Kimiyo Hoshi Doctor Light Coming to The Flash Season Two, and More Wally West Details


Not to be confused with the evil Doctor Light (Arthur Light) or the Mega Man character, Kimiyo Hoshi is coming to season 2 of The Flash as Doctor Light!

While the evil character sharing the same name was mentioned on Arrow previously, showrunner Gabrielle Stanton told TVLine that “Doctor Light” would appear during the show’s upcoming second season, but “it’s going to be the female version” of the character, which means Kimiyo Hoshi! Along with Wally West, we’re getting some quality additions to the Flash family this fall following the show’s return on October 6.

And speaking of Wally West, Stanton also mentioned that, “We are a doing our special Flash magic where we take a comic book character and give it just a little bit of a ‘Hmmm,’ so that you’re like, “Oh!” She says they’re bringing him in “in a really, really cool way … that I don’t think the audience will see coming. He will definitely have a very interesting and close relationship with Team Flash.”

Speculate away!
