Keiynan Lonsdale will be returning to The Flash as Wally West following the 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' crossover.

His character hasn't been seen on the CW show since the season five premiere in 2018, but he'll be returning in 2020 for season six, episode 14 of the Arrowverse show.

Announcing the news, showrunner Eric Wallace told TV Insider: “After working on his inner life in Tibet, Wally West, aka Kid Flash, is back to help Team Flash against a familiar threat… but one with a very new face!

“As always, it’s a real treat having our Flash family member Keiynan Lonsdale back to play the youthful speedster, but what’s different this time [is that] Wally has grown, along with his speedster abilities, too."

"This won’t be your same old Kid Flash making a reappearance,” he added, teasing “a fresher, more exciting direction for the character as Wally – just like the rest of Team Flash – deals with a post-Crisis world."

The Crisis crossover event is currently three episodes in, with two more to follow at the start of next year.

'Crisis on Infinite Earths' premiered on December 8 with the Supergirl episode, followed by Batwoman on December 9 and The Flash on December 10. Post-Christmas, the series will then conclude with Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow straight after on January 14.
