Keiynan Lonsdale Joins DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow As Firestorm Exits

Keiynan Lonsdale Joins DC's Legends Of Tomorrow As Firestorm Exists

The Flash has joined the Legends of Tomorrow!

You may have been wondering why Wally West has been so absent from The Flash Season 4–it’s because Keiynan Lonsdale is coming on board the Waverider and joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Following the departure of Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Kid Flash is now being added to the cast.

Victor Garber’s Professor Stein was recently killed off on Legends of Tomorrow as Garber is leaving the series to do plays, which also saw Franz Drameh leaving the show with his character, Jax, exiting in order to live his own life to the fullest.

Keiynan Lonsdale is set to return to Legends in episode 11, which will air Feb. 19, and then Wally will officially joins the team in episode 13 (Wally appeared in the Legends Season 3 premiere).

“We loved working with Keiynan in our series premiere — the episode in which we learned that in between seasons 2 and 3 he had been fighting crime in Central City with Nick Zano’s Nate Heywood. So when his character stepped away from Flash to go on walkabout, after being dumped and feeling somewhat estranged from his family and team, we knew that Wally West would fit in perfectly on Legends,” executive producer Phil Klemmer said in a statement, reports EW. “After all, our show is about a collection of unlikely heroes who all began their journeys questioning who they are and where they belong — only to find those answers while traveling through time and having wacky adventures. So now, Wally West is not only back in the company of old friends from the Arrowverse, he’s fighting alongside a former enemy and career arsonist Mick Rory/Dom Purcell. By the end of this season, Wally will learn that the Legends have a different definition of what it means to be a hero.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns Monday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m EST on The CW.
