The Flash will officially introduce a new Firestorm in the fourth episode of Season Two, which will air October 27, The CW has just revealed.
And, yes, as expected, it's Jay Jackson from DC's Legends of Tomorrow, played by Franz Drameh. We were told way back during Comic-Con International: San Diego that Drameh would be the other half of the Firestorm Matrix, although producers later backtracked on those remarks. Now on the eve of New York Comic Con, the network has made it official.
You can check out the synopsis below.
