Wentworth Miller Returning To The Flash For One Last Episode

Wentworth Miller won't be leaving the Arrowverse without a final hoorah. 

During an appearance at German Comic-Con this week, Miller confirmed that he will return as Leonard Snart (better known by his much cooler moniker of Captain Cold) for one more episode of The Flash, which will air in January 2018. 

As for what may happen to his character in the future, the actor stated that he would definitely be down to make a comeback if the circumstances are right. "I love this character, and I have a lot of affection for the cast. There are many reasons to come back. It just has to be the right story," said Miller. 

Miller announced that he would be leaving The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in early November, breaking the news in a post on Instagram. "Currently shooting some of my final episodes as Captain Cold/Leonard Snart on the CW's Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash. Grateful–now and in advance–to a pair of talented casts and hardworking crews... I've had a tremendous time playing this character... It's been an opportunity, an education, and a f***ing blast," he wrote. 

It was just a month ago that the actor appeared as Citizen Cold from Earth-X, an alternate version of Captain Cold that could possibly set up a new future for himself within the sprawling DC television universe. Even more recently, Citizen Cold popped up in last week's midseason finale of Legends of Tomorrow. It's assumed that Miller's involvement in The Flash will still be as Citizen Cold, potentially laying down the groundwork for a small Flash/Legends of Tomorrow crossover. 

It will certainly be nice to see Miller interact with the Flash cast again, including Grant Gustin as the titular Scarlet Speedster, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash.

The Flash will return to the CW on Tuesday, January 16 at 8 p.m. ET.
