Colton Haynes will be returning to Star City as Roy Harper later this season when “Arrow” returns from it’s winter break, as Executive Producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim officially made the announcement.
Colton Haynes hinted at his return a few months ago, but it is now confirmed that he will be back for the 15th episode of season 6.
Here is the official statement from Executive Producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim about the return of Roy Harper:
“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper for a short arc on Arrow this year. Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team. His short visit turns into something surprising when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences…”
Sounds like Roy will have similar arc like Slade this year, as a couple of episodes were dedicated to his story earlier this year, and where things will not be the same for him once it is over.
Season 6 of “Arrow” returns on January 18th with the 10th episode of the season titled, “Divided.”
