A friend from Arrow’s past will be returning for Season 7 as a series regular: GreenArrowTV has learned that Colton Haynes (Roy Harper) is coming back to the show for the seventh season!
“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to Arrow,” the show’s executive producers said in a statement. “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,” Haynes said.
Colton first appeared on Arrow during Season 1 and was a series regular for the second and third seasons. He has made guest appearances since, including two episodes of Season 6. In his time away from the show, he appeared on such TV series as Scream Queens and Teen Wolf and even got married!
Hopefully this is just the first salvo of good news for Arrow Season 7. But first — let’s get to the end of Season 6! Arrow airs Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
