While “Arrow” just recently lost one of its original cast members in Willa Holland, they will be getting one back in next season, as it was announced today that Colton Haynes will be returning as a series regular in season seven!
Here are the statements from both the executive producers and Colton himself on his return:
“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to Arrow. While we’ve always enjoyed Colton’s returns to the show, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him return as a proper series regular and we’re very excited about all the creative opportunities Roy Harper’s return affords us.”
“I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family.”
It sounds like Roy’s journey with Thea to destroy the remaining Lazarus pits won’t last very long, and I will be curious to find out the reasoning for his return to Star City. With how things are shaping up with Team Arrow this season, I wouldn’t mind seeing him suit back up as Arsenal again to where it is just him and Green Arrow out in the field. But we still got to wait and see how season six wraps everything up first, but it’s definitely good to know Roy will be back next season.
