Roy Harper is coming back to Star City during this season of Arrow. Roy left after faking his death. He had been through quite a bit and took the fall when Ra's al Ghul outed Oliver Queen as the Arrow. Ollie's sister, Thea, later tracked him down to try to convince him to return. He then left her with his Arsenal gear in the hopes she would move on without him.
Colton Haynes made the announcement via Twitter.
No further information is available as to what brings about his return or how long he'll stick around. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated:
"We are beyond thrilled that Colton will be returning to Arrow this season. It was always our intention to have him return following his departure last season, but it was a matter of finding the right story line to pull it off. That opportunity presented itself in episode 412 and we can’t wait for the fans to see this reunion."
With Thea having taken the role of Speedy, what would you like to see happen with the return of his character?
