EDITORIAL: With Keiynan Lonsdale Exit From The Flash, Should Another Kid Flash Be Introduced?

Keiynan Lonsdale will not be returning as Kid Flash when both Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash returns.

News broke last month that Kid Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale will not be returning to Legends of Tomorrow season 4. While it is no big deal for the show (Constantine is here now), the Flash just lost an important side character in Wally West since he did not reach his full potential on The Flash for two whole season on the show.

Keiynan Lonsdale

Comic fans will agree that he is a very important character to the Flash mythology. DC Flash Rebirth has two Wally West character. The first Wally West (red-head, former kid flash) and New 52 Wally West (African American, new kid flash where the show took inspiration from).

The big question arises, can the show introduce another Wally West (possibly the red-head) to take on the mantle of Kid Flash? With Keiynan Lonsdale now gone, what happens to Kid Flash mantle? Share your thoughts below on the possible outcome for Wally West.

Does the show need a new Kid Flash?
