“We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper for a short arc on Arrow this year,” said executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle. “Roy Harper 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…”
Team Arrow has gone through a lot challenges recently with Black Canary, Mad Dog and Mr. Terrific all leaving the team after a big falling out with Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. Looks like Arsenal will help to fill the void within the team.
These rumours heated up that Colton Haynes might return when star Stephen Amell teased his possible return earlier this week. This is very exciting I’m so hyped for this actor and character.
In the comics, Roy Harper is a renegade archer he’s not your typical sidekick he abaonded Green Arrow to form his own group, he is a total badass Roy Harper is part of a team with Starfire and Jason Todd called Red Hood and the Outlaws, I recommend reading issue 26 of Red Hood and the Outlaw ? The New 52.
Arrow on the CW Network will return January 18 next year following its recent mid-season finale.
