According to The Hollywood Reporter, Colton Haynes has closed a new deal to return to Arrow as a series regular for their recently announced season 7.
“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to Arrow. 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,” the Arrow executive producers said in a joint statement, according to THR.
If I’m being honest, though, I’m a little confused about this announcement. I love Colton Haynes and Roy Harper has always been in my top five of Arrow characters. But he also just left to be with Thea (Willa Holland). After seasons of struggle, they finally were able to be together and get their happy ending. So how are they going to bring Roy back? More importantly, why is Roy going to come back? What impact will this have on Team Arrow, both original and new?
What do you all think? Are you excited Roy is returning? Are you just confused as we are? Let us know in the comments below!
Arrow airs Thursdays at 9/8c on the CW.
