Unfortunately, in season 4, we did not see him, his character was left out of the show. He did make some guests star appearances in the Arrowverse here and there and it was assumed by many that he would enter the league of outcasts and misfits, called The Legends.

The news broke first at SDCC, 2019 and it was Mike Cecchini himself, who tweeted live-tweeted details via his Twitter account. Flash and he both will join hands to fight the worst of Flash fans ever. But his presence is only confirmed for a few episodes.

But that’s not all, we were informed by Cecchini that Tom Cavanagh will be cast in a different role for the next season. Ever since the show began, Tom has played multiple characters on the show, which also includes the incarnation of Eobard Thawne (a.k.a The Reverse Flash), debuting back in season 1 and then again in season 5.

A bunch of experiments gone crazy, lead to The Anti-Monitor that find out about Pariah’s version of Earth and ultimately end up destroying it.
