In the news yesterday we learned that Keiynan Lonsdale would not be returning as a series regular for DC's Legends of Tomorrow or The Flash. The actor, who joined The Flash in season 2 as Wally West and later became Kid Flash, made the jump over to Legends in the second half of its third season. He took to social media to address the change in status and if that means we won't be seeing the character again.
Yo! Soo a lot of you have now read, I'm not returning next season as a series regular for The Flash or Legends. It's definitely not a total goodbye or "see ya never" situation, cause Wally West will still be around when you need him the most! :) It's just that it won't be full time anymore.
I've changed a lot in the past year (as you've probably noticed), 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 am so damn grateful to both shows for honouring & respecting that with me.
I love Kid Flash, I love the family I've made, & I'm absolutely in love with the invaluable lessons I learnt along the way. Thank you for believing in me & for rooting for Wally to thrive, you honestly helped me see that i did indeed deserve to play him, and that shit right there made me a stronger actor.
Anyway, I hope you stick around for the new adventures, the only thing I can promise is Magic.
The 26-year-old Australian actor has also appeared in the Divergent franchise and in the film Love Simon.
