The CW has announced that the premiere of The Flash will be extended by 3 minutes.

We're guessing it's not three minutes of commercials, but possible footage that was cut from the Comic-Con debut and put back in.

Speaking of the first episode of The Flash, the pilot leaked online, so it seems if you have already watched the leaked version, you can tune in again to check out three minutes of brand new footage.

When you can run as fast as The Flash -- a lot can happen in 3 minutes!

The additional footage also means Supernatural will get pushed back to a 9:03pm ET start time.

The Flash premiers Tuesday, October 7th at 8pm ET.


After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.
