Keiynan Lonsdale Explains Why He Won't Be Series Regular On 'Legends' or 'The Flash'

Yesterday, we sadly reported that Keiynan Lonsdale would not be a series regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s upcoming fourth season, and now he’s speaking out on the subject.

The 26-year-old actor and singer shared the reasoning behind the decisions of him not taking on Wally West/Kid Flash full time.

“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,” he wrote on Instagram.

“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,” he added. “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.”
