After being gone for a large chunk of The Flash Season 5, Jesse L. Martin is coming back as Joe West!
TV Line has confirmed that Martin is back on set filming and we will see him return in Episode 15 of the current season. And yes, we will find out where he’s been.
“There’s an explanation, and then there’s another sort of thing down the line that will give more explanation as to why [Joe] was gone for so long,” Executive Producer Todd Helbing explained in a statement to TV Line.
Martin suffered a real-life back injury over the summer which caused the actor to take some time off to recover.
His TV “family” of Danielle Nicolet (Cecile) and Candice Patton (Iris) expressed their excitement in an Instagram post which you can find below.
