The Flash Season 9: Parker Kennedy, Letscher & Cosnett Returning
Rick Cosnett, Matt Letscher, & Jessica Parker Kennedy are set to return for the ninth and final season of The CW's The Flash.
With only five days remaining until The CW's Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Candice Patton (Iris West-Allen) & Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow)-starring The Flash returns for its ninth & final season, we have three more familiar names to add to the already impressive line-up. EW is reporting exclusively that Rick Cosnett (CCPD Det. Eddie Thawne), Matt Letscher (Eobard Thawne(s)/Reverse-Flash), and Jessica Parker Kennedy (Nora West-Allen/XS) will also be gracing our screens for the final run. Showrunner Eric Wallace had some interesting "things" (teases) to drop in his comments regarding the trio rejoining the series- take a look:
"We're so excited to have Rick join us once more as we put together our final batch of emotional and thrilling episodes," Wallace shared. "It's especially wonderful as Rick was an integral part of the show's inaugural season. So having him return to help us conclude our show's incredible nine-year run was more than a privilege. It was a no-brainer." Wallace continued, "Having the incredibly gracious and talented Matt Letscher return for our final season was something we couldn't resist. So, we created a very special story for him, one we've been excited to tell for a while but couldn't until now. The result is a wild and bittersweet episode we hope fans — both old and new — will love." Finally, the showrunner added, "'The Flash' has always been a show about the importance of family. So having the incredible Jessica Parker Kennedy back as fan-favorite speedster XS was always in the cards. As the daughter of Barry and Iris, Jessica's already made an unforgettable mark on our show's history. And with her latest season 9 adventure, Jessica's taking her incredible portrayal of Nora West-Allen to even greater heights in a way the audience has never seen before."
