The Flash‘s cast just got a little bigger.
Deadline reports Danielle Nicolet, who plays Cecile Horton, has been upped to a series regular for Season 5. Nicolet’s promotion comes just a full week after Keiynan Lonsdale revealed he isn’t returning as Kid Flash in a series regular role.

As Central City District Attorney Cecile Horton, Nicolet debuted in Season 1 of the show for a short time. She later reappeared in Season 3 as a love interest for Joe West. Over the course of the series, she has shown up frequently, becoming aware of Barry Allen’s identity as the Flash and helping Team Flash as best she can.
During Season 4, she became pregnant with Joe’s daughter and acquired the ability to read minds while she was expecting. Her telepathic powers helped Team Flash defeat the Thinker in the finale, but the birth of her and Joe’s daughter seems to have taken away her abilities. The season ended on the celebration of their daughter.
Airing Tuesday nights on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, Tom Cavanaugh and Jesse L. Martin.
