Kid Flash fans rejoice, Wally West will be speeding back for three episodes in the new season of The Flash.
Keiynan Lonsdale will be reprising his superhero role towards the beginning of the fifth season of The CW series after his role as part of the regular cast in Season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow. Lonsdale had returned to The Flash, the series where he made his debut, in the Season 4 finale in May.

“You will see Wally in the first episode. He is in three episodes this season,” showrunner Todd Helbing confirmed to Newsarama. “We don’t have as much time with Kid Flash as I think everyone would like to see, but the story we have for him is really cool.”
Lonsdale had announced in June he would not return as a series regular on either The Flash or Legends of Tomorrow indicating he was looking to new projects while hinting that he could reprise his role as Wally West as a guest star in the future. With Lonsdale’s return now confirmed for the fifth season premiere of The Flash, it looks like Central City will have Kid Flash back in action once again, if only for a little while.
