Keiynan Lonsdale Explains Why Wally West Is Leaving The Arrowverse

the flash

With each passing year it seems that the “Arrowverse” gets bigger and bigger, but when the DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” returns in the fall, they’ll be losing yet another member, as Wally West will no longer be a series regular.

That’s right, Wally West is saying goodbye to the “Arrowverse” and Keiynan Lonsdale recently took to Instagram to explain the reason behind his departure.

According to Lonsdale, he’s looking to go in a different direction with his life, but that doesn’t mean Wally will be gone forever. Keiynan Lonsdale posted the following:

“Yo! Soo as a lot of you have now read, I’m not returning next season as a series regular for @cwtheflash or @cw_legendsoftomorrow. It’s definitely not a total goodbye or “see ya 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 & 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”

It’s a shame that Wally won’t be a series regular anymore, as he made a good addition to the Legends, but at least the door is open for him to return.
