Just last month, Colton Haynes reprised his role as Roy Harper. It appears it’ll be more of a permanent situation. The 29-year-old actor returns to Arrow as a series regular for Season 7. “I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family,” Haynes said in a statement.
“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.”
Colton left The CW superhero series in the third season. During his time away, he’s starred in Scream Queens and American Horror Story: Cult, along with appearances in The Grinder, Teen Wolf and the feature film Rough Night.
Excited to see Haynes back on the show? I am, but not because I watch Arrow anymore. This just means Colton will be in Vancouver more often 🙂
