Well, that was fast!
It's been just a few weeks since Colton Haynes reprised his role of Roy Harper on The CW's Arrow, and now we have some great news for fans of the actor and the character.
Colton is set to return to the hit series as a series regular on Arrow Season 7.
“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.”
Said Haynes of his return, “I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family.”
If you watch Arrow online, you will know that Roy's most recent appearance in Star City culminated in him departing with Thea Queen on a mission to find the other Lazarus Pits.
With Willa Holland out of the show as a series regular, it means there's a good chance Thea and Roy will not be sticking together for very long.
Arrow was renewed for Season 7 by The CW earlier this month alongside nine other dramas on the network.
The show lost a lot of ground in the ratings since moving to Thursday nights in October. Arrow Season 6 is currently off 25 percent among adults 18-49.
