Katee Sackhoff might be appearing on The Flash in season 4. Things are not looking good for Team Flash when the upcoming season begins this fall. With Barry trapped in the Speed Force, Caitlin trying to find a balance between her old self and Killer Frost, no sign of Julian still being around, and H.R. gone, the team is more fractured than it has ever been before.
However, they will have plenty of company. Aside from the return of Harry from Earth-2 - as well as yet another incarnation of Harrison Wells at some point, and the continued presence of Tracy Brand, there are a slew of exciting guest stars slated for the upcoming season. From Sugar Lyn Beard as Hazard to Neil Sandilands as The Thinker to Danny Trejo as Gypsy's father, there will be plenty of actors and characters for fans to be excited about. And now it is possible that genre favorite Katee Sackhoff will also make an appearance on the show, though at this time it is not actually known for sure.
Sackhoff tweeted a picture earlier today of a script along with the following caption: "At the airport headed to see my man memorizing dialogue for my new job....you'll have to wait till Monday to find out." The tweet has since been deleted -- possibly because she tried to hide all evidence of what the job was but may have missed a few spots. Before she was able to delete the tweet however, Comicbook managed to find two pretty strong clues to the script being one for The Flash. The first clue was the image of a very familiar lighting bolt logo, and the other was the beginnings of one of the show's production companies -- Berlanti Productions.
Sackhoff is best known for playing Kara Thrace, aka Starbuck, on Battlestar Galactica. She's worked steadily since Battlestar, including a major role on Longmire and quite a bit of voiceover work which has included a few comic book based roles. She is also a bit of a scream queen, having appeared in several horror movies over the years such as Halloween H2O and Oculus.
Assuming the clues are correct and Sackhoff is headed to Central City, nothing is known at this time as to who she might be playing. Human or meta-human, hero, villain, victim or bystander. It's not even clear if she would guest star on a single episode, show up for several, or is even joining the series as a regular. If Sackhoff's tweet is correct, fans will not have to wait long to find out the answers to all these questions. For now, though, all we can do is guess.
The Flash returns to The CW on Tuesday, October 10.
