The CW has released a bunch of preview pics from The Flash's upcoming Season 2 premiere episode, titled “The Man Who Saved Central City.”

Oh, and they’ve also released a “Three Weeks Later” teaser trailer, because they don’t want anyone to forget (eh, it's not that anyone would, guys) that the premiere is now only three short weeks away.

The 30-second teaser gives a cool behind-the-scenes look at the Oct. 6 season premiere, where the Scarlet Speedster (Grant Gustin) will be facing off against his old foes Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), as well as a new Big Bad in Atom-Smasher (Adam “Edge” Copeland).

Although we don’t have an official synopsis for the season premiere yet, it’s a safe bet to assume (as Comic Book points out) that Barry will be trying to come to grips with the reality that there’s another Earth out there as he comes face to face with Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick, played by Teddy Sears. Check out all the returning faces, as well as one particular new key player, in the gallery and video below, and let us know what you think.

The Flash returns to The CW on Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
