(Warning - the following contains plot SPOILERS for at least one future episode of The Flash. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests is wise...)

Now, with The Flash currently treating 'going from strength to strength' as the bare minimum expected of it, it's not too surprising that a whole lot of fans are already over-excited about the prospect of even more speedsters hitting the screen. After all, if any show can thrust a giant pile of super fast folks into one room, and then make it into engaging television, it's The Flash.

All of which makes it extremely good news that...

Wally West Is About to Arrive on 'The Flash'

That's right – that Wally West. The one who was, for 23 or so years, the comic book Flash (and, before that, the original Kid Flash), and who, we found out a few months back, is set to be played on The Flash by Insurgent star Keiynan Lonsdale...

The only problem? We didn't know when he'd be arriving on the show, thus making his casting more vaguely interesting than perilously exciting.

Now, though...

We Know Exactly When Wally West Will Arrive

Specifically, it'll be in The Flash's winter finale – coming December 8.

That's right – in just a few short weeks, Wally West will finally be heading to our screens, and... that's actually about all we know as of yet, courtesy of the following (SPOILER-filled) synopsis from the CW:

When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale).

While there may not be a lot to go on there in terms of plot, however, it's important to note that WALLY WEST IS ABOUT TO ARRIVE.

Which, for anyone who grew up reading Flash comic books in the '90s (coughcoughcough) is a super huge deal.

The big question now, then?

What do you reckon?
