Is Wally West coming to The Flash on The CW? Show runners say it could happen next season!

The hint came at PaleyFest 2015, where Greg Berlanti addressed the question of whether other speedsters would appear on the show.

“That’s our hope,” Berlanti responded. “And we’ve already been picked up for a second season so I think if we were going to do something like that, we would do it next season.”

And the best news? Wally West is going to be African-American.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg added in September that it was indeed the show that led to West’s character being reintroduced as African-American in the comics. “What’s very cool is in the New 52 they hadn’t reintroduced Wally [yet],” Kreisberg said. He said that because DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns was working on the show, “when they reintroduced Wally, they made him African-American. So now and forever, Kid Flash will be African-American.”
