We have Reverse Flash for Season 1.

Zoom for Season 2.

And now Savitar for Season 3.

In addition, we also have Wally West, Jesse Quick and the alternate-Earth Jay Garrick.

Too many speedsters for The Flash TV series?

Well, there is good news if you think along those lines as it's learned The Flash Season 4 main villain will not be a speedster.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed no speedster villain for The Flash Season 4 at the recent DC TV panel at PaleyFest.

"Next season, we're not going to have a speedster as the main bad guy," Kreisberg said, with THR noting the crowd erupted with a thunderous applause.

No details were mentioned who The Flash Season 4 bad guy will be, but Kreisberg did talk about The Flash Season 3's Savitar.

"With Savitar, we know who he is, and we've been planning this for a while," Kreisberg said. "The first two seasons were about having fun with his powers, and this season for Barry is really about the pitfalls of having powers, and that's the story we wanted to tell. That's why Savitar was the perfect villain for that story." 

"The Flash" airs Tuesdays on The CW starring Grant Gustin.
