After making a brief return for season 6 of the CW series, Entertainment Weekly confirms that the former series regular will be coming back again for the show’s seventh season.
After getting news that Arrow would be returning for another season, EW released news that actor Colton Haynes would be coming back as Roy Harper for season 7 and that he would be coming back as a series regular. Haynes was introduced in season 1 as bad boy love interest of Thea Queen, Roy Harper. His desire to be a hero led him to being trained by Oliver Queen and joining Team Arrow as Arsenal in season 2. Haynes left the series in season 3, but was able to return for regular guest appearances when his character was needed.
It is unclear if the departure of series regular Willa Holland prompted the network to bring back the character, but it looks like Team Arrow will not be down another archer anytime soon.
