Jordan Fisher Cast on the CW’s ‘The Flash’
Jordan Fisher is heading to Central City as Bart Allen in a recurring guest role on the CW series, The Flash. Fisher will make his debut in the 17th episode of the seventh season, which also marks the superhero drama’s 150th episode.
In the Arrowverse version of Bart Allen (also known as Impulse in the comics), the character is a future version of Barry Allen/ The Flash (played by Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (played by Candice Patton). This version of the character is a departure from the DC comic’s storyline, where Bart Allen is The Flash’s grandson.

Additionally, according to the official character description, the 26-year-old actor will be playing the world’s fastest teenager. The description also gives a little more background into Bart Allen’s story arc on the series.
“Due to Bart’s penchant for wildly impulsive behavior, a stunned Barry and Iris will have their hands full trying to teach their new son patience. But it’s a task they’ll have to accomplish, in order for their family to work together and stop Team Flash’s biggest threat yet!”
