Keiynan Lonsdale, who plays Wally West/Kid Flash, announced he will be leaving The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in a full-time capacity.
Lonsdale, who was promoted to a series regular in the back half of Legends of Tomorrow season 3, will not be a series regular in either The Flash or Legends moving forward. However, Lonsdale assures us that his departure is not permanent.
Lonsdale wrote of his departure on Instagram, “It’s definitely not a total goodbye or ‘see ya never’ situation, cause Wally West will still be round when you need him the most! :) It’s just that it won’t be full time anymore.”
He also made it clear that the choice to be a part-time member of the Arrowverse was his choice: “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably noticed lol), and for infinite reasons my perspective on life & what I want from it now is just completely different.
“Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path, and I’m so damn grateful to both shows for honouring & respecting that with me.”
He adds, “I love Kid Flash, I love the family I’ve made, & I’m absolutely in love with the invaluable lessons I’ve learnt along the way.”
Besides the Arrowverse, Lonsdale recently appeared in Love, Simon and has released music, including a single called “Kiss the Boy.”
Love you all ⚡️❤️ – Keiy x pic.twitter.com/JBdxUaKocA
