The CW has announced yesterday another addition to The Flash cast. Keiynan Lonsdale is joining the second season of the show as a series regular, playing none other than Wally West.
Who is Wally West you ask, and why does the name sound so familiar?! Well that might be because he’s also known as the Kid Flash, the Barry Allen’s Flash sidekick, and he is the third person to go by The Flash.
In the comics Wally is Iris’s nephew, though I imagine that for the show they will probably make him her cousin or something. But what does this mean? Is Barry getting a sidekick so early in the game? Will Wally be introduced in the series for long-term plans? What? What? I’m getting quite excited about this second season!
