FANS of The Flash are set to see a whole lot more of Chester P. Runk in 2020.
The Flash has promoted Chester (Brandon McKnight) to a series regular for the upcoming season 7.
McKnight has appeared in three episodes so far during season 6.
His character, Chester, first appeared in The CW series as the tech genius who clumsily opened a black hole whilst conducting an experiment.
Team Flash saved him after his consciousness became tangled with the black hole.
The tech genius was working out of his grandmother’s cluttered garage at the time.

After spending some time at S.T.A.R Labs, he ended up joining the team.
The enthusiastic, coffee-loving superhero fanatic filled the void left by Cisco (Carlos Valdes), who went off on his own personal mission, trying to map out the changes to the multiverse.
Chester’s character is a ‘DIY’ kind of guy, who forgoes high-tech labs for junkyards to build his own one-of-a-kind gadgets.
McKnight is a Jamaican-Canadian actor who made his big screen debut in The Shape of Water, directed by Guillermo del Toro.
He previously featured in the Charles Officer-directed Akila’s Escape.
The rising star is also set to grace upcoming Quibi series Most Dangerous Game opposite Liam Hemsworth.
McKnight’s introduction as a series regular comes after The Flash announced plans to introduce its first non-DC Comics super villain.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm on The CW.
