Now that he's back in the land of the living, The Flash's Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) is officially here to stay!

Ralph had a seemingly fatal run in with DeVoe (Neil Sandilands) in Season 4, but as it turned out he was still alive in the recesses of his own mind while DeVoe took control of his body. Luckily, Barry (Grant Gustin) helped him get control of his body back, bringing him back to life for all intents and purposes. Now, it looks like Elongated Man will be a permanent member of Team Flash!

"We love Hartley, and we love Ralph, and there's a tremendous amount of Ralph Dibny stories that we haven't tapped into from the comics yet that we certainly want to do, so it's going to be great to have him around," showrunner Todd Helbing recently told TV Guide. "He's grown a lot this season, and I think there's some more growth to happen with him."
