Deadline reports that Brandon McKnight has been promoted to series regular for the seventh season of The Flash.
The first episode of The Flash season 6 introduced to viewers to Brandon McKnight’s Chester P. Runk, a brilliant online streamer who built a gravitational wave emitter that nearly destroyed everything after it malfunctioned and created a black hole.
