THE CW/DC STUDIOS: This February the last season of The Flash drops, and my one wish is for Kid Flash’s overdo return. Well wish granted… HE IS BACK Y’ALL. And ’ARROW’ alum John Diggle returns as well. Keiynan Lonsdale has portrayed Wally West, the son of Joe West and half-brother of Iris West, since season 2. In the third season of the show, he became Kid Flash. Lonsdale went on to have a long guest stint on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. However, he hasn’t appeared on The Flash in years.
“We’re so happy to reunite with the incredibly talented Keiynan Lonsdale as a part of The Flash’s final season. Because Kid Flash isn’t just another speedster—he’s a beloved part of our Team Flash family,” noted Exec Producer Eric Wallace. “So as soon as we knew he was coming back, we set out to create a special and heartfelt story for his return. The result is a brilliant performance from Keiynan that showcases a side of Wally West you’ve never seen before.”
“As one of the legacy Arrowverse characters who helped start it all, John Diggle holds a special place in our hearts, as well as the fans.” said Wallace. “Plus, the commanding presence and commitment to excellence actor/director David Ramsey brings to the screen each-and every time is truly inspiring. So, of course, it was a no-brainer to have Diggle join Team Flash in our final season!”
“Get ready for a very emotional reunion as John Diggle aka Spartan helps protect Central City alongside Team Flash one, last time,” added Wallace
