While he was announced as no longer being a series regular, we’ve got good news for Colton Haynes‘ Roy Harper: He will be back in Arrow Season 8!
EW reported today that Colton Haynes will be back as Roy and will be “recurring” in Season 8, just like Willa Holland’s Thea. “We couldn’t have ended the show without having him back,” showrunner Beth Schwartz told the site.
Colton joins Willa Holland, Susanna Thompson, Josh Segarra, Colin Donnell, John Barrowman, Rila Fukushima, Byron Mann, and others who have already been confirmed for Arrow’s final run. The new season premieres October 15 on The CW; pictures from the season premiere can be found here.
