The CW to introduce The Flash on 'Arrow' season 2

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -
 
(AP) - The upcoming season of The CW's "Arrow" is getting some flash, as in the popular DC comic book character, the network announced at Tuesday's annual Television Critics Association press tour.

"We plan to introduce a recurring character and the origin story of Dr. Barry Allen, who you know as The Flash," said network President Mark Pedowitz. "We do want to expand upon the DC Universe. We think that there are rich characters we can use, and we felt like this was a very organic way to get there."

If all goes as planned, there could be a spinoff.

"Arrow" debuted in the 2012-2013 season and was The CW's most popular new show.

It stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, who is based on the DC Comics character The Green Arrow. A spoiled billionaire who was stranded on an island for five years, Queen returns home as a secret hooded crime fighter out to rid his city from corruption using his newfound talent with a bow and arrow.

"Arrow" returns for its second season in October.
