Emily Kinney didn't have had the best luck on "The Walking Dead." After her character, Beth, was killed in the midseason finale last year, fans started a petition to bring her back. Now Kinney is returning to the small screen, but on a different show: She'll play Bug-Eyed Bandit on "The Flash," according to TV Line.

In the DC Comics universe, the insect-controlling character was originally a man known as Bertram Larvan, but The CW is switching things up. In "The Flash" the Bandit will be Brie Larvan, described as a "narcissistic tech wizard wreaking havoc in Central City."

TV Line reports that Kinney's Brie will appear in Episode 18, "All-Star Team-Up," which will be an "Arrow" crossover featuring Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer, aka The Atom, and Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity.

"The Flash" airs on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
