Legends of Tomorrow is filling one of the Waverider‘s empty seats with a familiar face: The Flash‘s Keiynan Lonsdale.
Legends of Tomorrow lost two regulars earlier this season when Victor Garber’s Martin Stein died during the Crisis on Earth-X crossover and Franz Drameh’s Jax Jackson left soon after to deal with his grief and find himself on his own.
The show has now found a replacement for one of those empty seats on the Waverider: Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West, aka Kid Flash, reports EW.
We’ve seen little of Wally this season on The Flash; he helped protect Central City while Barry was stuck in the Speed Force, but after Barry’s return, Wally was relegated to a supporting role.
Eventually, he decided to leave to find himself. He returned for Barry and Iris’ wedding but didn’t partake in the battle to defeat the Nazis of Earth-X because he was protecting the civilians on Earth-1.
Wally won’t be returning to The Flash before taking flight on the Waverider. He will debut on Legends of Tomorrow episode 11, which will air on February 19, before formally joining the team in episode 13.
In a statement, Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Phil Klemmer says,
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. 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.
Legends of Tomorrow returns with new episodes on Monday, February 12 at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
