“Arrow” fans were forced to say goodbye to two series regulars in season 6 when Paul Blackthorne and Willa Holland parted ways with the show, but it’s been confirmed that fan favorite Colton Haynes will be returning as a series regular in the fall.
Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper, and it’s safe to say that following the events of the season finale, Team Arrow needs him now more than ever.
Stephen Amell recently spoke to TV Guide about the return of Roy Harper and he noted that he’s looking forward to working with Colton Haynes again.
“It’s going to be wonderful to work with Colton again. Obviously Roy Harper is such an integral part to the Arrow universe, and both personally and professionally I think it’s going to be fantastic.”
Emily Bett Rickards also made it clear that she’s looking forward to exploring the dynamic between Roy and Felicity.
“I’m so game! I’m so game for Colton to be back,” Emily Bett Rickards said. “I get my friend back! I miss Roy Harper! I want Felicity and Roy to have a friendship and have his broodiness overtake her quirkiness – like I want that dynamic back. There’s no one like Colton Haynes, so I’m excited!”
Even though Oliver has had a number of allies by his side over the last few years, fans have still been eager to see Roy back in the mix, so perhaps we’ll be seeing the Green Arrow and Arsenal team up once again.
First Oliver just has to find a way to get out of prison.
