Colton Haynes will reprise his role as Roy Harper (Arsenal) as a series regular for the seventh season of “Arrow,” Deadline reports.
“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to ‘Arrow,’” “Arrow” 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.”
“I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my ‘Arrow’ family,” Haynes added.
Haynes first appeared as Harper in the first season. He became a series regular on season two and three and became a guest star on season four. He was absent from season five but returned as a guest role again in season six.
“Arrow” season six currently airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m.
