Keiynan Lonsdale has been cast as Wally West on The Flash on the CW and will be a series regular. According to THR, the actor known for his role in Insurgent was exactly what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg was looking for.
"Just like when we met Grant [Gustin] 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 producers of the show have been teasing that there will be additional speedsters in the next season of the show. However, there's no news yet whether or not Wally will have his super-speed powers right off the bat.
The second season of The Flash starts on October 6 on the CW.
