Over the course of 4 seasons, fans have seen many characters come and go from “The Flash” and in season 5 we’ll be saying goodbye to Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West, while Iris and Barry’s daughter Nora, played by Jessica Parker Kennedy, is set to join the cast as a series regular.
Now Deadline is reporting that “Sacred Lies” star Kiana Madeira will be joining “The Flash” season 5 as a recurring character.
Kiana will reportedly be playing a gender swapped version of Spencer Young, aka Spin.
Spencer Young is described as, “a young aspiring social media influencer who seizes the opportunity to make herself famous when she discovers there is a new hero in Central City.”
There’s no word on how often she’ll be appearing throughout season 5, but Spencer Young will be making her debut in the 4th episode of the season.
“The Flash” return on Tuesday, October 9.
“Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?”
