At the end of season 1 Rick Cosnett’s Eddie Thawne met his unfortunate end when he sacrificed himself in order to erase Eobard Thawne from existence. Unfortunately for Rick Cosnett, Eobard is still causing trouble in the “Arrowverse” but Eddie Thawne is no where to be seen. However, we will be seeing Eddie Thawne once again, as Rick Cosnett has confirmed that he is returning to “The Flash.”

It remains to be seen how he will be brought back or what his role will be, but with time travel and the multiverse in play on “The Flash” the door is wide open for him to return. It’s also worth noting that we may not know the full extent to which Barry changed the timeline when he created “Flashpoint” so it’s always possible that more changes could be revealed before the season ends.
Rick Cosnett isn’t the only familiar face returning to the series either, as it was recently announced that Robbie Amell will be reprising his role as Ronnie Raymond.
“The Flash” will return on January 24 with “Borrowing Problems From the Future.”
