (New Girl) as Barry Allen/The Flash, in a six-part podcast exclusively on Apple Podcasts.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment describes the podcast as a “companion piece” to the film currently in theaters, though it’s unclear if that means it’s in the same canon of the film or not.
The first two parts will be released on Monday, July 10th, with the remaining episodes dropping weekly on Mondays. The studio says the series will be exclusive to Apple Podcasts “for a limited time” before branching out to other podcast platforms.
Check out the trailer and the full synopsis below:
Barry Allen is at the height of his powers and fame, firmly ensconced as Central City’s favorite Super Hero – but when being The Flash forces him to let Iris down one time too many, she decides to call it quits. Undeterred, Barry figures he can use the Speed Force to go back in time and set things right. But something goes wrong, Barry tumbles into a new dimension, finding himself in a small bedroom with Captain Cold, his powers gone. Cold tells Barry that he’s an unwitting participant in a televised tournament, THE MIDNIGHT CIRCUS, which pits humans, superheroes and rogues against one another in life-or-death games of chance. Survive the competition and Barry earns his freedom, recreate the conditions of his original transformation, and return to his own timeline. But to do so, he’ll have to rely solely on his wits. And if that wasn’t hard enough, he soon finds himself facing his toughest opponent yet: Iris West.
All six episodes will also be included with The Flash on Digital, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray whenever it’s released on physical home media.
