Laurel Lance was killed at the hands of Damien Darhk in “Arrow” season 4, and fans were sad to see her go. We got to see the return of Laurel in the 100th episode of “Arrow” but considering the fact that she was basically nothing more than a hallucination, the return was unfortunately short-lived.

Although Laurel Lance may be gone from the “Arrowverse” Katie Cassidy isn’t, as she made a few appearances on the show as Black Siren in season 5. Black Siren has been locked up on Earth-1, but we haven’t seen the last of her.

Katie Cassidy will be returning to “Arrow” as Black Siren and according to THR she’ll be a series regular in season 6. It’s also been confirmed that Katie will be appearing in the last two episodes of season five.

“One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a statement. “Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren. We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”

When it comes to villains Black Siren is as bad as they come, but when she infiltrated Team Arrow Oliver seemed to have high hopes that she could be redeemed.

We’ll have to wait and see how things play out for Black Siren in the “Arrowverse” but one thing’s for sure, we’re happy she’s back.

“Arrow” will return on Wednesday with “Disbanded.”
