Back in December, the TV series Flash was being filmed in Cloverdale.
Down 176th, the street was transformed with old cars and signage to make it look like a street from the late ’90s.
Production crews were shooting scenes for season 7, which started airing Feb. 23, 2021 on The CW network in the U.S.
Season 7 has also slowly started airing on Netflix (only seven episodes are up so far) and among them is episode 6. Titled “The One with the Nineties,” the episode features a time warp plot where the main characters jump back to 1998.
In the episode the Clova was changed into a Blockbuster video store.
Paul Orazietti, the Cloverdale BIA’s executive director, even got caught in the background during one of the scenes shot in Hawthorne Square (see Tweet below).
