Keiynan Lonsdale Joins The Flash as Wally West

For those of us who aren’t into comics and who assumed The Flash is the fastest man on earth, apparently there’s another speedster out there who will be challenging him for the title. Warner Bros. and The CW have signed up Keiynan Lonsdale (Insurgent) to play Wally West in the second season of The Flash and according to the official announcement, Lonsdale will be a series regular we’ll get to know well over season two.

Wally West becomes Kid Flash in the comics and he’s a fan favorite character. Commenting on Lonsdale’s addition to the cast, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said, “Just like when we met Grant for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero. We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”

The announcement didn’t say if Wally will actually be Kid Flash in the second season of The Flash. The Flash season two will premiere on October 6, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT.
