Its fourth season is not even finished that the fifth season of Arrow is already taking shape. The CW is currently looking for a new season regular named "James", who could become a significant threat for Team Arrow and Echo Kellum was promoted to series regular. And it looks like an old friend is also coming back for several episodes.
During the Justice Squad Convention in France, Colton Haynes revealed that he'll be back for multiple episodes of Arrow next season:
This revelation comes just a few days after the exclusive interview the actor gave to Entertainment Weekly where he opened up about his sexuality and the health problems that forced him to leave Arrow at the end of season three. Haynes explained that he was happier than he's ever been and already made an appearance in this year's twelfth episode of Arrow.
The character of Roy quickly became a fan-favorite on the show and his return will surely please more than one fan.
