Robbie Amell Lands Red Hot ‘Flash’ Role

Robbie Amell’s series The Tomorrow People was axed by The CW, but we have not seen the last of Amell on the network. TV Line confirms Amell will be heating up the screen in the premiere season of The Flash, this fall’s spinoff of Amell’s cousin Stephen Amell’s series Arrow.

Amell will be playing Ronnie Raymond, one half of Firestorm, a DC character known for having a bit of a split identity. Ronnie will also be the fiance of S.T.A.R. lab assistant Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and he will play an important role in the particle accelerator accident that leads to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) becoming The Flash. Amell is set to make his debut in episode three.

The Flash premieres Tuesday, October 7th at 8/7c on The CW.
