According to DeadlineArrowverse vet David Ramsey will reprise his role as John Diggle/Spartan in the upcoming ninth and final season of The lightning.
“As one of the old Arrowverse characters who helped start it all, John Diggle holds a special place in our hearts as well as the fans.” executive producer Eric Wallace said in a statement. “Additionally, the commanding presence and commitment to excellence that actor/director David Ramsey brings to the screen every single time is truly inspiring. So of course it was a no-brainer to have Diggle join Team Flash in our final season! So get ready for a very emotional reunion as John Diggle aka Spartan helps protect Central City alongside Team Flash one, last time.”
Besides, The lightning alumni Keiynan Lonsdale and Sendhil Ramamurthy have also been tapped to return as Wally West/Kid Flash and Ramsey/Bloodwork for the final chapter of the CW’s long-running superhero series.
