The great thing about fan favorite characters that don’t die is there is always a chance they will come back. Colton Haynes has just signed a deal to return to the CW’s Arrow as a series regular for season seven. Haynes will reprise his role as Roy Harper, formerly known as Arsenal.
Roy Harper was a recurring character in season one, joining Team Arrow after getting superpowers. Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) trained Harper to become Arsenal. Roy left Star City and girlfriend Thea Queen (Willa Holland) after being identified as a vigilante and faking his death. Roy has shown up a couple times since then.
“I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family.” – Haynes
The latest appearance was in this current season. Roy and Thea reunited and left Star City . Their mission is to find the remaining Lazarus pits before the new League of Shadows can. Which leads to the question: If Willa Holland has left the show, what does mean for Thea and Roy?
Arrow is currently in its sixth season and airs Thursday nights on the CW.
