The new season of ‘The Flash’ will be a whole lot faster. The CW revealed the first look of Keiynan Lonsdale as Kid Flash on July 12 and fans went wild over the ‘fantastic’ looking suit and how they can’t wait to see this speedster in action! Click to see.
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin, 26) better watch out because he may no longer be the fastest man on The Flash! Ever since Keiynan Lonsdale, 24, joined on the show as Wally West, fans have eagerly anticipated when he’d finally turn into Kid Flash. Well, the wait is finally over!
The CW released the first photo of Kid Flash on July 12, according to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site, Variety. Wally West will transform into The Flash’s young sidekick for Season 3, making his first appearance in the costume in the episode “Flashpoint” on Oct. 4 at 8:00 PM on The CW. Wally has been a part of the show since Season 2, so fans have been waiting a long time for him to don the yellow and red outfit.
They’ll have to wait a few more months to see Wally in action – and that might be too much for some to handle! “So stoked for Kid Flash next season,” one fan wrote, while another used the power of ALL CAPS to write “I AM SO EXCITED TO HAVE KID FLASH.” All Caps — serious business.
“Keiynan is going to be fantastic as Kid Flash,” a fan said after seeing the first pictures of the character. One fan said she was “gonna cry,” while others were just stunned by how good the costume looks on Keiynan. “Can’t believe how much they’ve nailed it,” one fan wrote. “looks so good.” Indeed it does!
@KeiynanLonsdale is going to be fantastic as Kid Flash. Suit looks good.

Kid Flash was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino in 1959 to be a teen sidekick of Barry Allen. Wally would take on the role of The Flash after Barry famously died during the Crisis on Infinite Earths event in 1985-86. Huh. Hopefully, nothing like that happens to Barry during this new season of the show. Fans will have to find out all the speedy details when Season 3 kicks off on Oct. 4 on the CW.
What do you think about the Kid Flash costume, HollywoodLifers? Are you going to watch the new season of The Flash?
