Sounds Like Roy Harper is Returning to ARROW This Season

Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper was introduced early on in Arrow, eventually joining Oliver Queen’s team and becoming Arsenal. In season three, Roy faked his death and left town, leading to Haynes’ exit as a series regular. Since then, the character appeared on an episode of season four, but he’s been absent since. However, there has been mutual interest from Haynes and the show’s creative team in bringing him back.

Well, fans of the character will be happy with this news. On Twitter, Haynes replied to a fan about Roy, and he matter-of-factly states that he’s coming back “very soon.” It’s unknown which episode of Arrow will mark his return or how big his role is, but this is definitely awesome news to hear.

Stay tuned for more as we have it. Arrow returns on Thursday, October 12th at 9 PM EST on The CW.
