Two more names have joined the cast of The CW’s “The Flash” for its upcoming second season. First up, newcomer Violett Beane has been cast as Jesse Quick, a new ally for Barry who also has super-speed powers.
In the series, she plays a brilliant, quirky college student who gets caught up in Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) battle with Season 2’s antagonist Zoom who has yet to be cast.
Also joining the cast is another villain with Demore Barnes set to play Tokamak. In the show he’s a charming, but cocky scientist. When Caitlin recruits him to join the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Hewitt jumps at the opportunity and hopes to fulfil his destiny as a powerful meta-human.
Actress Malese Jow is also slated to return as Linda Park, Iris West’s colleague and Barry’s past love interest, who puts both of them in unexpected danger. Also out today is a new poster which you can see below. The new season kicks off on October 6th.
