‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Loses Keiynan Lonsdale’s Kid Flash, But Gains Matt Ryan & Jes Macallan
Things are changing once again for the team of the Waverider. At the end of last season, it looked like Keiynan Lonsdale’s Kid Flash would be taking one of the vacant spots on the ‘Legends Of Tomorrow‘ crew, but it turns out that won’t be the case. And although Wally West will be around for ‘The Flash’ premiere, he won’t a season regular their either, as it seems that Keiynan has decided to move onto other things.
After news broke last night that Kid Flash would be speeding off in a new direction, Keiynan took to Twitter to clarify the situation, and to let people know he’s not gone for good. The statement reads:
Yo! Soo as a lot of you have 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 you never” situation, cause Wally West will still be round 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 lol), and for infinite reasons, my perspective on life and 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’m 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’ve learnt along the way. Thank you for believing in me & rooting for Wally to thrive, you honestly helped me see that I did indeed deserve to play him, & 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. Love Keiy.
Love you all ?? – Keiy x pic.twitter.com/JBdxUaKocA

That doesn’t mean the Waverider crew will be low on numbers though. It’s been confirmed that Matt Ryan’s John Constantine will (finally!) become an Arrowverse series regular on ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’. He’s joined by Jes Macallan, who being upped to series regular as Time Bureau agent Ava Sharpe in Season 4.
‘Legends Of Tomorrow‘ will return for Season 4 on Sky One in Autumn 2018.
