As production for CW's The Flash Season 2 continues, the original line up begins to expand even further. In addition to Teddy Sears starring as the OG speedster Jay Garrick and Shantel VanSanten being introduced as Patty Spivot, a new love interest for one and only Barry Allen; Keiynan Lonsdale will feature as Wall West AKA Kid Flash.
In the comics, various iterations have placed Wally West as the nephew Iris West as well as the husband to Linda Park. A much loved character by most readers of the original content, Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer for the show, added that "Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero."
Although known as being the second fastest of all Flashes, there has been numerous occasions on which his mentor Barry Allen has been beaten. So watch it Barry, the kid is fast.
The Flash returns October 7, 2015 on The CW.
