We reported earlier this year that actor Colton Haynes would be returning to Arrow this season to reprise his character, ‘Arsenal‘. This week Arrow show producers confirmed that he would be making his return in episode 12 of this season. For more on this check out the details below, and share your thoughts after the JUMP. Arrow airs on Wednesday evenings at 7pm central on CW.
In a statement, executive producer Marc Guggenheim said, “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 storyline to pull it off.” He also said exactly when Haynes – and Roy – will return, as “that opportunity presented itself in episode 412 and we can’t wait for the fans to see this reunion.”
That episode should be shortly after the winter break. As to why he’s coming back, it probably has something to do with Thea’s current disposition – slightly murderous because of her time in the Lazarus Pit.
