We have yet another new character on The Flash to look forward to and this time it's another speedster Wally West aka Kid Flash!

Keiynan Lonsdale, best known for his role in the movie Insurgent, has been cast as Wally West, Iris West's relative in the comics. His character on the show will mark the 4th appearance of a speedster other than the Flash, the other three being Tom Cavanagh's Reverse Flash, Teddy Sears' upcoming Jay Garrick, and the also upcoming Professor Zoom.

Can this news get any better??


Not only is Lonsdale going to be making an appearance as Wally, but he's also a Season 2 regular cast member!

So no weird cameo appearance or fan service episode, Wally is definitely going to be playing a large role in Season 2.

What do you think? Are you excited for Keiynan Lonsdale's portrayal of Kid Flash? Leave a comment below!

The Flash speeds back to us (quickly I hope) on October 6.
