The Flash Season 5 casting news that we’ve all been waiting for has arrived: FlashTVNews has received official confirmation from The CW that Jessica Parker Kennedy, who made a series of special appearances in The Flash Season 4 as a “Mystery Girl” before being revealed as Nora West-Allen in the season finale, has been upgraded to series regular for the fifth season.
Nora is the daughter of Barry and Iris from the future and she has super-speed powers of her own. It is rumored that she might be using the superhero moniker “Rewind” and like her comic book inspiration Dawn Allen she may have a brother; all we know for sure so far is, as revealed in the season finale, she made “a big mistake.”
Interesting trivia: Jessica played the villain “Plastique” in the Smallville episode of the same name! Would you believe that episode aired nearly ten years ago? She’s sticking in the DC family, it seems!
The Flash Season 5 airs Tuesdays this Fall on The CW. We should probably have a premiere date fairly soon; as always, follow @FlashTVNews on Twitter for updated news on the show as it comes in!
The fifth season of The Flash also stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Hartley Sawyer, and Danielle Nicolet.
