Katie Cassidy is making her DC TV return in a very big way!
The actress has been promoted to a series regular on Arrow moving into Season 6. She will be taking up the role of Black Siren in the final two episodes of Season 5, and will return to the part in the Fall.
"One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us. Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren," executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a recent statement. "We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family."
The last time we crossed paths with Laurel's Earth-2 doppelganger, she was locked up in an ARGUS facility after trying to kill Felicity. Currently, it is unknown what Cassidy's return could mean for the current Black Canary, Dinah Drake.
Before she returns to Arrow, fans will meet up with Laurel once again in the Season 2 finale of Legends Of Tomorrow, which airs on April 4th.
So, what do you think, Infinite Earths fans?
