The vigilante returns.
Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper/Arsenal will be a series regular in Arrow: Season 7.
Entertainment Weekly reports Haynes will reprise his role as the vigilante in the new season after returning to the show for a two-episode arc in Season 6. “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.”
Haynes’ Arsenal was introduced in Arrow as a recurring character in the second half of Season 1. He then became a regular at the start of Season 2 before leaving the show at the end of Season 3, and then finally coming back in the sixth season. “I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family,” Haynes said.
