It has been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly today that Colton Haynes will be coming back as Roy Harper later this season in the twelfth episode titled, “Unchained”!
Here’s what Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said about Colton’s return to the show:
“We are beyond thrilled that Colton will be returning to Arrow this season. It was always our intention to have him return following his departure last season, but it was a matter of finding the right story line to pull it off. That opportunity presented itself in episode 412 and we can’t wait for the fans to see this reunion.”
Colton Haynes also took to twitter to announce his return to “Arrow,” by saying he landed in Vancouver to start filming.

Will see Roy suit up as Arsenal again? Or maybe even a team up with him and Speedy in full costume?! We shall see, but it should definitely be interesting to see his response to all the changes Thea has gone through since he left Star City last season.
